Free Style Practice Session Hand-Building (experienced potters only) Summer Term


Cost – £35 per person

Practice will be essential for the development of your pottery. These sessions allow for just that, giving you the opportunity to practice and hone your skills and personal style at your own pace

Practice sessions are available to students who have completed a 6 week course at Wanstead Pottery, or to proficient potters who would simply like the opportunity to practice. Please note, these sessions are NOT suitable for beginners as they are untaught, although I will be on hand to give advice, if required.

If you intend to work on a piece over a number of weeks then it is advised that your subsequent sessions are booked in advance, and ideally within two weeks of the first. This is because your work cannot be stored indefinitely for you in a leather-hard state and because studio storage space is limited

Clay will be provided and charged at £5 per kilo to be fired, as an example, an average sized mug might cost approximately £1. You will have access to the select range of studio dipping glazes for work to be glazed

All pots created during these sessions must be made using the studio clay provided. Only pots produced in the studio may be fired in the studio

Please be aware that due to size restrictions of the kiln, there will be a limit to the size of the pieces that can be fired
