Det skal I lave

Upon arrival we’ll run through the basics before demonstrating pottery throwing on the wheel to make a small Pot. It’s then over to you to ‘throw’ your own small pot (or two, time permitting).
Choose one pot to decorate with small clay shapes/stamps using the tools provided. (Additional pots can be decorated and kiln fired at a cost of £5 per extra pot)

Your creations will need to be left with us for drying and kiln firing. We can glaze in one solid colour before kiln firing or leave unglazed so that you can decorate at home with your own acrylic paints and varnish.

Your pot/s can be collected 3-4 weeks from the date of your experience or we can post for a small additional cost.

Allow up to 1hr 30mins in total for this experience.

This session is a fun ‘taster’ pottery throwing for those who have never tried a potter’s wheel and always fancied ‘having a go’.

Aprons are provided but we recommend wearing clothes you won’t mind getting a little messy.

Please message if you require availability for a date not shown, or haa larger group.

Other things to note:

We are a just few minutes walk from bus stops at Chilcotte memorial with buses serving Dawlish, Shaldon, Teignmouth, Torquay Harbour, Paignton, Brixham and pay and display car parks at Chilcotte Close and Hampton Avenue.

Tracy and Steve host pottery wheel experiences from their garden pottery studio in St Marychurch, Torquay. Steve first tried the potters wheel a few years ago and soon became addicted! He ‘throws’ many pots and vessels alongside hosting the taster experiences.

Tracy is a self taught ceramicist and has worked with many groups and individuals delivering fun, educational clay workshops and offers both hand building with clay opportunities and pottery wheel taster sessions.

Regardless of whether it’s Steve or Tracy hosting all of the workshops are fun, friendly and suitable for all ages and abilities.

When not hosting workshops Tracy and Steve sell their unique hand crafted ceramics through online sites and local craft fairs.

We had the best time making our crockery. Such a welcoming, hard working family who helped us every step of the way! We definitely appreciated getting more than one try at making the perfect bowl:) such talented and creative people! Will definitely come again soon

Myself and my partner were in Devon for a week and looked for indoor activities due to the rainy weather, this pottery making experience came up as a recommended activity and at £35pp we thought why not! It did not disappoint, from the moment Steve met us as the door to the moment we left, the experience was full of conversation and plenty of pottery knowledge, being only myself and my partner in the class it was very personal experience and we got to spend plenty of time making pots and learning. I would highly recommend this for couples looking for something different to do while in Devon. Big thank you to Tracy and Steve :)

The pottery class was so much fun, the address was easy to find via google maps and Tracy gave us her number so we could call when we arrived as it was a residential address & the shed was at the back of the garden. Steve ran the class, he was very knowledgeable and helpful as we were all novices and made the experience really fun, we all learnt a lot. Looking forward to seeing our final fired pots!

We had a lovely afternoon throwing clay and making pots in a lovely intimate setting with an other couple. Tracy was a wonderful teacher and helped us all with your creations!
