Què farem?

Your experience will be fun and informal yet informative and productive. You're definitely going to throw your own individual pot!
We start by familiarising ourselves with the studio, the equipment and tools we will use during your experience.
Then it's straight onto the wheel where you learn to centre the clay, and throw a pot. Once we have your pot formed we'll clean it up a bit and lift your creation from the wheel to dry. Then we'll do it again. Why not try another shape? You can throw as many pots as time allows.
For an extra payment at the end of your experience you get to choose your favourite piece and when it's bone dry aprox 3 weeks I'll fire it for you in the kiln for 2 days then sand it down, glaze it to be fired again to be packed off to your home (Postage & Packing is included in the small additional cost.)

I am a former professional surfer and surf coach turned potter. I think I enjoy working with clay as much as I did surfing around the world! Ceramics offers infinite possibilities, infinite combinations of form, clay and glaze and it's this journey of discovery that makes every day in the studio such an adventure. I look forward to sharing all this with you.

A great experience. This was our first time working with clay and we managed to produce something that actually looked like a pot/bowl! Rob made everything so straightforward and the passion for his craft really elevates the experience. Would recommend to anyone!

I booked this in as a surprise for my partners birthday & she absolutely loved it! It was our first time throwing a pot and it was so much fun, Rob was fantastic at explaining everything and was extremely attentive, assisting as we went along. Cheers Rob, we’ll be back soon with some friends 👍

What a fantastic day throwing clay. Rob absolutely oozes passion for his craft and it’s somewhat impossible for that passion not to be passed onto us. He was cool, humorous, fun and taught us at a pace that catered for our experience (absolutely none!) 2 hours flew in the blink of an eye and I even managed to create something that looked remotely like a bowl. Lovely day, highly recommend and the class even comes with as many strokes of the family pooch for free!

Highly recommend this experience. Entertaining and informative, Rob turned us all into potters in an easy relaxed environment with a finished pot (or three) to be proud of.

When booking this experience I was only expecting to have a go at making a clay pot on a wheel, but Rob’s character and humour made the whole experience really entertaining and engaging and a whole lot of fun. Our 9 year old daughter didn’t really get into the pot making as much but was allowed to play with the clay and make other things while my partner and I had a go at making cups and bowls. The studio is at Robs home and it’s a beautiful place with easy street parking at the front. We were met in person by Rob and had a fabulous experience from getting of the car until the very end. Would definitely recommend, and I can’t wait to see our final fired and glazed pots in a few weeks.

Brilliant chance to get to do some pottery by the sea. No need for experience, Rob will walk you through the whole process with ease. You can also buy your pots so they're sent to you after! Definitely worth a try
