Event Details

Feeling inspired by The Great Pottery Throw Down? Maybe you’re looking for an unusual gift for a pet lover? Come & make your own pet bowls with experienced ceramicist Amy Rutherford.
Treat your pet to their very own hand made bowls and have fun making them too!    In this workshop you will make your own ceramic pet bowls from scratch and decorate them as you choose. Using stoneware clay, you will learn to hand build the pots using slabs of clay and can draw your decoration or choose from a selection of stamps to create your own unique patterns and designs.
You’ll have the opportunity to make either two small or medium pet bowls, or one of each size. The sizes can be adapted to suit most pets, from rabbits to medium/large dogs and most in-between. You will also be able to pick the glaze your pet would like their bowls finished in, from a selection on the day. All the glazes offered are food and pet safe.
After the workshop your creations will be carefully transported back to the studio where they will be fired and glazed. The finished pieces will be wrapped and ready for collection a few weeks later from the Heritage Centre.
The workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those who’ve worked with clay before. Whether you’ve got bags of ideas and inspiration or not, don’t worry, we’ll provide any help you need to make something brilliant!
