Make-your-own pottery gnomes

We have our own pottery gnome called Sherlock...okay, so maybe not the most inventive name but we sure had a blast making him!

We are delighted to be popping a clay workshop into the calendar after months of uncertainty!

This pottery making workshop is designed for all the family to enjoy together...and we know from previous gnome makers, how brilliant it can be to have your own family set lined up in the garden this Summer!

Come and make your own pottery gnomes, at our in-studio pottery making workshop on Tuesday 11th August at 11am.

You will have all the tools and materials you need to make your own...alongside full instruction and support.

“Do we all need to take part?”

To retain Covid confidence at all times during the experience, places are limited for this workshop. We politely ask that all attendees are paying participants (i.e no non-making spectators). Thank you for your understanding.

“Will we paint our pottery gnomes?”

Yes! For best results, and the ability to use outdoors, the pottery will need to be ‘bisque-fired’ prior to painting.

To give you the added experience of painting these yourself, the cost includes painting these at home.

Once your pottery has had this first kiln-fire, you can pick them up for painting at home. Inc in the cost of your workshop is a set of underglaze paints for your home painting. Return to us when ready and we we over glaze and ‘final-fire’ your gnomes for you...allowing for bright, shiney and protected results, ready for garden use!

“How much does it cost?”

The cost is just £15pp and is great value, which includes:

Workshop materials/tools/instruction

Bisque kiln-firing

Underglaze paints for use at home

Overglazing and final kiln-firing

Juice on tables for all participants

“What age is this suitable for?”

Please note this workshop is NOT suitable for children under the age of 6 and is designed for families to work together to each create a gnome of your own. There is no upper age limit!

“I love it! How do I book?”

As with all bookings presently, it is essential you pre-book places for this workshop. For this one though, please get in touch DIRECTLY to book (please do not use the online table booking tool) so that we may manage allocated places.

“My friends are coming along too!”

Where possible we can seat you at a table near to friends, if attending the same event (subject to capacity)

We can’t wait to see you!!
