Here at Cardiff Pottery Workshops we are happy to offer our studio space for fun and creative ways to celebrate any special occasion. Whether its celebrating a birthday (both kids and adults) a hen do, baby shower or reunion, come along and try your hand at making a bowl on the potters wheel or getting creative with one of our hand building projects, or perhaps even try both! We offer many options to suit all parties and will be happy to help with any special requirements needed on the day. We look forward to hosting and creating a memorable event with you.
All party plans along with further details are listed below.
OPTION 1 - Throwing
£20 per person.
2 hours total class time.
Make your very own bowls on the potters wheel. Kelly will demonstrate the technique of throwing on a potters wheel. She will take you step by step through the process of making a bowl which you and your party will attempt. Its great fun for both children and adults. In our relaxed and creative studio you, your friends and family will have an excellent time. The party will also have the opportunity to sign a commemorative bowl thrown by the tutor.
OPTION 2 - Hand Building
£20 per person.
2 hours total class time.
Choose from a range of specially designed projects for your party in our hand building area. Kelly will demonstrate the techniques needed to create your chosen project, such as make your own mugs, jug, teapot, lantern and many more. Add your own unique stamp by adding surface texture and pattern to your piece. Alternatively, if you have a specific project we would love to hear you ideas and see if we can accommodate these for your special occassion. Great for all ages and all levels of experience.
If you would like to continue your party and have some food and drinks we can accommodate this with our two large tables in the front of the studio. This area can be booked for a further 30 minutes at the end of your class for an additional £1.50 per person. All food and drink must be supplied by the party organisers, except tea and coffee which we supply. Tables, table covers and chairs are supplied by the studio.

Kelly and her team look forward to meeting you!
Working with clay can be very messy. We supply aprons but it is probably best if you come to the classes in clothes and footwear you don't mind getting dirty. No watches or jewellery to be worn and you may want to tie your hair back in preparation. Cardiff Pottery Workshops Foundation will not be held responsible for any damage to clothing, shoes, jewellery, watches or mobile devices whilst in the studio.
Unfortunately if you miss a class this cannot be taken at a later date and no reimbursement will be offered.
Classes start on time and if you are late you can join the class but time cannot be made up at the end of the workshop.
Classes must be paid for in full.
Please be aware you are in a working studio and due care and attention must be given. Inductions will be given on the equipment you will be using. You must not use any other equipment in the studio. Cardiff Pottery Workshop Foundations will not be held responsible for any injury you may incur if you break the rules of the studio.
We want you to have the best experience during your time in the studio and part of that is making sure all participants comply with our health and safety procedures. You must sign a form agreeing to comply with our Health and Safety practice. The company reserves the right to exclude any participant if they consistently fail to meet any of these conditions.
All work made in classes will be bisque fired and glazed. Please be aware that although every due care and attention is given to every piece we put in the kiln, once inside the kiln we cannot be held responsible for any work that cracks, explodes or is damaged due to another object exploding. This unfortunately, is out of our hands and is part of the many difficulties of working with clay.
We endeavour to have all finished work ready for collection within 3 weeks. After this date we hold all work for a minimum of 12 weeks. Any work not collected after this date will unfortunately be discarded due to minimal studio space. Collection of work is the responsibility of the maker.
All images on the website are used for inspiration purposes only. All work created on a Saturday Workshop will be glazed in a gloss white glaze and not as the images above.
