Experience the life of a potter for the day!

Get the engine ready! The steam engine operates all the machines. We need liquid clay – and lots of it! Use your feet to make a gloopy clay slip ready for casting.
Weigh the clay, mould and make your creations then send them to the decorating department. Finally, it’s all about the design – we need an eye-catching print to make our pottery stand out from the crowd!

Suitable for all ages.
Family Ticket: £10 per family (2 adults and up to 3 children)
Single Admission: £3pp

Admission includes all Mini Potters’ activities.
Saturday 10th August – 10am – 4pm.
