Hey Clay! at David Fry School of Ceramics, Newcastle upon Tyne

Learn how to throw a pot on the wheel, roll out clay for slab-building and make thumb pots with a Master Studio Potter. 

Take in the atmosphere of a professional ceramics studio while trying your hand at a range of pottery-making techniques. Start with making a thumb/pinch pot to get the feel of the clay; roll out clay into slabs to build sculptural objects; and have a go on the wheel and try to throw a pot. 

If you would like to have your creations fired then there will be a cost of £5.
