Family Time Taster Class - pottery handbuilding & wheel throwing class

What better way to spend quality time with your favourite youngster or two, than to make pottery together! In this introductory, fun class, you will be taught pottery techniques to enable you to make and keep 2 pottery pieces each - one handbuilt and one wheel thrown.


This is a group class of up to 12 adults and kids and will cover a go on the wheel, handbuilding including coiling and pinching, and underglazing. There is a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 (adults and kids aged 6 to 14) and this is a great way to share moments and memories with your little ones.


"Just wanted to say thank you for the family class on Sunday. My husband wasn't sure he would enjoy it but I think he loved it the most! It was great to do something creative together with the kids and we will definitely be back soon. Please thank the whole team, they made us feel really at ease and the studio itself is gorgeous."
Mrs A, Marlow
