Changes to Pottery Wheel class age restrictions

Pottery wheel classes are now only offered for children 10 years and over. This decision has been made as younger children are not able to evenly moderate the pressure on the pedal which causes excessive wear and tear being placed on the motors. Consequently we have had to undertake many unscheduled repairs on the wheels. We know this will disappoint many children, however our handbuilding classes are also lots of fun.
