Come and explore the hands-on fun of pottery and clay modelling!

Maddy will guide you through an introduction to pottery basics, supporting you to make your own piece of pottery art from air-dry clay.

You might like to make an engraved dish, a little pinch pot, a serpentine candle holder, personalised wall art…if you can think it, you can probably make it. Or at least have good fun giving it a go.

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with new skills and a handmade object to gift to a friend or adorn your home!

All materials included in this workshop – just come and have a wonderful time!


What will we cover?

In this fun, hands-on workshop you will learn how to:

  • Condition our clay
  • Work with air-dry clay to make objects
  • Design and shape clay
  • Stamp, emboss, engrave into clay
  • Attaching pieces of clay correctly for strength

What to bring?

All materials are covered in the ticket price. 

Have a think about what you might like to create, and also about how to transport this home. It can be really useful to bring along an empty tupperware container and shopping bag to transport your clay work home safely.
