How it works:

We’ll begin the session with a group demonstration, during which our potter will talk you through all the tips and tricks you’ll need to create your own fruit bowl. We’ll be combining slabs, press moulding and coils to create a unique bowl.

You’ll start the session with a sheet of clay and with the support of our potter and oodles of inspiration you’ll end the session having made your own gorgeous fruit bowl, the perfect accessory to any kitchen.

These bowls need to be slowly dried and then fired up to 1000+°c which will take about 3 weeks, after this you’ll then have 1 month to return to paint your pieces. When you return to paint our studio assistants will talk you through all the pottery painting possibilities and set you away painting. It will probably take 2 hours to paint your pieces, depending on how much detail you decide to add.

Once your pots have been painted you’ll leave them with us for another firing this time to a glaze firing up to 998°c, which will make them super shiny and waterproof ready for using! Your finished pots will be ready to collect 7 days after you paint them.
