Siramik Courses


Siramik’s aim is to create a fun and relaxing environment for participants to learn the skills of creating pots on the potter’s wheel that will give you a great sense of achievement. Expert guidance and tuition will help you to produce what you thought had not been possible. Beginners as well as more experienced participants will learn how to advance their skill to a higher level. In the relaxing setting of the spacious studio there are six potter’s wheels (electricity powered) and tools available for each individual.


Making a Pot

The weekend courses concentrate on the making of pots and you will notice quick improvements to your skills. Students are guided through the elementary process of preparing the clay, judging what the best consistency is and how to shape
hands and muscles to centre clay on the wheel. This will
lead them into producing their first pottery.


After this initial stage students will have one-to-one tuition to maximise their potential. On the second day, tasks will be set, and the students can produce a piece of work to their own choice. The students can then choose which of their products will be finished off (glazing and firing) at a later stage. This will be sent to them by post.


The weekend course will be from Friday evening till Sunday late afternoon and courses are on offer all year round. For partners who come for the weekend but do not take part in the course there will be a range of opportunities available. Historic sites, the Botanic Garden of Wales, leisure facilities, beach and physical activity centers are all within a 20 mile radius from us. The nearest town, Carmarthen, is a 15 minute drive away.
