Studio days


These two and half hour classes usually take place in the morning (10.00am to 12.30pm) and are scheduled according to demand and availability. Class sizes vary but to ensure individual tuition enrolment is limited to four students. Please ask regarding your requirements.

The focus of these hands on classes is to learn the skills necessary to throw pots on the potter’s wheel. Tuition is by demonstration and one to one support at an appropriate level dependent on student competence.

These bespoke sessions are popular with family groups, novices interested in a new challenge and experienced students who want to develop their skills.

Novices are given a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of working on the wheel and for students who can already throw an appraisal is made of their competence to ascertain how best to refine and advance their work.

From work made during the class pots are selected for glazing and firing and can be collected or despatched when finished.

For local people throwing classes can be repeated on a regular basis and for visitors offer the opportunity of a creative break while on holiday in Cornwall.


£50.00 plus a small materials charge for fired pots.

Please contact Ben Barker for further information and course dates.
