Wat je gaat doen

A fun 90 minute pottery wheel taster experience aimed at beginners who wish to learn the basics of throwing a simple pot or two on the wheel.

You'll have a dedicated wheel for the duration of the session. There are up to 4 available spaces. Suitable for children from age 12, unless it's a family group booking when little ones are very welcome too. My mini table top wheel is perfect for little hands. The studio is quite cosy and regrettably there is not enough space for spectators.

After a warm welcome with a short demo making a cylinder, I'll help you center your clay and take you through the steps to make your own pot on the wheel.

You'll then have time to practise some more pots and even add some coloured slips if you wish.

At the end of the session you can choose your favourite pot for me to clear glaze and fire. The pots will go into the kiln twice and be ready for collection or posting around 5-6 weeks later.

Postage incurs an additional fee of £5 for a single pot or up to £10 for several (up to 10kg) if packaged in the same box. (UK prices)

Optional Extra: If you would like more than one of your pots, I can fire and glaze additional pots for a fee of £5 per pot to cover costs. Payment for extra pots/postage is paid at the end of the session by cash/card.

I am a self employed maker and pottery tutor. I have a degree in art and design along with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) I am slightly obsessed with clay and love sharing my passion with others. I have a small studio in Scarborough where I offer pottery wheel throwing experiences for beginners.
Life is pretty busy and for me, clay is the best way I have found to unwind and relax. Everyone can benefit from a little 'me time' from time to time and I believe having fun squishing some mud is about as good as it gets :)

Waar je naartoe gaat

The session will be held in my teaching studio at 133 Dean Road in Scarborough. It used to be a corner shop many years ago and now is the perfect making space. I have a studio onsite in the basement where I make items to sell and where I enjoy this wonderful hobby.

Much better than expected. Louisa was a great instructor and made us feel at ease. We were both so pleased with our creations that we each kept the pot and bowl we made and recommend you have a go.

Booked this experience on a trip to York. It was for 3 of us and Louisa made us very welcome and provided us with drinks and a parking ticket. We were able to park right out side the studio. Louisa is a talented teacher and supportive all the way through our session as we were complete novices. We made three items on the wheel from scratch with Louisa’s guidance and support. It was very very relaxing and super fun we are still talking about it now and are inspired to want to do it again. You can also purchase one if Louisa’s creations as a keep sake as well as extra of your own creations. Definitely a must do experience that you will totally enjoy. Thank you Louisa for a lovely morning.

What a wonderful introduction to pottery. I had expectations of things going really pear shaped on the wheel but because Louisa was so thoughtful, focused and skilled at heading off disasters, everything was wonderful. Louisa made you feel enabled and though much of the success was because her careful tuition and assistance I came away feeling quite proud of myself. Great value for money and I would thoroughly recommend this uplifting experience!
