Make a Nature-Inspired Ceramic Platter

Make a ceramic centrepiece that will take pride of place at a dinner party, drinks gathering, garden BBQ, or evening soirée!

This pottery-making workshop combines a ceramics class with foraging so that you can create a unique platter that both the perfect home decor and a functional dinnerwear piece.

You'll visit the pottery studio's nearby nature reserve in Corsham to forage for interesting grasses and leaves to imprint your clay or use as stensils or inspiration. This workshop uses wooden press moulds to create your finished platter, so this is a brilliant pottery workshop for beginners!

This ceramics studio uses sustainable pottery methods including 'eco firing' to finish off your ceramics.

Ever wanted to make your own ceramic dinnerwear set? This experience is the perfect place to start!

What to expect:

  • Make your own platter from scratch with Jane Scott Ceramics
  • Learn how to decorate the background colour with coloured slip
  • Forage in the nearby nature reserve with your host
  • Use natural elements to decorate and texturise your pottery piece
  • Have your pottery 'eco fired' (using 50% less electricity than traditional firing)
  • Collect your nature-inspired platter two weeks later

After this experience, you'll have a lovely platter that captures a special memory in clay forever.
