In this clay workshop, you’ll sculpt this hand-built planter from stoneware clay. You’ll create beautiful scaled textures and design your very own mermaid. After building, you’ll book a second session to make your mermaid magical by adding brightly coloured underglaze paints! We’ll fire it in the kiln and it’s yours to take home 7 days later.

As you would expect, it is really hard to know exactly how much time you will need. Every artist is different and often you may want to practice a bit before making your final piece.
|Sessions Required||2 or more. You will need to attend the studio for at least 1 building session and 1 glazing session as we will need to fire the clay before you can glaze.|
