Unleash your inner potter by having a go at hand building or throwing clay on a wheel with The Clay Team. Get inspiration by exploring the Laing’s permanent art displays from 15th century to the present day!
This is a free drop-in event as part of The Late Shows, supported by The Biscuit Factory. For a charge of £5, your make can be fired and glazed for collection from the Laing about three weeks later. This event is likely to be popular with places allocated on a first come first served basis. NB: The Clay Team’s drop-in event will only take place 7-9pm, however the Laing’s permanent displays will be open until 11pm.
Donations welcome, free entry.

*NB: Wheel throwing is for over 16s only. All under 16s should be accompanied by an adult.*
