What you'll do

What better way to get stuck into pottery? Get creative and enjoy a tipple as you learn a little bit about ceramics and make your very own mug.

This workshop is suitable for ceramic beginners, or anyone who has briefly experimented with clay and wants to give it another go!

Once you finish your gorgeous mug you can get stuck into painting them with a range of different coloured slips! They will then be left to dry for a week, after which they will be bisque fired, glazed and fired again. Pieces are usually ready to collect between 4 - 6 weeks after creation. These beauties will definitely be worth the wait!

All pieces made are dishwasher safe.

COVID-19 guidelines

My priority is to keep customers and myself safe. I ask that everyone attending any of the classes adheres to the current government guidelines. If you are unwell or have any symptoms of coronavirus, or have come into contact with anyone who has developed symptoms - please stay home and notify me via email immediately.

On the day

Wear clothes that you don't mind getting a bit mucky! Nothing we work with stains, but it can be a bit messy.

I recommend cutting/filing your nails as it can get a little fiddly and difficult with long nails.
