Hello, I'm Sharon, an experienced Sculpture & clay artist, I regularly host fun and informal pottery sessions from my studio in the beautiful village in Heskin, Lancashire. This fabulous fun filled day is suitable for beginners and is for adults from 16 years. Up to 5 persons can attend the session. During the day we will explore elements of pottery making. You will experience throwing pots on the potters wheel. You will be shown and guided on how to make your first pot, then given time to practice by yourself. Help & assistance is on hand at all times. We then move over to the work tables to add surface decoration to your creations. You will be shown how to prepare, attach and texture your pots, having access to our cutters moulds and potter tools. Once you have made your creations we stop for lunch 12.30-1.30pm. You can bring a packed lunch with you, or purchase lunch from any one of the various food outlets within the centre. In the afternoon we relax glazing pottery, it's a lovely way to bring the day to an end. Sessions run Tuesday to Saturday every week. Bisque firing of your creations is included and will be ready for collection 3 weeks later. They can then be painted at home with acrylics OR You may wish to return to the studio to glaze your creations, this is an optional extra at a cost of £15pp. 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 day makes a fabulous gift for all occasions.
