We have a variety of throwing sessions available at Firefly, designed to meet the varied aims of our customers. Whether you want to meet the desires of a bucket list, look for an activity full of fun, or have an interest you’d like to lead to a hobby or even a career, all are welcome.

We value the therapeutic values of the wheel, it brings happiness, mindfulness and is a vehicle for creativity – we want these things accessible to all whatever their plan for it!
We have three fantastic potters who teaching our wheel sessions, welcoming all levels and abilities with experience teaching children, adults and embracing a variety of additional needs.

It has taken us all many hours of practice to hone our skills, the wheel is a tricky beast to master – it’s ridiculously fun and often frustrating, but never, ever dull! It teaches that mistakes are at the core of learning, and that learning keeps us young. Come take a spin, play with clay!

Handbuilding session, Children and Adults

We give you a 2 hr table allocation, clay tools and 1kg white earthenware clay to play with.
If you are new to clay we will provide a short tutorial to get you started, and offer guidance to help you along the way. If you have been to us before – to a hand building session or clay experience course, we are on hand to help and support you.

(For a more in depth introduction to ceramics, our three session clay experience course covers all the basics of wheel throwing as well as hand building and is a great stepping stone into these sessions)
