We recommend trimming long nails prior to the session, removing any jewellery, and tying back long hair.

Additional information

The session cost includes all materials, tools and clay.

This is a skills first session, focusing on the process rather than the end result. None of the work produced will be fired or glazed.

There are just 4 places on each session, which will offer a high level of one-on-one teaching and a close-knit studio experience.
