Today marks an opening up of covid regulations, choices can be made. At Firefly the team feel more comfortable wearing their masks and for you to also do so when around them, so please continue to respect that. We are happy for you to remove your masks once seated in the studio space. This practice has thus far provided a relaxed, infection free environment for us all. Covid isolation within a small working team like ours would cause short term business closure, something we need your continued support to avoid. Sending you thanks 🌈 sprinkles and ☀️with the help of this lovely pot! #covidupdate #maskon #supportsmallbusiness #rainbow #pottery #sunnymonday ... See MoreSee Less

Wednesday 18th July 6:30-9:30pm
Your pots will take approximately 3-5 weeks to dry and fire

You book your 3rd session once the first firing has taken place, to come back, or order a takeaway kit and online class to decorate and glaze! You can experiment with underglaze techniques and have access to our range of crystal glazes and artisan glazes.

The course is great value, giving you a broad experience of ceramic techniques, at just £95 for the sessions including all materials and firing!
