These two hour workshops are just the thing for beginners who are eager to try their hand at ceramics! Join us for these seasonal workshops, we'll be serving mince pies and prosecco while you craft your ceramic masterpieces.

These themed workshops give you a great introduction to handbuilding with the help of our head potter Karl Owen, who will guide you through the steps and teach you the basics of clay handling to make your own mugs or porcelain Christmas decorations depending on which session you sign up for.

We provide all the materials and tools needed, just bring along your imagination. All work will be fired and ready for collection by Saturday 19 December - perfect for personalised Christmas presents!
