Make a Mug at Wiper and True Tap Room

Come and make your very own handcrafted mug with Pottymouth Workshop!

Join ceramicists Naomi Stokes and Meredith Mason at Bristol's award-winning brewery, Wiper and True, in Old Market for a fun workshop of pottery and a pint!

You'll be guided step-by-step through the process of making your own slab-built ceramic mug. You don't need any previous clay experience as everything will be fully explained on the day.

What to expect:

  • Learn the fundamentals of slab building pottery
  • Make your own clay beer mug with the help of professional ceramicists
  • Enjoy a drink from Wiper and True's taproom
  • Collect your mugs 2-4 weeks later after they've been fired and glazed

Enjoy a drink from Bristol's award-winning brewery with the freshest pints being brewed just meters from your table. What will you choose? Kaleidoscope Pale Ale or maybe Lucky Saint?

After a brief demonstration from your experts, you'll be left to flex your new skills! Practise the fundamentals of slab building: rolling out clay, slip and scoring, and decorative techniques to finish off with your personal and unique design.

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

After your experience, you are welcome to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and a plant-filled oasis beer garden. What's not to love about the Wiper and True Taproom?
