This is how it works:
For the time being, we’re keeping class sizes to a minimum to allow for social distancing. Through out April and early May we will be working outside in our lovely Potting Tent Marquee. Although we are blessed with ample studio space we are currently unable to accommodate spectators and ‘helpers’. All children must be accompanied by a fee paying adult.
On arrival you will be guaranteed a warm welcome from your professional pottery hosts. You’ll then settle down to watch a demonstration from your assigned potter before getting stuck into the clay yourself.
You’ll each be given a lump of clay to make your sculpture and encouraged to work independently, but don’t worry, your professional potter will be close (but not too close!) at hand to offer guidance and advice if you get a bit stuck.
Once all members of your group have a ‘creation’ to show for their efforts, you’ll have the opportunity to paint your freshly made masterpiece in coloured under-glazes.
Your creation will need to dry before it’s fired and glazed. This process takes about a month, after which your fabulous ceramic item will be ready for collection from the Pottery. P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.
Please allow 1.5hrs for the whole experience.
