Subject: 'Good Mood' Ceramic-Making Workshop for Adults -

Make a LEMON SQUEEZER bowl with drainer 


Date: THURSDAY, September 28th


Time: 6.30 - 8.30 p.m.


Join our 'Good Mood' ceramic-making workshop for adults and immerse yourself in the art of ceramics without needing any prior experience. 


The workshop takes place  at The Mood Designs, located on Ellison Street, Castlebar, Co. Mayo (F23 CD83). The class will be held in the upstairs studio, providing a comfortable and creative environment for you to explore your artistic talents.


The session starts with a brief demonstration led by our experienced ceramic teachers. They will guide you through the various ceramic techniques, including slab building and underglaze decorating, enabling you to craft your masterpiece. Don't worry if you're new to ceramics; the workshop is designed to be fun, relaxing, and fruitful, allowing you to enjoy the process and unleash your creativity.


In the class, we provide all the necessary materials, clay, tools, and textures to work with. Once you've completed your sculpture, our team will handle the glazing and firing processes in our studio. Afterward, you'll receive a text message to let you know when your finished piece is ready for collection.


Please note that the glazing and firing can take approximately 3 to 5 weeks after the workshop. But it'll be worth the wait when you see the final result, which you'll undoubtedly be extremely proud of.


To ensure everyone gets personalized attention, we have limited places available, so booking in advance is essential. Should you need to cancel, we offer a full refund for cancellations made up to 2 days before the workshop. However, late cancellations won't be refunded.


We encourage you to explore your creative side, meet new friends, or share this experience with a loved one. You never know, this workshop might spark a newfound passion for ceramics within you. For more information and to secure your spot, please contact us at


Come and join us for an enjoyable and enriching ceramic-making experience!

    The Mood Designs takes a serious approach towards health and safety for the sake of all staff and students. Students use the studio at their own risk, with awareness of the inherent hazards of a Studio environment, which include, but are not limited to, use of sharp tools and sharp edges, exposure to toxic materials, the dangers of using materials and equipment at high temperatures, and the risks associate with breathing dust.

    Students must comply with all health and safety instructions given by staff at all times.

    Students are required to keep all surfaces clean of clay and glaze and to clean all areas including the floor around their work area thoroughly before completing their class.

    In the interests of safety and hygiene, no crockery, glass or food are permitted in the Studio working areas.

    Other than with the exception of guide dogs, no pets are permitted in the Studio buildings.

    Studio is based on the first floor, no lift, only stairs access.

    Students must use the main entrance to the Studio when entering or leaving the Studio. Fire exit, which are clearly marked, are there in the interests of safety and students must not interfere with these exit for any reason. In the event of a fire, students are asked to make their way to the nearest available exit.

    Smoking is forbidden in the Studio.

    Technical issues and breakages

    The Mood Designs will try to ensure that experienced and trained staff are the only people who will handle and fire your ceramic work. However, by the very nature of ceramics, especially within a teaching studio, there is always a risk of technical failure, occasional technical errors and breakages for which we cannot be held in any way responsible.

    Collection of Works

    We recommend you collect your finished work as soon as possible after your class, workshop or course to help keep our storage area clear therefore avoiding damage. If finished ceramic work is not collected within 3 months of the end of the class, workshop or course we will sadly have to dispose of it.

    If you attend a class, workshop or course from further afield we can package and post to you for a basic postage and package cost, but we cannot
