What's Included

Learn the ancient pottery-making technique of hand building with clay which involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools!  You will learn how to build with clay using an appropriate technique depending on the piece you wish to make, all you need to take with you is an idea of a shape / item you would like to make.

Your experience will include:

  • Up to 2 and 1/2 hours of working with clay by hand ( you do not use a potter’s wheel)
  • Each person gets a piece of clay to create their own creation with approx. 1/2kg
  • Pre book your 2 hours Wednesday to Saturday
  • Guided session with Jane to help you create your piece
  • All safety equipment included
  • You may be able to paint your piece the same day ( depending on your creation) then it requires firing after drying out for two weeks, then glazing and firing again.
  • If you do not paint it on the creation day you return to paint it in two weeks after making it and then it will be dried, glazed and fired for you to collect a week later
