Pottery Date Night at Wiper & True Barrel Store

Join ceramicists Naomi Stokes and Meredith Mason at Bristol's award-winning brewery, Wiper and True Barrel Store, in St Werburghs 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.

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.

Enjoy a drink from Bristol's intimate neighbourhood bar as you get creative in this midweek evening activity, taking in the vibrant atmosphere in the original Wiper and True brewery. What will you choose? Kaleidoscope Pale Ale or maybe Tomorrow?

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.

Adult (18+) £35
