We strongly recommend that learners wear non slip, closed footwear in the pottery area as there is often a lot of dust created and the floors may become slippery when wet if there are spillages

Parents help the child to complete each project and also have the opportunity to make their own pieces as the child becomes more confident.



There will be an additional cost for clay which you pay for by weight. This includes glaze and firing. All students under 16 will need parental consent to attend classes at RACC for safeguarding reasons.
