Hand Build a Terracotta Plant Pot

About the event

Join local ceramicists Laureanne Kootstra and Rebecca Killen for a creative evening at the seaside exploring handbuilding and surface decoration techniques to create your very own terracotta plant pot.

This hands on workshop will involve cutting, joining and layering rich terracotta clay as well as sgraffito decoration to bring your pots to life. The workshop is suitable for beginners as we will guide you through each part of the process.

Your plant pots will be fired in our kiln and ready to pick up from The Ash Gallery in 2 weeks.
