This step by step class is taught by Sharon, an experienced sculpture & clay artist from The Crafty potter studio in the beautiful village of Heskin, Lancashire.
Our classes are held in small groups of 1-4 unless of course you are part of a larger group, Classes run everyday except Mondays.
The class is a great introduction to the fabulous world of clay hand building. It's a great all rounder class that will suit the needs of many, from Families or couples having fun time together to those with some experience who want to continue their clay journey.
We use pinch pots, coils or slabs to make some fabulous clay creations by hand. You will be shown how to prepare, join & assemble the clay before adding texture & details.
Planters, Vases, butter dish's, fruit strainers, lidded pots, pet dishes, lanterns, Gnomes & simple animals are all popular makes - there's loads of choice and ideas in the studio.
You may be wanting to make a keepsake gift for a special occasion, whatever you decide we will help you make your creation something to treasure forever.
The class includes simple glazing by Sharon ready for collection, should you wish to glaze this yourself on a return visit, it is an additional £10.
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.

Had a fantastic morning at our pottery class. Sharon was lovely, patient and guided us through the process beautifully. Would fully recommend to anyone who wishes to have a go at pottery, we ended with some lovely pieces! Thanks again Sharon :)
Response from The Crafty potter:Thanks Sarah for your lovely review, you made some fabulous cups & saucers -there is nothing like drinking your first brew out of your own hand made cup. It was lovely having you both in the studio.
