What's On

Family Clay: Create a Creature

For ages 5+
8 August 2024

A messy creative clay workshop for children aged 5+ and their parent or guardian.

Has your child been inspired by Pottery Throw Down? Why not bring them along and get hands on with clay in our Pottery Studio.

In this one off session you will be shown how to form and join clay, before having a go at creating your own clay creature. You might choose to make a real animal, or an imaginary one!

If parents and guardians want to get involved and make their own creature, additional clay + firing can be purchased as a £10 add-on.

Your creations will be fired onsite in our kiln and will be ready to collect at a later date.

Please bring your own aprons.
