Ceramic Socials with Amanda Cotton

This beginner’s private lesson is the perfect way to learn, explore & have fun creating hand-made ceramics. Not only that you can bring a friend for free!

Via a step-by-step journey of fundamental hand-building techniques such as pinching, coiling, slab-building & surface decoration, you will explore the exciting world of ceramics. No matter your creative experience or capabilities, you’ll learn the skills to create a bowl/pot & leave busting with pride. But the fun doesn’t stop there, your clay is air-dry therefore you can take it home & keep it forever!
