Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

To ensure we can offer all our learners the best experience, numbers on this course have been capped at a maximum of six learners.

We have three wheels available so learners will be split into two groups. Each group will equally share their time on the wheels.

Our prices are inclusive of materials and the firing in the kiln.

All completed work will be fired at a later date. Once fired, we will arrange a date with you to come and collect your pieces.

What can I do after this course?
