Pottery Studio

Here at Emily Charlotte, we have built ourselves a cosy pottery studio!

We are not only making our own handmade ceramics which are sold in store, but we also offer pottery sessions and workshops!

These are all hand building sessions (for now!) where you can learn the core techniques of hand building ceramics:

pinch, coil and slab pots!

Unleash your creativity and discover the joy of pottery with us. We offer a range of exciting experiences and products for all ages and occasions:

You can book a single session (£22.50) or a block of 4 sessions at a discounted rate (£80).

These session run on Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10am - 12pm and 1pm - 3pm.

 Pottery Painting Tips!

Prep the surface!
Before you start painting, ensure your ceramic piece is clean, dry, and free from dust or contaminants.

Pencil will burn off!
Any pencil drawings on your pot will burn off in the kiln, you won’t be able to see it when it’s been fired! You will only see the glaze (ceramic paint).

Just add water!
Give your underglaze a good stir before use and if it’s too thick, you can always add a little bit of water to thin them out.

Light to Dark!
We always recommend starting with lighter colours and gradually moving towards darker ones. It’s easier to correct mistakes when working this way!

Layer up!
The outcome of your design will depend on how many layers of underglaze you apply. If you want a translucent wash of colour, we recommend 1 coat. If you want a solid block of colour, we recommend 3 coats. Allow layers to dry first before applying the next.

Mix them up!
You can mix your glazes to make any colour you want!

Made a mistake?
If you make a mistake, gently wipe away the wet underglaze with a damp sponge or cloth. If the underglaze has already dried, it can either be scraped away with a pin tool or sanded off with sandpaper.

Fire away!
Once your piece is finished, it’s ready to fire. When it comes out of the kiln, the colours will be much brighter and more vibrant! They will have a lovely glossy finish too.

No dishwashers please!
Your pot is now ready to use, but please be sure to hand wash your item. We want them to last a lifetime!

We look forward to seeing you in the studio! 🙂
