Hand Building Pottery Workshop

Hand Building Pottery Workshop

Join Ravn Clay on a three hour workshop, suitable for absolutely everyone, where we will work with stoneware clays to create your own pottery masterpieces. Hand building remains the overlooked older sibling of the flashier wheel thrown pot, but it is an ideal place to learn for anyone wishing to play with clay. The session will involve a brief introduction to some basic rules for safe working in the Studio, alongside some principles to bear in mind when creating your own work. This will be followed by plenty of time for you to release your inner potter. It could be a vase, a mug, a candle holder, a sculpture … if you can imagine it, we will do our best (together) to make it happen.

After the three hours are up, your work will stay at the studio where it will be dried, fired, glazed and re-fired. Then you are welcome to return to the studio to collect it, or have it posted on afterwards. The whole drying-glazing-firing process could take up to a month, so please be patient. That said, what better way is there to build memories, create something for a special someone and be reminded of your time in the studio.

Workshops cost £45, to book click here
