The outcome reflects a combination of both careful planning and accidental surprise resulting in colourful and endless surface patterns.

In this 2.5hr course you will be taught various Nerikomi techniques which can be applied in into your own choice of tableware – dish or plate. Choose from our range of colours to create more traditional geometric pattern or a more freeform organic…

Wonderful class. The teacher, Ines, was brilliant - explained everything very clearly and made it great fun! I will definitely be back for more
Archana Sagar - 10 June 2022
The class was great. A lot of fun. Aprons provides and lots of clay to make your pieces. Postage value is too high. My piece was stained and it had a crack in the glaze which I was super unhappy about. Overall a fun class.

Awesome class, Ines was a joy to learn from and the class was super calm and well explained- I left feeling relaxed and satisfied with my new skills! 100% would recommend for some much needed clay therapy 👍
