POTS N PINTS: Pottery in the pub night! First Drinks on US!
15th November 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join POTS N PINTS for their pottery-in-the-pub night held every month at the Belvedere, Weymouth. Get down and dirty with a big ol’ wet lump of red clay and let your imagination run wild. You’ll be given hand-building instructions and a set of tools, and the rest is up to you. No experience or artistic ability necessary, just bring some over-ambition and good humour. Anna is on hand to be your pottery guru, so pick her brains, she’s there to guide you as much or as little as you need!
At the end of the night, you’ll leave alone. But don’t fret, it’s only a break. In 4 weeks, at the next event, you’ll be reunited with your beauty once again, but a much harder, long-lasting and stronger version of what they once were. Your pots will fire a gorgeous rich orange colour, but if you fancy painting them, there will be paints and brushes ready for anyone wanting to add a splash of colour to their creations. Booking is required to paint.****
Each lump of terracotta is plenty to make an elaborate 15cm pot. Everything will be left unglazed, so will not be food safe/water tight. Think classic plant pot material. Not potty about pots? Think candle holders, incense burners, wall hangings, ashtrays, plaques, fruit bowls, jewellery dishes, jars, vases, figurines and decorations!
Limited spaces available.
〰️ Over 16’s only 〰️
Ticket price includes a pint!!! Glass of wine, house spirit & mixer or non-alcoholic options available too.
NHS / Carer / Disability / Student discount 15 %
Hope to see you there potheads!
💩 Please be aware that clay is messy! Please don’t wear your Sunday finest. Aprons and gloves are not provided – please bring them if you require them.💩
🙋♀️ The session is run by POTS N PINTS’ Anna – who has over 7 years ceramic experience; studying Craft at Brighton University and working for the legendary Brickett Davda, before retruning to Weymouth to set up her own ceramic studio and run workshops – POTS N PINTS. 🙋♀️
