These hand building courses are for people who want to know more about making with clay. If you are an absolute beginner or if you have some experience and want to improve your skills, this is the place for you.

Every session includes a short demonstration of a new skill, including coiling, slab building, pinch pots, using coloured slips, surface decoration, sculpting and glazing. But most of the session is about making with the clay at your own pace, making what you want to make.

The maximum number on each course is 10, so you will have lots of support from me, in a relaxed and positive atmosphere. I take clay very seriously, it’s my passion, but I want you to have fun and enjoy yourselves!

All the materials, tools and firing are included, but if you want to bring your own tools, or a particular clay that you like using, that’s fine too.

Book early to guarantee your place.
