Family Ceramics Workshop

This is a great opportunity for you and your little ones to spend some quality time together while having fun and being creative. Our teaching artists will guide you through basic hand-building techniques allowing your family members to create their own unique ceramic objects. These will be glazed and fired by our technicians, ready for collection in 3 to 4 weeks. Family ceramic workshops are suitable for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years of age, although we require that they attend with a participating adult.
