If you have always wanted to give pottery a go, would like to try it out before committing to a course, or just want to make something for your home, why not come along to a pottery workshop suitable for beginners and beyond. This half-day workshop will introduce you to the wonderful world of clay, and give you a chance to get your hands dirty. You will be guided through the steps to hand-build an object such as a mug, candle holder, plant pot etc. You can then decorate it yourself using techniques such as sgrafitto or sprig moulding, or choose one of my dipping glazes that I will apply after the first firing. All materials and firing costs are included, as well as refreshments. The course will be run from either 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm. Please contact me to find out about available dates, I will try to be as flexible as possible, but tend to run workshops on Saturdays or Sundays. I can take up to 6 students on the taster workshops. When your piece is fired (which takes around 5-6 weeks) you can come and collect it or I can post it to you at cost.

What's included in the price?

Use of clay, glazes, slips, underglazes, firing costs, tea/coffee.


3 hours (flexible times to suit)

Cancellation policy

Medium - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts

In my own work, I use clay to celebrate the beautiful and diverse human body, by sculpting body parts onto beautiful and functional pieces of ceramics. I run occasional one-day workshops where you can make your own piece of body positive pottery. I also run regular pottery classes from my studio in Brighton, which are suitable for anyone and students are free to choose what they make. My classes are small (maximum 7 students), so lots of 1-2-1 attention (and tea!) is provided.
