Master the zen art of pottery using a potters wheel in a one-to-one wheel throwing class in Brighton, led by experienced potter Kate Brigden.
WHAT'S THIS POTTERY CLASS ALL ABOUT?
If you have become addicted to the ‘Great Pottery Thrown Down’ this is your chance to learn how to spin the wheel with a 3 hour taster session with experienced potter Kate Brigden.
Kate works from her garden workshop in Brighton, and this is where you will be going to learn the technique of ‘centering’ and the zen of wheel throwing.
This is a very personal class - one-to-one - which means you will be on an intensive learning curve. It’s not easy, and like any new skill takes time, but by closely following Kate’s instructions and expertise you will be able to make and keep up to four finished pieces - which is enough to make anyone cry. That’s pottery for you. Unexpectedly emotional, and rather thrilling.
They can’t be taken home straight away, as Kate will fire them for you, and get them ready for collection in about 2-3 weeks. Wear old clothes. Clay is clay so expect to get a bit messy.
