  • this workshop requires no prior knowledge or experience in ceramics
  • the aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the most comprehensive understanding of the pottery process and due to the nature of ceramics a certain amount of failure is to be expected. The goal is to learn as much as possible while having fun, not to produce a significant body of work
