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.

I have always wanted to try my hand at pottery, so when I spotted Tracy's experience on Airbnb I couldn't wait to have a go. Tracy has a well equipped studio in her garden in St Marychurch. Parking was easy with a carpark right behind the house - always a bonus in this area. While David had previous experience of a pottery wheel, albeit 50 years ago, he took to again it like a duck to water leaving my attempts looking very amateurish by comparison. Thankfully Tracy is a first class tutor with even more patience than a saint so I wasn't left too far behind. I really cannot recommend Tracy highly enough, if you'd like to try something new or hone your already brilliant pottery skills, this is 1.5 hours very well spent. You won't be disappointed.

We really enjoyed our time with Tracy. During the experience we could create three bowls, one of which she kindly offered to kiln dry and ship to us. She explained everything in detail and answered questions, but also left some space for individual exploration. Only wished it lasted longer!

Absolutely brilliant experience. I didn't expect to learn so much, or achieve so much. Tracey is a kind and knowledgeable teacher, and very friendly. I just really enjoyed my Pottery Wheel experience, and made 3 lovely dishes, so I'm thrilled. Highly recommend this experience.
