Bowls are a great entryway into ceramics and we all know how good it feels having breakfast with handmade bowls. During this short pottery class you will be making bowls and learning two techniques to make them: pinching and using forms.
This taster class will give you a good basis into two hand-building techniques and you will be able to take up to two pieces with you. Let it be the start of your journey into pottery or a fun activity with a friend. The pieces you create can also be perfect as thoughtful gifts.
