Information for beginners and new starters on the pottery classes and pottery workshops offered at Lark Lane Pottery Liverpool
Beginners Pottery Classes
We offer beginners to pottery ‘Starter-Blocks’ of either six, seven or eight weeks (fixed). We will guide you through techniques for making pots on the potters wheel and by hand-building using coils (you will either start with a couple of weeks on the wheel or a couple of weeks hand-building and will then rotate). We will also show you how to apply slips (liquid clays) and glazes.
The beginners Starter-Block sessions and the Members sessions are combined; there will be two of us on hand to teach up to four of you as new-starters and to give assistance to others in the session. We aim to teach you as many techniques as we can in your starter-block but we do not run things in a prescriptive way week by week. This way we can help you can find out what you enjoy doing and what you are good at.
Once you have completed a Starter-Block with us you will know the basics and you become a Member, enabling you to book onto any session; we will be happy to continue helping you as needed.
The Starter-Blocks commence on the first respective day of the month and are released on the calendar for booking on the first week of the preceding month. If you would like to start learning pottery with us, please read the cancellation policy, below.
