Our classes are taught on a 1:1 basis, unless of course you are coming as a couple or as part of a group. They are relaxed, fun & informal. All are suitable for beginners, but can also be adapted for more advanced potters.
The hand building session's must be booked in advance, and take around 2-3 hours,unless otherwise stated. However you can take as long as you need to make your creation.
We use Earthenware & Stone Ware Clay's that are fired in the kiln.
You may already have experience and wish go it alone or you may just want to have a ball of clay & experiment alone(in this case you can just turn up on the day).
Any creations made can be fired, simply leave them us for aprox two weeks, once dry & fired you can return to paint them in the studio. (fire & paint fee £3.50 per item, unless otherwise stated)
Alternively you can take your pieces home with you to air dry.
Dont forget, all our classes are available as gift Vouchers-they make fabulous presents
choose from. . .
