Team Day – Pottery Throwdown!

Team Day – Pottery Throwdown!

May 20, 2024


On Thursday 16th May we attended a Pottery course with Trevor Lillistone Ceramics at his pottery studio at Bath Artists’ Studios. The session was for complete beginners and aimed to teach us the basic fundamentals for ‘throwing’ (spoiler alert: you don’t actually ‘throw’ the clay anywhere!)

As you can see from the pictures, it’s a lot harder than it looks! Trying to ‘center’ the clay was something that we all struggled with, as was the process of trying to pull the clay up to make it taller. However, despite a few fails (and a lot of mess!), we all managed to create 3 pieces that resembled a proper piece of pottery. Hurrah! We will update you on the finished articles when they are glazed and fired and ready for collection. Watch this space!

Many thanks to Trevor for his patience and positivity! It was a great Team Day.
