What is wheel throwing? 
In wheel throwing participants will learn how to work with clay on a revolving pottery wheel. An experienced tutor will provide participants with an introduction to clay, how to centre clay on the wheel and create small dishes and forms. Wheel throwing is one of our most popular activities. Whilst challenging, it provides a wonderful opportunity to learn a new skill and get your hands dirty!

What is hand building? 
In hand building participants will learn how to pinch and coil pots and forms, fundamental pottery techniques. Hand building is a more relaxed way of working with clay, which can create more 'natural' or asymmetrical work. 

Please note that Birthday parties are limited to 10 children and require at least two responsible adults (in addition to the tutor) to be present for the duration of the activity. No food or drink is permitted in the studio due to OH&S, however there is a park close by with a picnic table that is suitable for cake and celebrations after the class.

Works will be available for collection 2 – 3 weeks after the class, Northcote Pottery will contact the customer by email when the works are ready.
