Parent & Child Pottery Classes at The Crafty Potter



Hello, I'm sharon an experienced sculpture & clay artist. I host fun and informal pottery sessions from my studio in the beautiful rural village of heskin, Lancashire.

Our Parent & child classes make a fabulous family day out for parents, grandparents or guardians to spend quality time together.

This 2 hr class is designed for children aged between 6-15 years, and is a fun & creative way to explore & experience clay. It is a 1:1 class unless you come with siblings or friends.

You will first choose what you want to make, the choice is limitless and you wont be stuck for ideas as the studio is bursting with ideas & examples.

During this class are shown how to build, assemble & join clay to make a fabulous clay creation.

You can either take the creation home to air dry then paint with acrylics OR
You can glaze paint your creations at the end of your session and leave them with us for firing for collection 3-4 weeks later (Small additional fee of £3.50 per Pot).

The Crafty Potter studio is based within Heskin shopping Village, a unique retail and leisure destination featuring over 40 unique shops and businesses, With free parking we’re a perfect destination for you to make a great fun day out.

The class makes a fabulous gift for all occassions.
