Ceramics Taster Day: Group Booking for 4 People
Sat, 9 Sep 2017, 10:45
Ceramics Taster Days are hands-on sessions providing insight into a focused area of ceramics and pottery production. Each Ceramics Taster Day includes opportunities to build, adapt and embellish several pots.
Group bookings can also be made by appointment. Please contact Sunken Studio.
Group bookings are a great way to celebrate a special event or reward great work. We design tasters to introduce beginners and enhancers to a range of pottery techniques. All sessions are fully hands-on and result in great pots to keep or share. We strive to ensure your event is an exciting and enjoyable experience. Our ceramics workshops make great retirement, birthday and leaving gifts, as well as alternative hen parties and away day events for small teams.
We can accommodate groups of four people in our ceramics studio in Leeds. Group bookings enable family, friends and colleagues to choose their own focus from our suite of Ceramics Taster Day Packages. Download our Menu: Ceramics Tasters 2017 for further information on the sessions available.
Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners and anyone wanting to refine existing skills.
Refreshments and lunch
We like to add to your handmade experience with produce sourced from local bakers and independent caterers.
Finished works, fired and glazed (where needed), will be available for collection within 28 days after the session. If you are unable to collect we can arrange for your work to be delivered for £10 per address.
Do I need to bring my own food and drink?
Tea, coffee and snacks are provided at all our Mini Tasters and Short Courses. We allow 15 minutes at the beginning of each session for arrivals, introductions and refreshments - you can also use this time to grab a bite to eat. Feel free to bring a meal - we will provide plates and cutlery and have a lovely dining room for you to use.
Taster Days include refreshments and an informal lunch. We tend to break for lunch at 13:15-13:45. All food is sourced from local bakers and independent caterers and served in the dining room. If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know. Food is not consumed in the studio.
Do I need to prepare anything?
No, although it’s standard workshop practice to wear flat, sturdy shoes with covered toes. Please protect your feet. Rings and long fingernails can be problematic when working with clay - please consider this when booking.
Is there an age limit?
All events are for groups of adults ages 18+.
What is access like?
Sunken Studio is housed in a period property with steep steps leading into the property, and down to the studio. Unfortunately there is no lift access. If you have any concerns about specific access requirements please contact Sunken Studio.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We are based in Roundhay, Leeds. We are close to www.roundhaypark.org.uk and easily accessible by car and public transport. To get here by public transport catch the number 2 or 12 and alight at Street Lane/Shaftsbury Avenue (W or SE bound). The studio is a 2 minute walk from Street Lane.
There is ample on-street parking.
I’m not local, can you recommend accommodation nearby?
We are currently reviewing places to stay and will provide more recommendations soon. In the meantime, there are several local www.airbnb.co.uk listings to fit a range of budgets. If you fancy staying somewhere a bit more central consider www.arthostel.org.uk - it’s the first social enterprise Art Hostel in Leeds.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
