Unleash your inner potter by having a go at hand building or throwing clay on a wheel with The Clay Team. Get inspired by exploring the Laing’s permanent art displays from 15th century to the present day.

This is a free drop-in event, as part of Hey Clay and Get Creative festival. *For a charge of £5, your make can be fired and glazed for collection from the Laing about three weeks later. This event is likely to be popular with places allocated on a first come first served basis. N.B. *The Clay Team’s drop-in event will only take place 7-9pm*.
