Your bring along your ideas, designs if you have it on your mind and we work around it, otherwise samples of many possibilities provided. As we work with a soft ceramic materials and its really tactile, I advise to have short fingernails for the class, it doesn't leave marks while handling the soft clay. Tools and material (porcelain clay, decorating materials, glazes) all provided, but you advised to bring a small towel with you as lots of hand washing involved using different materials and water.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
