Join ceramicist Finola Maynard and her team for a hands-on introduction to pottery. These Pop Up Pottery workshops are specially designed so that those new to the craft can get the most out of the session, and have fun as they design, learn and create.
The workshop will begin with a demonstration of how to throw on the pottery wheel, and an introduction to general ceramic skills and handbuilding techniques. You’ll then get stuck into creating your own pieces, taking to the wheel to make your own bowl and vessel with one-to-one guidance from Finola or one of her trained assistants. As well as using the wheel, you’ll also put your handbuilding skills into practice designing and making tiles.
Guests are welcome to make as many pieces as they wish during the workshop, and all work created will be fired and glazed for you to keep.
All materials and aprons will be provided, but do ensure you wear suitable clothing (no loose jewellery or high heels). The workshop is from 10am - 3pm, and includes a delicious lunch in the Carousel restaurant.
