Make it at Home Workshops using air drying clay                        

Create beautiful objects for your home and friends without a kiln! Air drying clay is perfect for home projects where you can't get to my pottery and want to be creative. 

How does it work?

  • a box of materials is delivered  to your door containing the clay, tools, paint and paintbrush.

  • you gather together a few everyday items eg a knife, tea towel, rolling pin pen, paper and scissors 

  • when you're ready click on the video link to get step by step instructions, you can stop, rewind and replay whenever you like - just make, dry, paint

  • Makes 2 candle holders

  • choose  live zoom call - available now   Cost £45 plus p&p minimum 3 people required

  • or choose re-recorded video - available soon Cost £40 plus p&p


These candle holders look beautiful when lit up on an evening as soft light flickers through the holes of the heart design. The insides are painted with shiny metallic gold acrylic paint that glows in the candle light. 

Join me on a recorded video and I'll guide you through every stage from opening the box to lighting the candles. Make, dry then paint. 

Candle holders can be wiped to clean with damp cloth and make lovely gifts - gift vouchers also available.

What can I make?


Here are a few words from Kira who did the small plates workshop 

     "I had the best Sunday since lockdown, so happily engrossed in my plates. It gave me such respite from the horrors of  Covid  

     and this last year. I cannot thank you enough. Everything was perfect, the materials, the clay and the instructions, all really great."

I offer local delivery - within 15 mile radius of YO42 4PB.
