Who is this class suitable for?
Suitable for ages 11–15 years Using real stoneware clay, you will learn techniques to form and shape the clay before adding detail using specialist pottery tools. Once you’ve got these basic ceramic techniques under your belt, you can continue to practice using pinch pot methods to create all sorts of ceramic pieces at home – let your imagination go wild! Once your clay is completely dry, use a combination of acrylic paint and PVA glue to seal and decorate your work.

A safe working space
Small glass or yoghurt pot of water
Material to roll clay out onto
Cutting tools such as a plastic knife
