Make a Christmas Incense Holder at Kiln Workshop

Join Pottymouth ceramicists Meredith Mason and Naomi Stokes at the renowned Kiln Workshop just off Gloucester Road, to make your own delightful festive incense holder.

Using the Japanese technique of Kurinuki, you'll make a pottery Christmas cottage. Kurinuki translates from Japanese to 'hollow’ and is a traditional technique used to make pottery from carving a single block of clay. Hollowing out clay in this way is considered a meditative process that produces truly one-of-a-kind ceramics.

Following step-by-step guidance, explore this traditional Japanese technique to create your own unique Christmas decoration, that can be brought out year after year.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. You're encouraged to come along with an open mind and playfulness to really make the most of this unique approach to making.

This crafty experience is the perfect opportunity to get together with friends, family and co-workers this festive season. You'll come away feeling festive, having learned a new skill, and with a beautiful artisanal ornament for your home!

Your finished item will be left with your hosts who will fire and glaze your work, ready for collection 2-4 weeks after.
