Step back in time as we use this ancient material to create beautiful pendants, beads, miniture sculptures and wall art.

The beauty of faience is that it is entirely self glazing, leaving you with stunning turquoises without having to mix and apply glaze.

 

The cost for the day will be £90, including a home cooked lunch, teas and coffees as well as all materials, firing costs and p+p of finished work. Please specify any dietary requirements when booking.

what does this mean?

"You are a real inspiration and the nice thing is that it didn’t feel intimidating at all, but at the same time you were able to give your expert advice which I really valued. A million thanks again for a great learning experience, how I wish I’d had the opportunity to learn something like this years ago!"
