Course overview

The 6-week advanced pottery course is designed to enable learners to extend on their existing pottery skill and techniques. You will get individual support to develop your technical and creative skills in both hand built and wheel thrown forms. During this course you’ll study in our well-equipped studio and create work using potter’s wheels, have access to a glazing and kiln room, and a Raku kiln which will enable you to practice this unique firing technique. Our experienced tutors will provide individual support to help you develop and refine your hand-built and wheel-thrown creations. During the final week of the courses there is also the opportunity to take part in a short exhibition within a professional gallery space. This is a great opportunity for your friends and family to see the work you have created. To find out more about this course please email West Studios at
