This class can be a fabulous introduction to the world of clay hand building, or is suitable for those with some experience who want to continue their clay journey.
We use either coils or slabs of clay to make some fabulous creations. Plates, planters, butter dish's, fruit strainers, pet dishes & lanterns are all popular makes - there is loads of choice and you can choose on the day.
You will be shown how to prepare, join & assembling the clay before adding texture & details.

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.
