Ever wondered what it would be like to work with clay?  Come and join us on this popular new course!

Designed for complete beginners or those who have very limited experience of working with clay; this will be a ‘hands on’, step by step practical course.

Starting with the fundamentals, exploring a range of hand-building processes, colour techniques and decoration methods you will produce a range of unique pieces to take away at the end.

Over the course, you will develop a basic understanding of clay as a material, learn how to handle it and have the confidence to explore the subject further upon completion.


It is advised to wear closed-toe footwear and non-precious clothing – although we do provide aprons.
