Family Workshops

family workshops

Family Fun Workshops, Fridays 10am – 12pm during local holidays, with a different project each week.

Suitable for all ages, parents or other adults are very welcome to get involved and make their own creations alongside the children. Parents can book to help younger children at no additional charge – let us know when you book so we know who to expect.

We’ll be introducing or refreshing your knowledge of traditional pottery techniques every week and our experienced team of potters will show you how to use textures, stampers and bright-coloured glazes to bring your projects to life.

Our regular families can expand their clay knowledge too, and can try different ways to develop their projects and skills!

Please bring along photos or drawings of ideas to inspire you.

Each session is 2 hours and includes all materials, tuition and use of tools, equipment, glazing and firing of one project.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
