Our tutor will first introduce you to the world of handbuilding using clay at which point you’ll design and start making your own ceramics.

Had a great time on a Saturday afternoon pottery workshop at Maxability. The course tutor was friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful, putting us all at ease. Demonstrations were clear and the afternoon was well paced to ensure we were able to experience different techniques and compete our projects in time. Can thoroughly rcommend and am looking forward to the next course already. Thank you so much!
