Courses & Workshops


Workshops offer something a little different from the Taster Class. These sessions focus on more specialist techniques and set projects. If you are keen to learn more about ceramics, the Introduction to Ceramics Course will give you the opportunity to learn a broad range of pottery techniques and enable you to make your own designs. Your pottery will be fired and glazed for collection around 4-6 weeks later (or delivery for P&P costs). Suitable for all skill levels. Class sizes are small and friendly, and Imogen will be on hand to offer support throughout. Refreshments included.
