pottery beginners classes

pottenbakker aan de draaischijf

Pottery; it looks so easy and it seems so wonderful to do! Well, it isn't really easy, but you can learn it and it certainly is fun!

Hoeboer Pottery offers a structured lesson program, in which the basic skills of pottery are treated step by step. There is a lot of practice, both directly on the wheel and 'from the hump'. The finishing is also treated, that is to say finishing the bottom, the decoration and simple glazing.

beginners course

This is a beginner's course, no previous experience is required. At the end of the course you will be able to make, decorate and 'turn' bowls. You can progress to the 'semi-advanced' course.

Courses start every six months in September and January. A beginners course consists of 14 lessons. There is no class for a week during the spring and autumn holidays. The complete range of courses can be found below on the registration form.

A beginners course costs €312. Tuition includes materials, glaze, tools and heating costs. A group normally consists of a maximum of ten students.

We teach at two locations, which are about 250 meters apart. In 'De Hobbit', at Joseph Ledelstraat 52 in The Hague and in our original place at Suezkade 1. Time and location of the course are clearly stated on the invoice.

We try to keep this form up-to-date, but it is possible that a chosen course is already full. Please tick several options, or provide alternative dates under 'remarks'. Classes begin the week of September 5-9, 2022.

missed classes:
Missed classes cannot be made up for. Before you register, consider whether you will be able to attend the classes on the chosen day and time. Are you going to miss more then one class? Consider joining us at a later moment, or choose another day and time. Will you miss the first lessons due to vacation? Then rather skip a course and join next time!

summer week 2022

If you want to fully immerse yourself in pottery, this summer week is ideal. You can get to work every morning for a week. Either as a beginner who wants to master the basics of pottery in a short time. Or as an advanced student, who wants to delve into a subject under the supervision of a teacher. This can be your own learning goal, but a subject is also suggested and elaborated by the teacher.

There are two weeks planned for the time being, with sufficient interest there could be more.

summer week A: 11 to 15 July daily 9:30-13:00
summer week B: 18 to 22 July daily 9:30-13:00

The summer week costs €280. Tuition includes materials, glaze, tools and max. 2.5 kg heating costs. A group normally consists of a maximum of ten students.

This course takes place at our new location in the "Hobbit", at Joseph Ledelstraat 52. Time and location of the course will be clearly stated on the invoice.
