Pottery Taster Workshop

This is a 2 hour workshop where you can explore your creative side in a relaxed and friendly environment. Groups are small (up to 4) so plenty of one to one tuition. Come and play with clay and see if pottery is for you. In this session we will look at some hand building techniques and you will make a slab pot and a pinch pot which can be fired after they have dried. We will glaze your pots which can then be collected approximately 3 weeks after the class. Cost £40 which includes all materials, firing and glazing.
If you've been before and would like to do something different let me know. 
Please note there is no wheel throwing in this class.
