Pottery-Making

Fogo Clay Studio invites you to participate in pottery-making sessions

All Seven Seasons

1 – 8 persons
Available as half-day, full day or multi-day

 

Creating something with your hands is a meditative experience. With over 30 years of experience, potter Sarah Fulford leads classes for individuals or small groups that are adaptable to all levels, from beginner to advanced. Located in the community of Fogo, the Clay Studio sits on the edge of the water. The surrounding environment provides inspiration for the studio's glaze-colour palette, which includes shades such as sea glass, driftwood, and blueberry.

Your Fogo Clay Studio experience is completely customizable. Spend half-day or multi-day sessions in the studio, creating pieces by hand building or on the pottery wheel.  Shorter classes will give you enough time to create a mug or pot, while longer classes will allow you to explore, play with incorporating natural textures or developing something more complex. Younger participants can create a puffin whistle or hand-build the object of their choice. Should your time on Fogo Island come to an end before your work is ready to take home, the small team at Fogo Clay Studios will ensure your creations are glazed, fired, and safely shipped to you.

Private classes begin at $150 per hour for an individual, with some variation depending on group size and the length of the class. Please inquire with our Reservations Team prior to your visit should you require more information or wish to make a booking, or chat with our Guest Experiences Team once you've arrived.
