Clay Handbuilding is an ancient pottery technique that involves creating forms using hands, fingers and simple tools. The 3 main techniques are coil pots, slab building and pinch pots. Using these simple methods opens up a whole world of exciting handbuilding projects and allows for your creativity to run wild. We run lots of sessions using these different technique during term time for adults, and in the school holidays for children. We also run Home Education classes on Fridays during term time.
