Pottery throwing, handbuilding and firing

Alex Allpress Pottery School, Mid Wales.
I offer pottery skills workshops (half-day and full-day) and courses (long evening courses and short day courses), both at my studio in Newbridge-on-Wye and off-site. In addition, I offer team building workshop days, breakout options for conferences, pottery parties and art therapy clay workshops. I work with all ages and skills, from 4 years up. Choose from half day throwing / half day mixed theories hand building and throwing, or I can design a bespoke option for a whole day designed around you/your group and your needs. Clay and glazes are usually included, but firing is extra (£30.00 a kiln firing); for large groups there may be extra clay usage and charges, but everything will be invoiced up front. Half days are 10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm; full days are 10am-5pm with an hour for lunch, plus small breaks when required. Refreshments are thrown in. Available throughout the year (closed for Christmas, 24-27 December).
