Introduction to Throwing (evening)

Featured Image


A fun introduction to throwing on the potters wheel.

Wednesday 7th August, 6-9pm

We will cover preparing your clay, centring, raising the walls, taking your pots off the wheel without squishing them as well as dealing with wobbles. At the end you can choose up to 3 pieces to be fired and glazed, ready for collection at a later date. With a small group of only 4 people per session, each person will work on their own wheel and will be guided through making pottery on the wheel using stoneware clay.


Taught by Gillian from Gillybean Pottery. Gillian is a Belfast based potter who is originally from Galway and takes lots of her inspiration from her west coast home place. Gillian fell in love with pottery when she was knee high, and after school, Gillian followed another career path and dipped in and out with her pottery hobby as and when she could but her underlying longing to work with clay as more than a hobbyist remained strong. In 2019 she took the first steps to her pottery career and worked part time as a classroom assistant while setting up in her garden shed, in 2023 she became a full time potter.
