Ceramics Workshop: Plant Pots and Vases

Treat your plant pals to some handmade homes with this ceramics class in London.

4 hours Class size 1 to 12 (public classes), 4 to 8 label £70

Ever wanted to get started with pottery but didn't know where to begin? This half-day pottery workshop in London is the perfect place to dive in! Whether you're an aspiring artisan or are looking for a unique gift for a proud plant parent, you'll learn to create personalised plant pots that'll take pride of place on any shelf.

Beginning with a tour of your hosts' welcoming studio space in Peckham, you'll be shown the ins and outs of all the tools and materials you'll be using to create your pots. After these expert demonstrations, it'll be your turn to get to work for yourself!

Starting with extruding your clay into coils for a professional finish, you'll be hand-building your choice of a large plant pot with a matching holding tray, or a series of mini pots that are ideal for succulents. Whichever you choose, the design is up to you — feel free to let your imagination run wild! You'll also get the chance to have a go on the throwing wheel if you're feeling confident.

Once this half-day session is over, you'll be able to choose your own colour and style of glaze, before leaving your ceramics in your hosts' capable hands. They'll then be professionally glazed before being fired in a kiln, giving your pot a beautiful, unique finish!

Please note: due to the time it takes to glaze and fire each piece, your pot(s) will be ready for collection from the studio within two weeks. Alternatively, they can be shipped to you within the UK for a cost of £10.
