This short and interactive online class will teach you all about working with clay from the comfort of your home.

In this fun and relaxed class, you will learn basic hand-building skills that allow you to form your unique mug with or without a handle out of a lump of clay. We created a Pottery & Ceramics Starter kit that includes all the basic items needed to get you started on your project, please purchase a kit at the checkout which will be delivered to your doorstep.

Once you are happy with the results, you will need to drop your piece off at the studio for the firing process. Our tutor will be able to finish it off with a white glaze if you wish.

By the end of this workshop, you will not only understand the medium but created a beautiful functional mug of your own.
