Pottery Worshops

NEW!!! Our half day pottery workshops are a great introduction to hand build techniques and will allow you can create one-of-a-kind piece of pottery. You will be guided through the processes by our professional ceramicist using either the slab, coil or pinch method. Once you have created your piece, you can select from a range of glazes so we can then fire and glaze your masterpiece for you to collect a few weeks later.
