How it works

During this beginner-friendly workshop, you will learn the pottery basics from your expert host and with step-by-step instructions, will hand build and decorate 1-2 mugs using the pinch pot or slab-building technique. After class ends, your class host will take your mug(s) home and let them dry for 7-10 days. Then your pottery will be fired in a professional kiln and glazed in your choice of clear or white glaze, making it food-safe and waterproof. Once fired and glazed, your mug(s) will be carefully packaged up and shipped to you - or your loved one - to enjoy your morning cuppa.
