Beginners Pottery Tools for the Wheel
During my time as a potter I've written blog posts to help people who are getting started in the craft. I often get questions about which tools you need when starting out. There are so many options it can be very confusing for people with no experience.
I was a beginner not too long ago and ended up buying quite a few things I don't really need. I've decided to put together the ideal tool set for beginners looking to get started on the pottery wheel.
These are basic tools but can be used to make a wide variety of pots to a good standard. After all the most important tools are your hands!
- throwing stick
- 3 x chamois leather
- curved wooden rib
- sponge on a stick
- metal needle tool
- curved trim tool
- double ended carving tool
- cutoff wire
- stick gauge
- 30 cm / 12" metal ruler
- fettling knife
- metal rib
If they are shown as 'In Stock' the tools can be dispatched within a few days of ordering. If they are shown as 'made to order' they will be dispatched as soon as I have received the various supplies. This is usually much quicker than the estimate shown, typically within two weeks. I offer worldwide shipping on all my products.
