What's On

Beginners Clay Workshop

For ages 11-16
2 June 2023

Older children and young people aged 11-16 (high school age) are invited to join us over May half term to develop their clay skills.

Has your child or young person been inspired by Pottery Throw Down? Why not book them a space on our beginners clay course for ages 11 – 16.

In this one off session they will get hands on with clay in our Pottery Studio and will learn some basic clay skills. Their creations will then be fired onsite in our kiln and will be ready to collect at a later date.

Please bring your own apron.
