Bring along your favourite person and make a beautiful piece of pottery from start to finish! At the start of the workshop you'll be given a quick demonstration so you know roughly what you're doing. You'll then each have an hour on your professional pottery wheel, to practise throwing, and forming your masterpiece

We'll then dry your pot slightly with a blow torch (!?) and get to decorating!

 

During a joint pottery lesson, the emphasis is placed on each of you creating a lovely piece of pottery. You'll also learn the basic skills needed to make a little pot on the potter's wheel.  Your pots will need 6 - 8 weeks to be fired and glazed, after that, your two pots will be posted out to you!

The Throwdown just got better! Now with two full size pottery wheels, this workshop has just become more intense. 

The workshop will start with a short demonstration so you know roughly what you're doing. You'll then each jump onto a wheel and be taught how to create a tall vessel, like a vase, and a small vessel, like a bowl.  You're going to learn everything you need to to throw a ball of clay into a functional piece of pottery!

During the final half hour of The Throwdown, you'll each be given a whopping 2kg of clay to compete to see who can complete the best piece!

 

You'll only be able to ask for help three times while you compete so make sure you're focusing during your training. Who's ever lump of clay looks the most like a pot at the end of the 30 minutes, is crowned the winner! 

You'll each get to keep your favourite piece. The winner will win everlasting bragging rights and can choose to keep an extra pot!

 

It takes 6 - 8 weeks for your pots to be completed, so I'll post all three out to you once they're ready to go to there forever home.

THIS WORKSHOP IS VERY INTENSE!  IT'S THE MOST FUN YOU'LL HAVE IN YEARS BUT BE READY TO GET VERY MESSY.

We had a lovely and enjoyable morning with Isobel throwing our first pots. Really good fun and relaxing, particularly with the Mongolian throat warbling music as accompaniment!... Thanks! :)

Wonderful time spent together here, hands immediately on the clay and expertly guided to create bowls from our first sitting. Excellent fun, a joyful experience complemented by free flowing tea, music and dogs! Perfect vibe.
Thank you for sharing your studio and art practice with us.

Had an amazing time with Isobel at Sanity studios doing a throw down with my husband Peter. She’s a great teacher and made it a really fun experience. We had a fab time and brought some extra pots/bowls we made. Obviously I won the throw down due to her great teaching skills. Would recommend to anyone who wants to do something different and have a giggle! Would love to go back. 😁😁😁 Thank you 😊!

F.A.Qs

What should i wear?

Anything you like! You're more than likely going to get a fair amount of clay over your clothes. I will however, provide you with an apron. Don't worry about any clay on your clothes, simply pop your item in the wash and they'll come out just like new

Is there parking?

Unfortunately there isn't parking out side the studio. If you're planning to come to your pottery lesson by car, the nearest free parking is mid-way up Warminster Road. 

How about jewellery?

You're not going to want to wear any rings or bracelets during your lesson. It's also a good idea to make sure your nails are reletivly short.  

How do i pay?

You can either pay for your class online when you book it or, you can pay by cash or card after your class.
