Introduction to Pottery Making

Introduction to Pottery Making

Using Ruskin Pottery as a source of inspiration, you will be able to create your very own clay pot using the traditional technique of coiling.

You will also get to sample the delights of the potter’s wheel by taking a turn on an electric potter’s wheel. Your masterpieces will be available for you to take away with you on the day.

Once they have air dried, they can be painted with acrylics, oils…or whatever you can lay your hands on!
