Potter's Wheel Taster Workshop
Create as many pots as you wish within the time. As an optional extra you can choose to decorate your best pieces on the day and leave them for firing & glazing.
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 class introduces 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 practising 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 from bowls, vases to mugs, 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. Alternatively pots can have a clear glaze applied for £8 per pot, making them water/food safe. Kiln fired pots are available for collection/postage approx. 5-6 weeks later.
COST: £36 for adults and £32 for children from the ages of 12-16 years. Children under 12 may prefer to attend a shorter session such as our 1 Hour Pot Throw & Decorate Workshop.
DURATION: Our Taster Workshop runs for 75 mins, including the demonstration. Should you wish to decorate any pots after, this would extend the workshop by approx. 30 mins.
WHEN: Taster workshops are held every Friday at 2pm, Saturday at 11am & 3pm and Sunday at 11am.
BOOKING: Pre-booking essential. To reserve a place, please use the online booking system on our Make A Booking page.
Please allow approx. 5-6 weeks for your pots to be dried, fired & glazed for collection. We will advise via email when your fabulous creations are ready along with collection times. Storage space is limited so a speedy collection is appreciated. Unfortunately we are not able to hold on to uncollected pots beyond 3 months. Collection is preferable or if you do not live in the surrounding area, we can wrap and post your finished pots to your home address at additional cost. We regret that we cannot accept responsibility for any damages or undelivered items by Royal Mail.
"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
