Hey Clay! is a national celebration of clay taking place over the weekend of 17-19 May that gives everyone the chance to unleash their inner potter.

You are invited to join staff and students from our award-winning School of Art, Design and Architecture on Saturday 18 May to experience and explore the joy of making your own objects.  

Using your hands, found objects and stamps you will learn to roll clay, join it, add texture and colour it resulting in producing your own creative object. Once completed your piece will be and fired and glazed by us all ready to be collected during our end of year annual Degree shows in early June. At the time you collect and delight in your own glazed creations you will also have the chance to view BA (Hons) graduating students work, talk to staff about the University's creative studying opportunities and view our fabulous making workshops.

Registration is essential via the above link as there are limited spaces. Please note that this event is open to over 18s only.
