Join us at POT studios for our 4-week workshop where you will learn the fundamentals of hand building pottery. This workshop is designed for beginners. 

Our hand building workshop runs weekly on Thursday evenings from 6pm - 8:30pm over 4 weeks. Each week you'll learn a different hand building technique and make a beautiful pottery piece that you can keep forever. The skills you learn in this workshop will enable you to create any hand built pottery project. 

Week 1
You'll learn how to build a salad bowl or pot planter using the coil technique. 

Week 2
We'll teach you how to slump clay using plaster moulds and attach legs to make a fruit bowl. 

Week 3
You'll learn the hard slab technique to create straight edges and build a square piece of pottery like a baking dish or square vase. 

Week 4
Using the skills you've gained over the last 3 weeks, you'll use advanced hand building techniques to create a teapot.

After the workshop your pottery will need to dry out, this usually takes two weeks. We will then fire your pottery pieces and if you choose, you can come back to the studio to glaze your pottery. Otherwise, we'll apply our POT studios matte white glaze. After this we will fire your pottery a second time and then notify you that your pottery is ready to pick up. If you don't return to pick up your pottery within 4 weeks of the pick up date, we'll donate it to those in need in our community.
