BYOB with no corkage

Not every crafting experience will stick in the mind.

Happily, today’s Big Deal on a Make Your Own Mug session means you will take home a mug full of memories that will come flooding back every time you have a cuppa.

Contemporary pottery studio

This Big Deal from Spin Pottery Glasgow will take place within Bella’s Cakes tucked away in Finnieston’s arty Hidden Lane.

The session will be led by Leah, who is a passionate pottery enthusiast and patient tutor and will guide fledgling potters on their journey towards becoming Master Mug Makers.

The offer is for one person to join a two hour group session in the pottery, a vanilla cupcake plus your choice of filter tea, coffee or herbal tea is also included.

Using a variety of hand-building techniques, Leah will show the group members how to make their own ceramic mugs from scratch.

Sessions run on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm until 8.30pm on the following selected dates:

3rd, 17th and 31st July

14th and 28th August

4th of September

Your mug will be ready for collection three to four weeks after class. Once fired, the mugs will be glazed to show the natural clay colour and they will be fully functional.

All instruction, materials, finishing glaze and firing costs included in price.

Open to anyone aged eleven and above, this is a hands-on introduction to clay table work.

Relaxed and informal

The sessions are relaxed and informal. The emphasis is on the experience being fun and sociable as well as informative.

However, you just might discover your new favourite hobby.

Incidentally, this is a BYOB establishment with no corkage so guests are welcome to bring along a bottle of wine and get creative. 

Happy crafters

Leah’s Facebook page has lots of testimonials from happy guests who have enjoyed their pottery experiences:

‘Great fun… Hello, new favourite obsession! This place is a really good way to spend a couple of spare hours – with, or without a wee glass of BYO wine. Very laid back, extremely reasonable, well-run wee place. Excellent way to get some personalized gifts too.’

‘Just did a Make Your Own Mug workshop and LOVED IT! Leah is such a great and patient teacher. Can’t wait to come back ’

‘Made my own mug at a class tonight and had so much fun! Can’t wait to go back and paint it.’

Take some time out

Everyone’s life is increasingly busy. This Big Deal with Leah at Spin Pottery is the perfect way to take some time out and get hands-on with the ancient craft of pottery.

Of course, it would also make a very thoughtful gift. Or even an unusual date.

As we mentioned, Spin Pottery has a BYOB policy which means it would make for an inexpensive yet unique night out with friends or partners.

And, since you get to take home your one-of-a-kind mug, this is one experience that you will remember every time you have a brew.

What other 5pm bookers like about this deal...

My partner and myself were big fans of the Great British Pottery Challenge when it was on. This deal gives us a chance to try it out for ourselves and a birthday treat/surprise for my partner.
