Ceramics Sampler: Cup

26 May @ 18:00 - 19:30


Sunken Studio are out and about offering ceramics sampler sessions in press-moulding and decorative techniques.

Come and join us at Chirpy in Chapel Allerton for a spirited session making small cups. Learn how to form clay using plaster moulds and then customise your piece with impressed or carved decoration. Perfect for pens, toothbrushes, tea, coffee, candles or small plants…

This sampler is an adaptation of our Ceramics Taster: PRESS. For more information about PRESS and all of our pottery making workshops visit our Tasters, Courses and Events pages or download our menu Ceramics Tasters 2017: Dig in.

The sampler sessions that we offer at partner venues are typically 1 hour long and act as introductions for extended workshops at the studio.
