Family Workshops

Our Family Workshops are back!

We’ll be running Family Workshops every Friday from 10am – 12pm during local holiday times with a different project each week. Children aged 10 + are welcome to come on their own or parents can join in with the activity too. These workshops are suitable for all ages, kids age 9 and under require an adult helper to stay for the session.

We’ll be using a couple of traditional techniques every week to help bring your projects to life. Families who come for multiple workshops can expand their clay knowledge and use previous techniques to develop their projects into creative masterpieces!

Each session will be 2 hours and include all materials, tuition and use of tools, equipment, glazing and firing of one project.

If you have an idea for a project you would like to do, please email us at with details of the project. Check our Facebook and Instagram for details of upcoming Family Workshops – @tarkapottery
