Make your own beautiful ceramic art at our Brighton studio
This is what we're most known for, and we've got pretty good at it now!
Please don't feel like you have to stick genitals on your mug if you don't want to! Body positivity is about making you feel happy about your body. It is definitively not about making you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed!
That said, ears are really hard, noses less so!
So far, nearly everyone has made a mug, and that works really well, but if you want to branch out to jugs, bowls or butter dishes, just let us know in advance!
The half-day workshop is a little bit more pricey because in order to fit everything into the time available we have to roll and cut your clay in advance, to give you time to do some anatomical sculpting.
I recently visited Alice's lovely studio and had the joyous experience of making a bespoke mug with expert support and guidance.
Alice was such a fabulous teacher; very attentive, clear and positive! I made a really beautiful mug and I'm over the moon with the end result.
Definitely contributes to a heightened sense of body confidence! Hot Fox Pottery, thank you so much!
Once you've made your celebratory creation, you'll have the option to choose from our range of dipping glazes, or if you are on the full-day course you can choose one of our underglaze transfer patterns for your mug (shown above), or could even paint it yourself.
