About the Course
Hanging gardens of Hackney!
Create your own mini gardens in a Hackney Pottery Studio.
This workshop runs from 1pm-5pm. You will make 2 plant holders for succulent plants in red terracotta clay, one free standing and one hanging pot. They will be fired and ready to pick up later with a selection of plants and hanging material.
The workshop introduces you to the pinch pot method and surface decoration can be explored by stamping impressions or additions of cut clay shapes. No previous experience of pottery needed.
Your best two pieces will then be fired and should be available for collection from the studio approximately 4 weeks later (by arrangement). The hanging pot will be strung up, succulent compost provided and a selection of 3 succulents ready for you to plant up.
