Course description:

In this pottery class for families with children you will be invited to create, model and build clay sculptures which will tell magical stories.

The tutor Lynne Heaton is an art therapist, teacher and artist with years of experience in running clay workshops for adults and children. Her own work holds and explore the elements, earth, air, water, and fire and she believes that through the creative process of clay making, these elements combine to produce the fifth element, spirit.

Lynne loves to share her love for the transformative experience of creating with clay.

Starting with an idea, modelling with raw clay, uncovering form and texture, firing in the kiln, experimenting with slips and glazes, and discovering the finished piece. For Lynne, this approaches the magical.



The cost of materials and firing is included in the cost of this course. You will be encouraged to fire only your best work and the teacher will be able to advise you on this. You will use slips to decorate your work which will be transparent earthenware glazed by us for you. If you wish to collect your work biscuit fired so that you can paint it at home, please tell the tutor.

You can collect your finished work three weeks after the course.


This course is intended for families with children.
