Functional Pottery 

led by Jo Koegh 

A range of simple techniques will be demonstrated for you to then test out together and have a go at making a function piece of pottery. 

1.30pm - 2.30pm OR 3pm - 4pm

You can come to one, or more, or all of the sessions but capacity is limited so booking is essential. 

Spaces on the sessions are limited to a maximum of five families per session. We are unable to take booking from just adults wishing to attend.

Some sessions will involve the use of tools. It's the accompanying parent(s), guardian or carer to decide what they are happy for their children to undertake. Guidance and further information will be available on the day.

Show Me How is part of Market Town, a programme of commissions and critical debate that sets out to re-imagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets.
