About the event

After many requests Highland cows are back! Read further if you're interested in this workshop. 

In this clay sculpting session on 7th May we will be sitting down for a 3hour workshop and hand building our cows. We will be using soft white earthenware clay, with techniques such as making pinch pots, learning about score and slip, and using a range of pottery tools.  Our cows will then be carefully dried and fired at the studio. This will take 3-4 weeks. 

This is a fast paced advanced beginner level workshop and we recommend it for people aged 16+. Younger children can attend, but we cannot guarantee they will be able to follow along - this workshop uses basic tools and techniques but is FAST paced and due to time restraints we will not be able to slow the pace. This a group setting and not one-to-one tuition.

Once fired your (now pottery) cow will be available for decoration, at your leisure in our studio during our regular hours - no workshop, just using your imagination.  

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early if you would like to order drinks - drinks will be available during the session, but tuition will start promptly at 6pm and drinks may then not be available until a suitable break in the teaching. As a small business we do not allow outside food/drink on our premises.

The cost for the combined sessions is £40. The £5 booking deposit is taken off the balance and you then pay £25 on the first workshop and £10 when you decorate. If you'd prefer to have your cow simply clear glazed or to take home and paint with your own acrylic paints, this is also an option - with no additional painting fee. 

We will hold your cow for up to three months for you to decorate (after we have let you know it's ready). If you do not decorate within this time we reserve the right to dispose of it (due to limited storage).
