Description

This three hour pottery session is suitable for either a complete beginner, or for those that have some experience working with clay and would like to develop their skills. During the session you will be able to try out a variety of pottery making techniques, including learning the skill of how to throw on the wheel, which is good fun! You can then also try out some other techniques such as pinch pots and coiling or using moulds. You will be guided through the different making techniques and you can be as creative as you like. You will then be able to decorate your chosen items with coloured slips if you wish. You can choose up to 3 of your items to be fired and glazed. These will be ready to collect approximately 4-6 weeks later. We can accommodate up to 4 people in one session, but do require a minimum of two people to book for it to run.

We can sometimes also run these during the week, so please get in touch if there is a particular date you would like and we will try and accommodate you. We are located in a rural, peaceful setting on a small farm on the outskirts of Holbeach, near Spalding in Lincolnshire, where we also keep our pedigree sheep! There is plenty of off road parking.
