Going the ‘Course’: Beginners’ Hand-building

Date: Wednesday, May 1, 2024
Ends: Wednesday, May 29, 2024
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Duration: 4 weeks
Venue: The Courthouse
All materials are provided. Just bring lots of enthusiasm – and perhaps an apron as clay work can be messy!

Have you recently watched ‘The Great Pottery Throwdown’ and thought ‘I could have a go at that’? Well, you’re in the right place!

Join resident potter Kate Redding for a fun and unforgettable ‘Intro to Ceramics. We will cover hand-building techniques including pinch pots, slab building, tiles and coil pots. Ceramics is a very forgiving art form that is suitable for anyone, so why not give it a go!

There will be NO SESSION on Wednesday 15th May.

Suitable For: All abilities.

Other Info:

  • Please allow up to ~4 weeks for your ceramics to be fired.
  • When booking ensure that you give us your correct contact details so we are able to let you know when your work is ready for collection.
  • A pre-order form will be available at each session should you wish to buy lunch in our cafe after your workshop.
