Come and learn how to make a terracotta irrigation pot with one of NECCHi’s Artist's-in-Residence! These pots are designed to be buried in a garden plot and filled with water. Because the pots are low-fired, the water gradually seeps out of the pot and into the surrounding soil, acting as a simple irrigation system.
Ria will take you through making your pot using hand-building techniques, so you will also be coming away with some basic ceramic skills. This is an easy-going and fun workshop, however places are strictly limited. If you are no longer able to attend the event, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can pass your ticket on to another keen participant!
