75 Minute Potter's Wheel Taster Workshop
Making a pot on the potter's wheel is one of those 'I've always wanted to try' or bucket list experiences. Our 75 minute potter's wheel taster sessions introduce you to the basic steps of how to throw on the potter's wheel.
The workshop begins with a full demonstration of the pot throwing process. Then its your turn to get hands-on and have fun practicing your pottery skills! An experienced tutor will be on hand throughout offering practical tips and guidance. You may create as many pots as you wish using an unlimited supply of clay.
As an optional extra, you can choose to hand-decorate 1 or more of your best pots using our range of coloured slips. Your creation will be left at the pottery for firing and glazing at a cost of £10 per pot.
Cost : £32 for adults and £26 for children ages 12 and upwards. (Children under 12 may prefer to attend a shorter session such as our 1 Hour Pot Throw & Decorate Workshop).
How to book: Taster workshops are held every Thurs to Sunday at 11am sharp. To reserve a place, please complete the enquiry form on our Contact page. Pre-booking essential.
Please allow approximately 4 weeks for your pots to be dried, fired & glazed before collection. We will email you to advise when your fabulous creations are ready!

Collection is preferable, however, if you do not live in the surrounding area, we can wrap and post your finished pots to your home address at additional cost.

"Had a fab time with my daughter. Demonstration of how to throw a pot, then we were let loose to try as many as we liked on our own, with great support at wobbly moments!! Very relaxing as you become engrossed in your pot as it develops!
I would thoroughly recommend the pottery to anyone really... all ages."
"We have smiles on our faces remembering a great few hours making our items! Thank you both for such a warm welcome.....we would highly recommend giving pot throwing a go at Honeybourne Pottery, really friendly and helpful instruction, especially for such novices as ourselves :)
Had a great time trying something new!"

"Alan and Annabel, (and Harry the dog), made us feel very welcome.The pottery experience started with a mug of tea and a short demonstration by Alan....and beware, he makes it look very easy! I then tried for myself and with Alan's patient support and at times quick intervention managed to create some small pots which I was pleased with for a first attempt. Great fun and gives enough time to get a feel for using the potters wheel." Anne
