Hey Clay!

Getting creative with clay from 7- 9 April 2017

Hey Clay! is a national celebration of clay through free pottery sessions across the UK. Hey Clay! will take place during the nationwide Get Creative weekend from 7-9 April.

Hey Clay! visitors will be able to witness the drama of raku firing and have a go at throwing on a wheel, pinching, slab building, coiling and much more.  You will be able to create pinch pot egg cups  in West Yorkshire,  make a clay figure at the Leach Pottery in Cornwall, create terracotta pots at Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales, have a go on a wheel in Bristol’s mobile pottery studio. Plus the home of the Great Pottery Throw Down – Middleport Pottery - will be hosting a whole weekend of fun activities. 

“Hey Clay! is a fantastic opportunity to roll up your sleeves and have fun with clay - the most responsive of materials"  Kate Malone, ceramic artist and judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down

“I am so happy to hear that Hey Clay! is back. It’s a not to be missed opportunity where the public can get creative and unleash their inner potter for free." Keith Brymer Jones, maker and judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down
