SIMPLY POTTY is a chance for people to 'play with clay'. You can throw pots on the wheel and learn different hand clay techniques. To create something from nothing is an incredible experience and extremely rewarding!!
Simply Potty is a small, friendly pottery studio based at Sarah's home in Wantage, Oxfordshire, offering pottery courses and lessons for all ages.
Sarah has worked with ceramics for several years and started Simply Potty to provide opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to learn pottery techniques and develop their interest in a relaxed, fun environment.
So if you'd like to learn to throw pots on the wheel, get creative with a range of hand clay techniques, and create beautiful finished pieces using different paints and glazes, Simply Potty is the perfect opportunity for you to play with clay.
Whatever you choose to make, the process of firing and finishing is similar; each creation is left to dry and then put in the kiln for an initial bisque firing before being painted and glazed. They are then finished with a second hot firing to melt the glaze and fuse it to the clay.
You may choose to make bowls, vases, cups, plates, dishes or any other weird and wonderful object you wish to try - all your creations are yours to take home and enjoy!
In addition to learning a new skill, you'll have lots of fun and meet new friends with similar interests. So come and give it a go!
