Pottery & Pints

Make your own mug at our fun, beginner-friendly pottery workshops. 

Join ceramicists Naomi Stokes and Meredith Mason at Bristol's award-winning brewery, Wiper and True, in Old Market for a fun workshop of pottery and a pint!

You'll be guided step-by-step through the process of making your own slab-built ceramic mug. You don't need any previous clay experience as everything will be fully explained on the day.

What to expect:

→ Learn the fundamentals of slab building pottery
→ Make your own clay beer mug with the help of professional ceramicists
→ Enjoy a drink from Wiper and True's taproom
→ Collect your mugs 2-4 weeks later after they've been fired and glazed

Your ticket also includes 15% off drinks from the Wiper and True bar.

After a brief demonstration from your experts, you'll be left to flex your new skills! Practise the fundamentals of slab building: rolling out clay, slip and scoring, and decorative techniques to finish off with your personal and unique design.

Your finished item will be left with your hosts who will fire and glaze your work. You will be contacted to collect your mugs from your host within 2-4 weeks.

After your experience, you are welcome to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and a plant-filled oasis beer garden.

Please note that this event is only suitable for adults aged 18+.
