If you are looking for a unique experience, a clay workshop is a wonderful opportunity for all ages to enjoy relaxed creative time. Hens weekends, family events, corporate team-building, staff parties or any other gathering – all are welcome.
Our workshops provide brilliant hands-on fun which encourages participants to interact and work together. You don’t need any artistic skill in order for this to be enjoyable and successful – everybody can do it and participants are always filled with a huge sense of achievement. After the workshop we will fire and glaze your pieces as a lasting souvenir.
