Pottery: Taster

Delete distractions and get creative with clay. In this taster session for beginners, you’ll get hands-on and learn the pinch and coil techniques, which are the principles of hand-building.

The aim of this session is to make pottery accessible and enjoyable for all. It’s an opportunity to give it a go and make something unique – and if you like the experience, you may want to try one of our more advanced classes where you can make your own glazed tableware, or even try throwing on a wheel.

Within the hour session you will use the techniques taught to make your own creation, which can then be fired and sent to you at a later date.

Need to know:

This class is a taster session where participants learn processes of working with clay, due to the drying time and different processes of firing, you do not take anything home with you on the day. However we will post creations out to you, or you are welcome to come back and collect at a later date if you prefer.

Pls note: if any items are returned to Birch by royal mail for any reason, there will be an additional charge to repost the items to participants. 

Ages 12+
