What will you do?
You will use a beautiful white clay to make small clay hearts and decorate each with textures and character, 4 of your own decorations and all materials are covered in the price. This includes the clay and wire and firing your masterpiece after they have dried carefully.
There will be lots of support and advice to help you. You will need to arrange to collect once fired (in about two weeks’ time) or your pieces can easily be posted at cost.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
Everyone can do this – and so far people that have come have given fab feedback on my pottery experiences. My workshops are for adults – minimum age is 16 years old.
How many people will be on the course? There’s space for 10 people on my workshops, and the course will definitely run if there are at least 6.
Tea, coffee and water will be provided.

Who will I be taught by?
You will be learning from me, Louise Crookenden-Johnson, potter and clay enthusiast. I have been working with clay since my teens – 40 years ago! – in many different forms and in my Kettering pottery for the last 4 years. I adore being able to pass on new skills and inspire others. My approach is friendly and relaxed and I have seen that everyone has creative spirit, just not always the confidence, I love helping that emerge and seeing proud new potters.
