All In One Sessions

Hand build and raw glaze a pot. You get to hand build any item of pottery, such as a small vase, using the coiling or pinching technique. Then you will raw-glaze it, by applying coloured glaze directly onto the wet clay you just built. The hand building takes about 50 minute, raw glazing about 50 mins. We give you 2 hours to finish off your pots. We will fire your pot after drying it and it will be ready for you to pick up 18 days after the date of your visit, or any time after that. Please note we only keep pots for 8 weeks only after they areready.
