Get messy and explore and develop creative ideas with clay!

Pottery/ Ceramics for kids is an exciting opportunity to explore and develop your own creative ideas through the medium of clay. This five-weeks course provides an exciting introduction to the world of ceramics for kids (8–11 year olds). 

Children will develop new skills with clay while making unique creations using a variety of wonderful tools. Each art class focuses upon developing skills, learning techniques and expanding self-confidence.

You will have a great sense of achievement and will feel proud of what you have accomplished, hopefully making some new friends along the way. You will also get to take home your own kiln fired and glazed handmade pieces!

The groups are friendly and informal with a maximum of 12 learners so that you can be provided with ample support & encouragement. No previous experience of working in clay is necessary. 

You might also be interested in our Junior Saturday art Club that also runs in a series of five weeks on Saturday mornings from 10am till noon. 

Your finished glazed ceramic creations will be ready to collect from the College two to four weeks after the workshop to allow for the work to be fired in our professional studio kilns. 
Parents are very welcome to come along and support their child, without extra costs.

What I'll learn

We will complete imaginative projects encouraging creativity and self-expression. Throughout the projects, we will be looking at art history and contemporary artistic styles for knowledge and inspiration. 

Experimentation is always encouraged and glorious failures will also be celebrated! 


How I'll learn

You will learn through a variety of methods, including:

  • formal instruction
  • individual tuition
  • practical demonstration
  • practical experience


Entry Requirements

No previous experience of working in clay is necessary. 

It could get messy… so we suggest that you do not wear your best clothes!
