Craft at The Shops

Want to get hands-on? There’s a variety of workshops to take part in at the Shops. Throw a pot with Crazy about Clay or join in the restoration fun with ReStore’s creative repurposing workshops.


Crazy about Clay

Web Versions 3

A hands-on clay workshop for all ages and abilities.

The workshop is open from Wed to Sun each week with sessions starting at 10:00, 11:30, 2:30 and 4:00 each day.

An hour-long session costs £8, plus a small charge for anything you’d like to have fired and glazed.

Work takes about 3-4 weeks to go through the firing process and can be mailed to you if you’re unable to collect it. The loyalty card discount will still apply for regular customers.

To book your session please email Mary a few days in advance (a week or so at busy times such as school holidays), and I will reserve your place. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
