Handbuilding Pottery Course

ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS - 6 weeks pottery hand building course.

‘I enjoyed the hedgerow vase workshop so much that I signed up for a 6 week hand building beginners course. Its allowed me to express my ideas’ 

‘Cara was so supportive, enthusiastic, a calm and inspirational tutor, she helped me feel confident about my pieces, I don’t feel I’m creative but Cara has helped me realise I am’

‘I enjoyed the calmness of the workshop, so laid back its a great environment to learn new skills, I intend to start another course’  

By providing the learning in a home studio environment I create a relaxed and informal approach to learning and exploring your creativity. 

All my classes are purely for hand building, using techniques such as coiling, pinching, slab and moulds. 


Over 6 weeks you will learn the basic skills from making, decorating to firing. You will leave the course with some lovely creations handmade by you and a new set of skills. 

You can purchase a set of 6 weeks from my web shop, or arrangements can be made to pay in instalments. Please make contact to discuss a suitable days/time for your sessions.  A 25% non refundable deposit will be required at booking in order to secure your place and order supplies in materials in for you. 


The courses are held in Treskerby, Redruth Cornwall.  


Continuing your learning: 

Many students will continue to with a further 6 week course to build on the skills they have developed, other will want to dip in and out of workshops/course sessions. Stay in touch will upcoming events through my newsletters.
