Once you have booked a date Katie will email you to ask what workshop you would like to do, this doesnt need to be decided on until a week before the workshop date. You also dont need to pay for the full cost of the workshop until a week before at the latest.

We welcome all groups including work groups and hens parties. People must be at least 12 years of age to join in on the group workshop. You are welcome to bring drinks, including alcohol, you can bring snacks too although your hands will be getting pretty drity with clay.

Glazing your work

Katie will glaze your piece with a clear glaze and it will come out of the kiln glossy and food safe. It will be the colour of the clay which is a buff speckled brown colour (see photos above). Every coulple of months Katie hosts glazing sessions where you can come back to add colourful glazes to your work if you like, this is an extra cost and doesnt need to be decided on until the end of the workshop, each person can decided this individually.
