Pottery wheel and hand-built clay workshops
Creating with clay is such a relaxing and tactile experience. Our pottery workshops are designed as an introduction to the essential techniques for beginners, and skill building if you have some experience.
Join us to enjoy throwing pottery on the wheel and making hand-built clay sculptures! You can add colour and stylish finishes to your favourite pieces in a glazing workshop, shown below.
Explore clay in our half day camps!
Spend a week playing with clay, in our intensive pottery camp! We’ll make lots of fun, creative projects and you’ll learn how to add colour with glazing techniques.
Youth campers will use the wheel at least once during camp, depending on safety and interest. Some campers may find the wheel frustrating, so our hand building projects may be more popular.
Please note that our kids clay camp will not be using the pottery wheels as children under 10 are usually too small to effectively use the wheel.
All materials and kiln firing are included. Completed pieces will be fired and ready to pick up about 2 weeks after camp.
Spaces are extremely limited, so sign up early to avoid disappointment!
