In ancient neolithic times, pottery makers would use local clay from streams to create their pots. Once formed into the desired plate, glass, pot, utensil and more, a bonfire was created to act as a highly unpredictable kiln!
Join archaeologist Dr. Fiona Haughey on Tuesday 7 August, 2.30pm - 4.30pm on the Riversteps in front of the Globe Theatre for a pottery workshop with a difference.
Don't miss this hands on workshop, where you will get the chance to create your own pottery ready to be fired on Firing on the Foreshore, on Saturday 1 September, where the bonfire kiln will be extinguished by the incoming tide, leaving your beautiful ceramics behind.
You will learn about techniques such as coiling, pinching and shaping, and you will be able to create whatever you'd like, be it a small pot, decorate a tile or even mould a monster, ready to be fired by the river this September.
