Learn to hand-build a beautiful, elegant and unique Mug and Teaspoon Set using ancient hand-building techniques which include pinch pot and slab rolling. You’ll also learn how to create delicate scalloped detail, and the method of forming simple yet elegant curves for the mug and teaspoon (no pottery wheel required).

We’ve split the workshop into three stages:

  • ONE: Prepare Clay, Create Slip, Pinch Pot 
  • TWO: Scratch and Slip, Slab Rolling, Create Handle
  • THREE: Scallop Teaspoon, Scallop Base, Personalise Base 

The classes are designed so that you will have a lovely time in a relaxed, creative, friendly space. They are suitable for adult beginners with no experience and all levels are welcome.

Once you’ve created your pieces we take them to be bisque-fired, glazed or glaze-fired. You can either collect your work, or we can post it to you.

The fee for this hand-built ceramic mug and teaspoon workshop includes all materials, tools, kiln firing and postage. However, if you have a favourite apron, please do bring it along.
