What you'll do

This is a fun 2 hour pottery session designed for families with children. There is space for up to 5 people. You will experience both hand building a small pot as well as having a little go on the pottery wheel. At the start of the session, I will do two short demonstrations on how you can make pots using clay. I will show you how to make a simple hand built pinch pot (which can be turned into an animal if wished) and also how to throw a very simple bowl on the wheel. Then it's time to play and make your pinch pot, whilst this is happening, I will pull each person out one at a time to have a little go on the small table top potter's wheel. I will center your ball of clay for you and help you to make a successful pot. We will be using white earthenware clay and you will come away with two pots, (one hand built and one wheel thrown) if you wish you can add a splash of colour to your pots by applying some coloured slips. Your pots will then be left with me to dry and be fired twice in the kiln. They will have a beautiful clear glossy glaze applied and will be ready for collection or posting around 4 weeks later. Postage will incur an additional fee of £10 per family group

Louisa

I am a self employed potter and pottery tutor. I have a degree in art and design along with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) I am slightly obsessed with clay and love sharing my passion with others. I have a studio in Scarborough where I offer pottery sessions in both hand building and wheel throwing for beginners. I am a mum to three teenagers, so life is pretty busy. For me, clay is the best way I have found to unwind and relax. Everyone can benefit from a little 'me time' from time to time and I believe having fun squishing some mud is about as good as it gets :)
