On this fun and exciting 3-day ceramics course, you will get to make your own clay bug house for your garden or yard.

You can decide if you want your bugs to live in a grand house or a fairy house with windows and a wonky chimney! You will draw out your design and then work in clay to build your creation.

Over the 3 days, you will learn lots of different hand-building techniques in clay such as rolling out, slab building, and modelling to build and decorate your bughouse. You might choose to decorate it with clay leaves or model bugs and butterflies to stick on.
When you are happy with your clay house you will add colour using slips and underglazes.

It will then need to be fired in our kiln ready for you to come in and collect 2 to 3 weeks after the course finishes. It will then be ready to go out into your garden to make a fantastic home for bugs and mini-beasts.
