SKU: N/A Category:


This pottery class is an introduction to clay and ceramics, and runs on a Saturday morning.

The class will start with a demo of the techniques you’ll be using to create your own pottery. You’ll make a pot using soft slabs of clay, and learn how to apply surface decoration and pattern. Then try your hand at the potters wheel. Finish off your creations by painting with colourful underglazes.

  • Class sizes are small & welcoming with a maximum of six students per group, ensuring plenty of tuition. Classes are suitable for over 16s only.
  • Please dress for mess! Bring a small hand towel, and apron if you have one. Studio apron hire is £2. Short nails are also recommended.
  • Your pottery will be glazed and fired, ready for you to collect 6-8 weeks later (or delivery for P&P costs). See the pottery collection page for details.


The price (of £60) per person includes tuition, materials & kiln firing. You can expect to make two pieces of pottery to be fired.
