  • All tools and materials will be provided

  • The glazing and firing of 1 piece of your choice is included

  • 2-hour workshop

  • Small group of 6 people

Enjoyed pottery painting? Why not challenge yourself further? Join us for an immersive pottery workshop that will guide you through the steps of throwing a piece on the potter’s wheel. In the first part, we will delve into some essential theory while learning to prepare our clay. After a detailed demonstration, you will then have the opportunity to craft your own unique pots. This session is tailored for beginners – whether you are looking for a date night idea, gifting an experience, planning a special occasion, or organizing a team event!

Pottery making can get messy, so we recommend trimming long nails and tying long hair back to ensure nothing gets in the way of your creative expression. Towards the end of the session, you’ll have the chance to select your favourite piece for glazing and firing, a process that typically takes around 8 weeks. Additional pots can be fired at a charge of £10 each.

Cost: £60 per person
