Mermaid Planter

In this clay workshop, you’ll sculpt this hand-built planter from stoneware clay. You’ll create beautiful scaled textures and design your very own mermaid. After building, you’ll book a second session to make your mermaid magical by adding brightly coloured underglaze paints! We’ll fire it in the kiln and it’s yours to take home 7 days later.

Glazing time: 1–1.5 hours (you can book your glazing time 7 days after your building day)

As you would expect, it is really hard to know exactly how much time you will need. Every artist is different and often you may want to practice a bit before making your final piece.

Sessions Required 2 or more. You will need to attend the studio for at least 1 building session and 1 glazing session as we will need to fire the clay before you can glaze.
