First be welcomed with a good Scottish tea and a small tour of the facilities available. Let me then talk you through some basics of technique and watch a demonstration of how to throw a pot. Including, centering, opening and wall building. At this point you can choose whether you would like to just have a go, or be talked through step by step. You can make one or two pots, I will make sure that you have something you are happy with. A talk will then be given on turning, glaze and firing. I will turn your pots bases for you the next day, and glaze and fire when dried. Or why not come again and glaze your pots when dried? I can post your pots on to you for a small extra postage fee, or you can collect them when ready. The focus will be on fun and experience, getting your hands messy and making something functional and beautiful to take home as a special memory.
Il tuo host
Join me in the heart of Scotland, in my hill top cottage to learn either the electric or push wheel. I am a passionate about pottery, I sleep and dream shapes and colours. I love people and love helping them find the method that suits them best to learn. I have excellent communication skills and will make you feel right at home. I have been teaching people in many different areas for years and I am happy to choose methods that work for you. My main aim is for people to have great fun and learn skills to let their creativity flourish.

Clay and tools will provided, along with an apron to protect clothes.
Dove ti troverai
Come and spend time in my off grid studio in a purpose built cabin on Dukes Pass. The studio is located beside my cottage, which is the last house standing of a small village which used to house slate quarry workers. Walks can be taken to view the old slate quarry. The house is located 2 minutes from the scenic three lochs drive, which offers beautiful view points and picnic stops.
