Hey Clay! (Saturday 24th March)

The Courthouse Thirsk
Saturday 24th March


Hey Clay is an event day that everyone goes 'potty' for at The Courthouse and is part of the GET CREATIVE Week Festival running between Saturday 17th March - Saturday 25th March.

Throughout the event, you will have the chance to meet local potters, watch a variety of clay demonstrations and try your hand at making your own ceramic items. 

Please note: All ceramics created in the workshops can either be taken home on the day unfired or fired in our kiln and available for collection 2-3 weeks afterwards. Please ensure that the correct contact details are given when booking so we are able to contact you when the work is ready for collection

The event day is FREE of charge, however, we charge a small fee to cover the cost of materials.

Workshops are suitable for ages 5+ and all under 8's must be accompanied by an adult. 


Up to 2 Workshops (1/2 Day, either morning or afternoon) are £5

Up to 4 Workshops (Full Day 10am - 4pm) are £10
