Pottery Classes and Workshops
Classes and courses
Thank you for your continued support. Lou and I have been having a think and we're planning new and exciting classes and courses for the new year. We will still be running the favourites like the Pottery Taster ( vouchers available in the shop) and we will also be offering some new one off classes and special workshops. Watch this space for news and updates. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Clayhouse as soon as we are allowed.
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 such as slab work and coiling and you will make a pot which can be fired after it has dried. We will glaze your pot which can then be collected approximately 3 weeks after the class. Cost £35 which includes all materials, firing and glazing.
If you've been before and would like to do something different let me know.
New for 2021
If you've been on a pottery taster and you had fun why not come for a follow up session and learn something new. I'll be announcing details of these sessions in the new year.
Vouchers are available in the shop
