Terracotta Plant Pot – Coil Building Workshop

Terracotta Plant Pot – Coil Building Workshop

This new one-and-a-half hour workshop is suitable for all ages. You will learn how to build a traditional terracotta plant pot using the coiling technique. This hand-building pottery technique will involve  your slowly building your plant pot, so patience and an attention to detail will be required! The basic method will be outlined at the start, and then it’s up to you to create your pot – and of course its little saucer – so it doesn’t leave water marks. Once finished, your pot will stay at the studio to be fired, glazed and then re-fired. Then it can be planted up and wow friends and family alike. 

There are only six places per session – this allows enough access to support for everyone to be successful! As always, this is a creative class designed to be accessible to all, including younger potters, but a parent or guardian must attend with any participant aged 16 or under (no charge for those accompanying a child). Numbers are limited to avoid over-crowding in the workshop. Each ticket books a maker’s-seat at the pottery table. 

The ticket price covers all tuition, tools, firings and glaze for one coil plant pot and saucer. Please note that these pots will be glazed in just one colour – dip glazed as you request.

Workshops are 10:30 and 14:00 and cost £20, to book click here
