What is intro to Clay?

Fun, games and therapeutic approaches through clay, exploration and experimentation with the medium of clay and printing and drawing with it too. Also looking at the theory, history and the understanding of clay as part of nature and a resource directly from the earth. With the opportunity and technical support to develop your own ideas and an option to get what you make fired and keep forever, or for a special gift.

Can we get any items made fired?

Absolutely, we are happy to fire and glaze your items if you you’d like to. This is not essential but if you did wish to follow this process, there would be an additional charge of £2 per item given to the facilitator on the day.

Firing is a process where raw clay get’s ‘fired’ in a big kiln and turns into a ceramic piece, which can then have glazes to colour or change the characteristics of the pot.

The firing process will be linked with The Pottery at Ocean Studios.

Cost: £7.50 per child
