👌Is this pottery class suitable for beginners?

Our pottery lessons are aimed at beginners and you will be taught basic handbuilding and sculpting techniques.  However, it's intended to be a fun session and all levels are welcome.

🔞What age is this pottery workshop aimed at?

While the class is aimed at adults,  age 12+ years can attend.

👚What should I wear to a pottery class?

Playing with clay can be messy as you're effectively playing with mud!  Like mud, clay and our underglazes wash easily out of clothing but we advise wearing something comfortable that you don't mind getting mucky.  Also, feel free to bring an apron.

🎨Will I get to use underglazes on my piece?

Yes you will get to use our pottery underglazes to decorate your piece how you wish.

🧋Do you sell food and drink or can I bring my own?

We sell cold drinks which are available to purchase but do not allow you to consume your own food and drink on our premises - except for alcoholic drinks on our Sip and Paint and event nights.

⚠️What should I be aware of?

Due to the nature of clay, problems can arise such as cracks and pieces becoming detatched during the making, drying and firing process.  Instruction is given on how to minimise issues.  If, in the unfortunate event, something happens to your piece, we will do our best to fix it but please be aware it's not always possible.
