Ceramic Butter Dish Workshop

2 hrs 30 mins

This pottery hand-building workshop will take you through different ceramics techniques in order to create your very own butter dish!

You will be shown different techniques to build your pieces and will be encouraged to take the shape and style in any direction you wish.

You will learn the basics of coiling and slab building and once you have built your dish you can further customise it with carvings, painting and sgraffito!

What to expect from this class:

  • Be taught hand-building techniques 
  • Add personal design touches as you go
  • Get plenty of tips and inspiration from your host
  • Choose to fill yours with personal details, from stamping your name onto it to carving details onto your finished piece!

This pottery workshop is the perfect way to get creative learning new skills. You'll be leaving with a lovely butter dish that you can use at home.

Your creations will be left for a week to be bisque-fired, glazed and fired again for one final time. This process takes between 4 - 6 weeks. Your host will email you when your pieces are ready to collect.

Age restrictions: 16+

Adult £36

COVID-19 guidelines

Unfortunately, I will no longer be accepting last minute cancellations or rescheduling due to covid related issues as Government regulations have been dropped in regards to covid.

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.
