Make a Clay Coffee Cup at The Crafty Egg

Join Pottymouth Workshop at The Crafty Egg, Fishponds for a hands-on pottery session. Use the medium of clay to craft your very own artisanal coffee cup.

You'll be guided step-by-step through the process of making your own β€˜pinch pot’ ceramic coffee cup. You don't need any previous clay experience as everything will be explained fully on the day.

What to expect:

  • Learn the fundamentals of hand building pottery, using a pinching technique.
  • Make your own artisan coffee cup with the help of professional ceramicists.
  • Enjoy a freshly ground coffee, cocktail or pizza
  • Collect your cup 2-4 weeks later after they've been fired and glazed

After a brief demonstration from your experts, you'll be let loose to get a feel for the clay, practice your technique and finish off with some decorative techniques to define your design.

Your finished item will be left with your hosts who will fire and glaze your work. You will be contacted to collect your cups from your host within 2-4 weeks.
