Join Ceramicist Ceri Wright in her North Wales studio,
where you’ll be shown how to experiment with all forms
of hand building – with pinching, coiling, slabbing and
modelling techniques demonstrated. 

With these skills you can then create whatever takes your fancy!

Ceri is using household items and objects –
so no specialist tools are required. 

No clay? How about using air drying clay, plasticine,
play dough or salt dough instead, even marzipan
if you have some to hand!

Whether you want to make a simple pot, an alien, or tiles of flowers /plants 
and imprints to remember this period of time – the sky’s the limit!
