Home Educator Workshop


Home Educators
Fun Pots recognise the importance of expressive and creative learning with practical, hands on experiences. We are keen to offer an insight into the world of pottery painting in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with a range of different pottery painting techniques and tools including brushstrokes, banding wheels, Kemper tools and sponge shapes. You will also have a rare chance to see behind the scenes to discover the process involved in creating a finished, fired ceramic. You can try your hand at glazing plus see up close and personal where the magic happens in our kiln. We will explain the traditional process of firing pottery and how modern-day technology has made it possible for everyone to enjoy making their own masterpieces.

Our special home educator price for a two hour workshop is £16 per painter.
What will it include? 
*A piece of pottery to paint (6 inch square tile, regular mug or miso bowl)
*Full introduction to painting techniques and tools
*Unlimited squash 
*Studio tour including kiln introduction and the opportunity to have a go at glazing
