Due to the popularity of Lee & Kathy’s pottery courses, in addition to our normal 1/2 and 1 day courses, we are also now offering week courses on:
A Beginners’ Guide to Pottery Throwing
This will cover predominantly throwing (bowls, cylinders, enclosed shapes) but also turning, decorating and applying handles/lids, The throwing techniques include centreing, opening up and pulling up. The emphasis is on learning rather than creating lots of finishedpots.
It is suitable for complete beginners and those who’ve done a little in the past but not had time to focus or practice sufficiently to acquire confidence/expertise.
The format will be 5 mornings of tuition & practice from 9:30 till 1pm Monday to Friday. The tutors Lee & Kathy have, between them, over 50 years of production craft pottery throwing and teaching – see some recent reviews & videos of our throwing techniques), The number of attendees will be kept very small to ensure plenty of time for individual tuition.
Long experience has taught us that learning to throw for 5 full days rather than 5 half days is too exhausting for most so we hope you’ll be pleased to hear that the pottery is located in beautiful countryside and in between the market towns of Kirkby Lonsdale, Hawes & Settle.
The cost of £200 also includes :
– 4 to 6 pots (dependent on weight) to be glazed & fired after the course – can be collected at a later date (or packed & posted for an additional charge).
– morning tea/coffee & biscuits
There is self-catering holiday cottage accommodation available adjacent to the pottery, alternatively there is a variety of cottages and B&Bs in the village of Ingleton 4 miles away.
Email or ring us with any questions. A £50 deposit is required to reserve your place. (The balance is due 4 weeks before the course start date.)
