Biscuit firing cost £5 per each person
Glazing and firing by Messums Creative £15 per item

Our pre-school sessions are designed for our youngest artists to come and experience clay making and start discovering the power of their own unique creative language. In this session our inspiration comes from the wonders of Springtime. Come and join us in some messy fun to create a birds nest with eggs and possibly even some nesting birds or hatchlings.

Bridget Timoney has been a practicing potter for ten years. She studied ceramics at Limerick School of Art and Design. She trained under Gus Mableson at the prestigious Thomastown Skills Course and completed an Adopt a Potter apprenticeship with Julie Ayton. Recently Bridget completed her traineeship as Mirka Golden-Hann’s Visual Arts and Pottery Assistant  at Salisbury Arts Centre where she gained an in-depth insight into teaching pottery classes to all ages as well as running a community pottery.

Materials explained: Materials will be provided as part of the course. There is no extra charge if you wish to take home your unfired pieces. If you would like us to fire your work for you to have as a forever keepsake, please add into your basket the firing option you would like. Biscuit firing is the first firing which will turn clay into hard ceramic material. Or you can opt for the workshop to glaze fire your work for you in transparent, white or blue glaze.
