Give it a go - Clay Handling Workshop

Join Penny, a local well known pottery artist who also exhibits with us as part of Warwickshire Open Studios for a light-hearted go at making pottery!

  • Booking essential

If you have seen the 'Great Pottery Throw Down' and thought that looks like fun, then this event is for you. Penny will teach you how to hand build your own clay creation, impress in clay and use slip colours to decorate it. She will take it away to be fired, returning it 3 weeks later for collection at Upton.

After the workshop you'll be given timed entry into the house.

Beginners very welcome, no experience necessary!

£50 inc materials and refreshments.
