Tarka Pottery

Roman Clay Workshop Friday 3 April 10am - 12noon

From April 03, 2020 10:00 am until 12:00 pm

You'll be making pottery in the style of the Romans. Did you know pottery was an important part of daily living in ancient Rome? They used earthenware clay to create a huge number of cooking pots and fine wares. 

You’ll make your pot using the traditional technique of coiling then we’ll cover it with a coloured slip of your choice before you engrave or carve out pictures, patterns or words! 

This workshop lasts 2 hours. 

We have workshops every Friday morning during school holidays in 2020 and the studio is open Tuesday - Saturday. Did you know we can offer this project as a party or to a group another time if you can’t make the advertised workshop? Contact us to arrange a better date.
