Join our 6 weeks course for beginners, adults only ( 16+) 

No experience is needed.


Give yourself the opportunity to dive into your creativity, exploring different ceramic techniques in the 'Good Mood' 6-week course for beginners. We'll have special guest teacher Henri from Terrybaun Pottery joining us for wheel throwing on one of the evenings, so everyone will have a chance to give it a go on the pottery wheel.

Each class begins with a short demonstration by one of our experienced ceramic teachers, followed by introducing the tools, clay texture and possibilities. We do our best to make it a fun, relaxing and fruitful time where you can spend with a loved one, meeting new friends, and learning a new skill.
