Looking for a fun and relaxing way to unleash your creativity? Join Creative Ceramics for a pottery making class where you can leave with handpainted and handmade pottery pieces you love!

With full support and guidance provided, you'll be amazed at what you can create with just a little bit of patience and creativity. Don't worry if this is your first time making ceramics, you'll have friendly, local teacher Sandra on hand to help at all times!

You'll spend 45 minutes on the wheel or creating a pinch pot, followed by 45 minutes of decorating and glazing a pre-made piece. Giving you the best of both worlds, crafting by hand and getting creative with pottery painting!

Unwind at the pottery studio and take in the beautiful scenes of the Edinburgh harbour as you create beautiful pieces and relax to your own choice of music! It's the perfect way to spend time with loved ones and shared an intimate Edinburgh experience.

After you've completed your creations, Sandra will carefully glaze and bisque-fire it to set the design. There are a few flat-coloured glazes to choose from too!

Finished pieces are ready to be collected in three weeks or can be posted for an additional charge. Alternatively, you can pay for a speedy firing process and have your piece ready to collect or be shipped in 10 days instead.

Sandra was an amazing teacher, we booked a private class and had the best time! It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend booking with Sandra, plenty of time on the wheel and to decorate a piece of pottery too. A very warm and relaxed environment, would 100% go back again!

Teacher's response

Hi Shaunna,

Best wishes Sandra

This class was so much fun. Sandra is such a great teacher! I was pretty terrible at following the instructions but was still able to make some interesting peices on the wheel. I could definitely see how her fun, calm and patient personality would work with various groups of people, young and old. We would like to take take our boys back for a class one day!

Teacher's response

Thank you for your kind review Kelly! You certainly are the creative one on the wheel So glad you and David enjoyed the class your work looks fabulous.

I cannot recommend this enough! Well worth every penny. Sandra, our teacher was beyond fantastic, the place was completely adorable and very cozy, we got plenty of tools and materials and it was all around a very fun experience. Special thanks to Sandra for being so welcoming! We really enjoyed chatting with you!

Daniel Vandenbulcke Jul 2023

Sandra was amazing to teach, put us at ease and is very approachable.
The class was super instructive, fun, and despite the fact we were four, she gave us all enough attention and support during the learning.
She quickly explained us the basics of the wheel but never forgot to come back at us to check and correct.

Never a negative word regarding our making and if we did she was always flipping the view on the positive side.

Definitely recommend !

Teacher's response

Thank you all so much for your 5 star review! Best wishes Sandra.
