Parents! Are you looking for a fun activity for your kids to do this coming school holidays? Why not enrol them in our fun 3 hour wheel throwing class?
Suitable for kids 8 and over, this 3 hour class is all about having fun on the wheel. They will learn how to use the wheel, and get to experiment and play with clay. The aim isn't to create a masterpiece, but to get a little messy, give something new a go and have fun. The added bonus is they will get to fire two of their best pieces.
The class includes the clay and the firing process.
We will have a small break for a snack and a refresh, so don't forget to pack some snacks and water.

Once your piece/s have been glaze fired (usually within 2-3 weeks of your class), you can come pick them up.
