We've been invited by Devon Pop Ups to host 15 minute potter’s wheel taster sessions at the above event at Barnstaple Pannier Market.

You'll be shown how to centre and throw on a proper potter's wheel with one-to-one help from Jax Williams or one of the Tarka Pottery team.  We’ll help you to centre a ball of clay and explain how you can control the clay to create your own bowl or cylinder by using your fingers and hands.
