Join us for a transformative clay sculpture and hand building class in Newcastle where you'll learn the art of creating your own personalised ceramic clay mug set.

Led by expert instructors, this hands-on workshop will guide you through the process of shaping and moulding clay into a true masterpiece. No prior experience is necessary, so don't worry if you're a beginner. We'll provide all the clay and tools you need to create two beautiful mugs. Want to expand your collection? Add extra mugs for just $10 each.

During the workshop, you'll have the opportunity to express your creativity by painting your mugs with underglazes. Our expert team will then fire and glaze them to perfection, ready for you to collect in approximately 3-4 weeks after the class date. The mugs will be glazed with a clear glaze for the inside.
