Sunday 21st August
Get hands on with clay and create your own range of ceramics. Sarah Hall and Lisa Ommanney from Turning Earth Studio in Hackney will teach various ceramic hand-building and decorative techniques, showing you how to make your own mezze set in stoneware clay. Play with shapes, size and decorative motifs, creating beautiful and useful pots and platters to enjoy at your table. Your work will then be fired, glazed, and returned to you after the workshop.
The workshop is taking place in the Typing Room at Town Hall Hotel.
