The Mini Pottery Throw Down!, 10am-12
Inspired by the BBC’s Great Pottery Throw Down! Is your child a mini master potter? Familes can discover their potential at this free session!  The experience will last 20 minutes in which time you will get to try your hand at the wheel and see what you can make. If you’re proud of your pot, have it fired and glazed for a small donation. Pieces will be ready to collect 14-21 days later.

Sunflowers Workshop, 1- 4pm
Inspired by Paul Cummins Poppies. We will work together as a group to create petals that will be joined together forming the flowers. These will be glazed and fired to put on display outside the studio.Then make a small pinch pot and plant a real sunflower seed to take home with you. The experience will last 30 minutes.


Suitable for
