We welcome enquiries for new 10 week terms. Our Autumn 2020 term is already full, but if you are interested in enquiring for the Spring and Summer terms 2021, which begin in January and April 2021, please forward your details via the booking page and we will add you to our reserve lists.

Evening classes at Wobage run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, between 6.45 and 9.15pm, for two or three 10 week blocks per annum. These termly courses, predominantly in thrown ceramics are suitable for intermediate and advanced makers. Usually we warmly welcome wheel-throwing Beginners to attend our evening classes. However, in the context of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and current government regulations and guidelines, regrettably we are presently unable to teach Beginners. 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 wheel-thrown work, along with other related skills such as clay preparation, turning, handling, slip-decoration and raw-glazing.

On Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 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 10 evenings and a wood-firing which takes place on a pre-planned Saturday. The throwing studio is open on the Saturday for student’s to pot, inbetween their kiln stoking shifts.

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

Reservations for a 10 week term are made with a £50 deposit, the remaining balance of £170 (Monday/Wednesday) or £214 (Tuesday/Thursday) is payable on the first evening 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 £4.00lb. Once you have joined a course, students are offered priority of place for the following term should they wish to continue.
