Heather holds a BA (HONS) in Fine Art, and has been teaching locally for over 15 years.
In this class she teaches all methods of making, from hand building techniques such as coiling, pinching and slab work, to throwing pots on the wheel.
You will also learn about the different glazing methods and techniques you can use to finish your creations.

Clay is available to buy at the Centre, or you can use recycled clay to practice with .

This class is suitable for children age 5+ to come along to with their adult or if age 10+ can come without their parents
Have fun as a family being creative together using hand building techniques or trying out throwing on a wheel .

Please note that for children aged under 10 years, an adult ticket must also be purchased for each accompanying adult.
As an adult, you may alternate your attendance with another guardian.

EG. If Natalie aged 6 is coming to pottery with her dad Adam, Adam can send his sister Jess, in his place, to accompany Natalie on a night that he cannot make it. They would purchase one adult and 1 children's ticket.

Or , it may be that two parents will take turns in coming each week with Natalie. They would purchase one adult and 1 children's ticket.
