Clay Pinch Handled Pot Workshop: Tuesday 20 February 6pm-8pm
Learn how to make a small handled vase with Leith Makers resident potter Caitlin Bowbeer at our evening pottery workshop.
This step-by-step workshop will teach you some of the basics of hand building with clay, including working with pinch-pot techniques, joining clay pieces together and attaching handles.
