Join the team at Muddy Fingers for an afternoon of clay at the Laing Art Gallery. The session will start with a short demonstration on how to assemble and decorate your bird bath then it’s over to you to get creative. There’ll be lots of stamps and mark making tools or you can draw your own patterns. 

The bath will be in the shape of a shallow leaf and it will be raised off the ground with a foot ring. The finished size will be about 30cm long. You will have a choice of white glaze with glass in the bottom of the leaf or iron oxide with glass. Both of which can be seen on the afternoon. 

Your pots will then be taken back to Muddy Fingers HQ to be dried, fired, glazed then fired again. They will then be dropped back off at the Laing for you to pick up around 4 weeks later.
