Please call 0208 1665 134 on arrival for directions.

I’m an artist/educator based in Margate in Kent and founder of GoCreate.co.uk which runs creative workshops and events. My primary practice is oil painting and over the years my painting has journeyed from realism to smudgy impressions. I also have secondary and tertiary projects and artforms which allow me to explore materiality, processes and to […]Read More »

Your ideas with our teaching approach will get your hands dirty and sculpting in the first 5 minutes.You’ll need to decide on what to make from the word go and we’ll give you some pointers. We then fire and glaze your best 2 pieces in a colour of your choice.

THE REAL DEAL CERAMIC WORKSHOP

This 3 hour workshop introduces you to basic handbuild ceramic techniques. During the session you can work on your own small bowl, cup, vase or trinket box; we’ll teach simple slabbing and coil building techniques as well as basic surface decoration. We use lead free glazes and stoneware clay which means your final piece will be food safe, oven proof, dishwater proof, microwave proof – but not idiot proof. If you drop it it may smash!

Your best two pieces will then be fired and glazed in a colour of your choice (subject to variations in the glaze itself), and should be available for collection approximately 4 weeks later. We keep pieces for up to 3 months after notification i.e. 4 months after the workshop date.  A fun class suitable for children and adults.


WHAT TO WEAR 
Guests don’t generally get that messy and clay does dust off but do feel free to bring an old shirt to protect your clothes.
REFRESHMENTS
We provide teas and coffees on arrival but feel free to bring your own bottles of water or soft drinks into the room.
 
CERAMIC GLAZING – IMPORTANT
 We fire and glaze your best 2 pieces for example a bowl and a vase. There is an additional charge if you would like further pieces fired and glazed – small pieces are usually £1-£2 extra. Medium pieces i.e. mug size £3-4.

Please note your ceramic pieces will take up to 4 weeks to fire and glaze. Occasionally pots don’t survive but where potscrack we offer a piece or two that haven’t been claimed after some time.

THIS IS ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR COURSES. ITS A FANTASTIC COURSE AND IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
BOOKING TERMS Date changes or cancellations are possible with no charge more than 4 weeks notice from the course start. Cancellations with two weeks to one month from the course start incur a 50% charge.   No refund will be given within 2 weeks of the course start. We do however allow people to send someone else in their place – simply let us know the name of the person who will take your place in advance. 
FEEDBACK
Had a fun morning. I wasn’t expecting to come in and get straight down to making a piece of pottery, but it was hands on all the way from the moment of arrival. Great teaching support and very friendly atmosphere.
Great morning! Looking forward to receiving our pots.
Kirsty was super attentive – thoroughly enjoyed the class. Would def recommend Go Create.
I went with my 2 children aged 8 and 5 and they thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. R Welling
