Pottery for Beginners

In this 2-hour pottery workshop you will be given the freedom to get messy, experience textures and get lost in the world of air-dry clay. You'll be shown how to build, shape, and mould beautifully rustic boho accessories for your home!

This type of clay is perfect for beginners as there is no need to dry it in a kiln, it will simply dry overnight.

This class is great for beginners, you will be taught the following basic skills:

  • Rolling coils
  • Pushing pottery forms
  • Patting slabs
  • Pinching for pinch pots
  • Scraping and slipping

All the materials to create beautiful decorative boho items for your home will be provided and you'll have step-by-step guidance and demonstrations so you can create perfect pots!

The first hour will be spent learning how to make your own boho style coil pot, a step by step demo will be given by the tutor so no need to worry if it is your first time handling clay! The second part of the workshop will be where you will be let loose to express your individual creativity, with help again from the tutor you can choose from a selection of examples using the tips and tricks you mastered in the first half of the session :).

There will also be teas, coffee and cake to fuel your creativity!
