Young Potters

Play with clay! Explore different hand-building techniques like slab, coil and pinch pot to create super cute, quirky and functional pieces.

You’ll hand build a mug and pot or vase. Glaze up your own bisque ware pieces beautifully and create special handmade pieces to enjoy a hot cup of Milo or grow a sweet little plant for your bedroom.

Let’s get messy! Spend time getting lost in creating your own amazing hand-built pottery. Be inspired by the amazing work of contemporary artists like Shelby Sherritt, Muld Pottery, Constance Stotzer, Bonnie Hislop and Phyllis Yu.

A fun, relaxed course for the young pottery enthusiast.
