Workshops & Lessons

Master the wheel

Come and immerse yourself in the art of pottery making through our range of intimate workshops suitable for all levels. Choose between a 3-hour wheel throwing session for beginners looking to master the basics of crafting mugs, attaching handles and shaping vases. More experienced potters can opt for the full-day workshop to create three pieces from start to finish, including a mug, vase and bowl. For those ready to progress beyond cylinders and bowls, our intermediate offering focuses on closed forms, galleries and lidded pieces. No matter your skill level, our workshops are limited to just three participants and feature plenty of hands-on practice with personalized guidance. The workshop fee covers firing and glazing for your creations. Once complete, we’ll contact you for collection or can arrange delivery if preferred.

If the workshops below don’t meet your needs, please reach out via email. We’ll do our best to assist you and see if there’s a way we can tailor our offerings to better suit your requirements. You can contact us at woburnsandsclay@gmail.com

Testimonials

My day at Woburn Sands Clay was wonderful.

Peter helped me throughout the 6-hour session and I produced a bowl, mug & jug, which was nearly all my own work!

A very enjoyable birthday present.

Peter was very patient with me and my boyfriend as we had not done pottery before. The class was very fun and we’re super pleased with the pieces we created. Peter and Gill were welcoming and friendly which made for a very enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend this class.

What a brilliant afternoon spent with Peter in his pottery studio. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and can’t wait to collect our handmade pottery. Peter was an excellent teacher and very patient. I can’t wait to return. Highly recommend.
