Next spring we will be introducing pottery throwing courses at Waun Hir Pottery. These four day hands-on courses will teach the fundamentals of making stoneware pottery in the beautiful Brecon Beacons

Course Details

Nick will provide one-to-one expert tuition to a small group, and each day will be punctuated with home cooked food.

Provisional dates:
May 23rd to 26th 2013
June 20th to 23rd 2013
July 25th to 28th 2013

Small groups of up to 5 will each be provided with a professional electric wheel and unlimited top quality clay. Daily demonstrations will be followed by expert one-to-one tuition, and all levels of proficiency are welcome.

During the 4 days the emphasis will be on throwing the stoneware body that is used here on a daily basis at the pottery. The thrown pots will be turned and other making techniques such as handle extruding and press- moulding spouts will be covered by students who wish to do so.

The courses will concentrate on making only, as time limitations do not permit firing. However students may select pieces which they have made to be fired after their departure from the course. The fired pieces can then be collected or sent by courier at a later date.

Waun Hir Pottery is situated in a truly stunning part of Wales and as such is an inspiring place to work or learn. Students will be provided with a list of good places to stay locally or if they prefer for no extra charge, camping and shower facilities are available at the pottery.

Each day the making will be punctuated by morning and afternoon tea or coffee with home made cake. Lunch times will be delicious, home cooked food, all served up on the stoneware made at the pottery.

Cost for 4 full days 300. 75 deposit payable on booking.
