Before deciding if you might want to join one of the various Learning for Leisure courses on offer the TASTERS are the perfect way to dip your toes in to see if you like it!

Pottery is one of the subjects on offer at Leek college.

Sue Baker, Community Learning Coordinator said about the free offer:

“There’s lots of subjects to try, ranging from languages, floristry, art and pottery to cookery and guitar. The two-hour taster sessions are a great way of seeing if you enjoy a subject – and you may even find that you have a natural ability that you didn’t know about.
