Pottery Making

Make a clay pot on the wheel

Activity Details

We can guide you and your hands into making your first clay pot. A single lesson will give you great insight into how the wheel works and how the clay takes form. At the end, you will be able to *take the pot you made home with you. ​ "Make a Clay Pot" For all ages we invite you to make a small clay pot on the wheel. Every pot is made within 10-15 minutes and the price is 12€ per pot. You can choose to make more than one pot per person. Create your own clay pot to take home* (please read details below*), perfect for a first-time pottery experience and for younger children. Booking is required *We are also offering: Bisque firing* (from 5€ per piece) Glaze firing** (from 10€ per piece) Shipping the pots directly to your home once they are ready (10-15€ per pot on average) *Bisque firing is the process of firing a clay piece in a special kiln which slowly raises the temperature until it reaches around 1000°C (1832°F). In that process the clay becomes ceramic. Cretan clay in particular forms a red terracotta look and feel. **Glaze firing requires the initial (bisque) firing and yet another similar firing for the applied glaze to form. The pieces are then suitable for everyday use (food safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe). Average times for firing are 4-7 days (for bisque) and 10-14 days (for glazing). Pots usually dry within 24-48 hours. With no extra cost you can choose to carefully take your pots home unfired and keep them as decoration or paint them with acrylics.
