In this 4-week hand-building pottery course, you will learn how to create beautiful and functional ceramic pieces that you can proudly take home. Throughout the workshop, you will be guided step-by-step on how to mould and shape clay into various forms, such as bowls, cups, and vases.
If you're new to pottery, do not worry! This class is designed for beginners, and we will provide a nurturing and supportive environment for you to explore your creativity. You'll feel at ease as you discover the joy of working with clay and the satisfaction of handcrafting your own unique pottery pieces.
The class will be conducted in small groups, allowing for personalised attention, and all the materials and tools needed will be provided. You'll learn different hand-building techniques, such as pinch pot, coil, and slab construction, and experiment with surface decoration and glazing.
By the end of the 4 weeks, you will witness a transformative journey as you proudly showcase your handcrafted pottery collection.

Established in October 2019, Fire Nest is run by partners Will and Phoebe in the heart of Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom. We host a variety of Creative Workshops including Candle Making, Pottery, Bath Bomb Making and more.
Both Phoebe and Will started making candles as a hobby alongside their full time jobs, however the passion quickly turned into an ever-growing empire. In their first year of business, they both went full time with the business, reached over 10k followers on Instagram, featured in Vogue magazine, shipped over 5, 000 orders, hosted hundreds of workshops and rented their own shop unit.
After hard work and dedication Fire Nest have products that are safer to burn and perform correctly. We always use sustainable ingredients which are free from phthalates, paraffin, palm, beeswax and synthetic adhesives. Better for your home, health and the environment.
