I will also tailor the day to suit your skill level and give you full guidence in building what you desire.

This 1-day pottery workshop is approximately 6 hours with a break for lunch. The workshops are structured to be fun and creative, where students of all ages can let their imaginations run wild, by creating hilarious monster pots, wall hanging gargoyles and scary monster vases.

I have highly recommend this clay day with Di. It was my first time with clay and it was really relaxing and fun. I learnt so much and made some great things including 2 very funny grotesque plant pot holders. I am looking forward to seeing the glazed and fired. I have done other workshops with Di so I know she is a very good teacher. She works to your pace so you never feel rushed or stressed. You can take away as much or as little as you want from this day. K.

Response from Art on the Edge:

Glad you have a fun day. We did make some wonderful grotesques !!

This is the 2nd workshop I have been on with Di. I am so proud of my creations. I have not been on a clay day before and Di was a wonderful instructor. She walked me through each stage with care. I totally recommend this workshop. I came away having build a great gargoyle to hang in my garden and some gargoyle pots.

Response from Art on the Edge:

Thanks Rab . I really had fun too ! Di
