We welcome enquiries for new 10 week terms. Our Autumn Term 2022 already has a reserve list, but if you are interested in enquiring for the next Spring term, which begin in January 2023, please forward your details via the booking page and we will add you to our reserve lists.

Regular classes at Wobage run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 6.45 – 9.15pm, and also on Thursday afternoons between 2.15 and 4.45pm, for two 9 or 10 week blocks per annum. These Spring and Autumn term courses, predominantly in wheel-thrown ceramics are suitable for makers of all levels of ability. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 9 students to ensure sufficient one to one tuition and a power-wheel for each participant. The focus of the classes is with the development of thrown work, along with other related skills such as clay preparation, turning, handling, slip-decoration and raw-glazing. Patia’s earthenware courses often also include some slab/mould pot-making.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Jeremy’s students make with stoneware, salt-slips and raw-glaze.  Students will be invited to make a selection of approximately a dozen of their best pots which they will wood-fire and salt-glaze. Each term consists of 9 or 10 evenings or afternoons, and a wood-firing which takes place on a pre-planned Saturday.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, Patia’s students make slip-decorated earthenware.

Reservations for each term are made with a £50 deposit, the remaining balance is payable on the first class of term. A charge will be made in addition to the course fee to cover the cost of fired pots. For wood-salt fired pots (Tues/Thurs) this is £4.50lb. Once you have joined a course, students are offered priority of place for the following term should they wish to continue.
