Pottery Workshop: 3 Day Intensive Throwing

Discover the art of pottery throwing with our 3-day intensive course at The Poly Pottery. Led by our head potter Karl Owen, you'll learn the fundamental techniques for creating basic cylinders and gradually progress to more complex forms.

Through hands-on practice and expert guidance, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of this craft and develop your skills to create unique and beautiful pottery pieces.

Please note that this workshop is physically demanding, requiring the use of various muscle groups such as lower back, wrist, finger, arm, and shoulder muscles.
