Što ćete raditi

I run a fun 2 hour pottery wheel throwing experience for beginners who are wishing to explore the world of clay. I have five electric wheels. There are 4 available spaces per session, (5 by arrangement for a single group booking.) Suitable for children from age 12, unless you are a family and book all four spaces or click to make it a private group.

At the start of the session, I will show you how to prepare the clay for the wheel. We will form several balls of white earthenware clay ready to start.

I will then do a short demonstration of making a simple cylinder. Then help you to center your clay and guide you step by step to enable you to make your own pot on the wheel.

You will then have time to practice some more pots and even add some coloured slips if you wish.

At the end of the session you can choose your favourite pot for me to clear glaze and fire. The pots will go into the kiln twice and be ready for collection or posting around 5-6 weeks later.

Postage incurs an additional fee of £5 for a single pot or up to £10 for more than one pot up to 10kg if packaged in the same box. (UK prices)

Optional Extra: If you would like more than one of your pots, I can fire and glaze additional pots for a fee of £5 per pot to cover, materials, firings and technician time.

Payment for extra pots / postage is payable at the end of the session by cash or card
Other things to note
There is free parking on the street outside the studio for up to 3 hours with a parking disc. I have spare discs if you need one.

I am a self employed maker and pottery tutor. I have a degree in art and design along with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) I am slightly obsessed with clay and love sharing my passion with others. I have a small studio in Scarborough where I offer pottery wheel throwing experiences for beginners.
I am a mum to three teenagers, so life is pretty busy. For me, clay is the best way I have found to unwind and relax. Everyone can benefit from a little 'me time' from time to time and I believe having fun squishing some mud is about as good as it gets :)

I absolutely loved my pottery experience with Louisa. She was very warm and welcoming when I arrived which made me feel instantly comfortable as I was a bit nervous being in a new place, meeting new people and learning a new skill, but Louisa was so friendly and I really enjoyed getting to know her and her passion. Having a go on the pottery wheel was quite daunting at first but Louisa had a fun way of easing me into it, which I loved and I surprised myself with what I achieved! I was guided through the process really well and I just thoroughly enjoyed the experience as a whole - being on the wheel, trying something new, making my own pots (which is still sort of sinking in - I never really imagined doing pottery) and meeting Louisa who is down to earth and a great teacher. I left feeling inspired and eager to have another go! Whenever I am visiting the area again, I will be sure to pop in. Thanks again Louisa :-)

Being shown the basics enlivened our creativity and we were humbled by the unlimited potential and beauty from just a ball of clay. Louisa was kind, knowledgable and helpful. Would not miss this for all the clay in China.

I bought this experience as a gift for my parents. They absolutely loved it! They found Louisa to be lovely, very knowledgeable and welcoming. She made it very achievable for someone with zero experience of using a potter’s wheel and they were pleased with the pots they made. They recommended it very highly.

Absolutely amazing! Louisa is so so lovely and chatty and I had an amazing time! I’ve always wanted to have a go at pottery and I will definitely try and find somewhere close to home. Her studio is beautiful and homely. I was on my own and instantly felt at ease. Great location and easy to find - and there’s loads of parking outside. Just look out for the beautiful stained glass windows and you’re there!

My husband and I had a fab u lous experience with Louisa in her lovely studio. From the moment we met she was both welcoming and friendly. She is so knowledgeable and a very experienced potter. We have wanted to have a go at pottery for so long and wish we hadn’t left it as long as we have. We made three very good pots each after never using a wheel before. If you are thinking of this experience do not hesitate. It is the best.
