Learn to throw on the potter's wheel taught by Steve Tootell at Apple Tree Studios Denbigh. Steve has recently returned from Japan after 35 years studying and teaching ceramics and brings many innovative and unique techniques to share from this experience. Steve has taught all ages and abilities from 3 to 93 and has a structured approach that is both fun, intuitive and guarantees success! Apple Tree also offers 8 pottery packages to make at home or at your residence with online 30 minute tutorials to follow. Steve offers vouchers for all the different pottery experiences. Use the opportunity to explore the historic town of Denbigh. The teaching studio is situated next to the River Ystrad with great walks in the Welsh hills starting from the front gate!


The day is broken into 2 x 2.5 hour sessions with and hour break for lunch (bring a picnic lunch or visit a local hostelry or restaurant e.g. it is a 6 minute walk to the Brookhouse Mill restaurant). You can choose a half day or full day or series of successive days. Depending on how long you select, Steve will guide through the throwing, trimming and decorating process using unique techniques that he developed in Japan for example photo silk screen printing onto clay and the chattering trimming technique that has become his trademark. If the wheel is too arduous then you may choose to make one of a variety of hand built projects that are on offer. An evening session staring at 6:00 could also be offered.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Charity fundraising
  • Corporates
