Handbuilding is a technique that allows you to create forms with clay using your hands, without the use of a wheel.  You will have the freedom to experiement and to create your own unique piece using various methods.

Come along and turn a ball or slab of clay into something unique that when dry can be fired in our kiln to become a lasting piece.  Recommended for ages 4 upwards.

Children need to be accompanied by an adult unless agreed otherwise.

Throwing Session from £12.00

Our taster sessions are just that, a taster of  throwing on a wheel.

It’s messy, the outcome is often unexpected but you will have a lot of fun enjoying  the process.

You can choose to just have a go & take away your piece on the day  or  have a go, leave it to dry & have your piece kiln fired.

Taster is 60 minutes on the wheel but please allow 90 minutes overall.
