New to Firefly! The opportunity to practice and build your pottery wheel skills!
If you have attended our clay experience course or our tutored wheel sessions you are ready to practice the skills you’ve learnt! Perhaps you’ve learnt to throw elsewhere but need somewhere to carry on your hobby!
A potter will be on hand to offer guidance, but please note that this is NOT tuition. These sessions are NOT suitable for a first time on the pottery wheel.
Price per session £12 includes 1kg of clay, additional clay available at £3 per kilo.
Any pieces you wish to have fired are priced based on size, anything up to 10cm high x 12cm diameter is £3, big enough for a coffee cup or small bowl.
The session is 1 hour including the time for you to finish up and clean down. Sessions run on the hour starting at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
Our popular three-session course gives you a fantastic introduction to creating with clay!
On the course you will have one full session of wheel throwing, and one session learning a range of hand building techniques. When your pottery has been bisque fired, you return to decorate and glaze your work, so you complete every stage of the process all the way from clay to finished ceramics!
We have a maximum of just 8 places on each course split into groups of 4, each with a dedicated tutor. This means that you get unparalleled levels of support from our fun and friendly team. Firefly tutors are all trained artists, with extensive experience in ceramics and visual arts.
This is an entry level course for adult learners looking for an introduction to clay.
Session 1: Jan 23rd 7 - 10pm Session 2: Jan 30th 7 - 10pm
Your pots will take approximately 3-5 weeks to dry and fire
You book the 3rd session at a time to suit you, to come back to decorate and glaze! You can experiment with underglaze techniques and have access to our range of crystal glazes and artisan glazes.
The course is great value, giving you a broad experience of ceramic techniques, at just £85 for the three sessions including all materials and firing!
