We are so happy to announce the launch of this new after school 6 week pottery course, designed for children.

Here at Artshed we teach over 60 adults a week pottery design skills, so we thought let’s provide our extensive clay knowledge and design inspiration to a younger age group (from 10yrs) We know children are able to follow step by step instructions to learn and create some really well structured pieces out of raw clay, using different tools.

They will learn how to adapt their skills to develop their own style over the weeks.

6 weeks is just enough time to learn the basics of coiling, pinch pots and slab work, using slips and glazes to decorate their pieces.

Focusing on nature as our inspiration your child will explore pattern and mark making, imprinting and sculpting to create a number of items that can be brought home once they have been glazed and fired.

All pieces take around 21 days to dry out and be fired twice, so they won’t all be ready to take home on the last day, but we will contact you to let you know when they are ready.

If you require any more information, please chat to our friendly staff on 01920 466446 or email us enquiries@artshedarts.co.uk.
