Ditch the office, bring the team and come and play with some clay at Hypmotive! This interactive and tactile workshop is great for rapport and team building fun. 

Come and learn from our experienced in-house potters the ancient and visceral art of pottery. You and your team will have the opportunity to decorate, with underglaze, a piece of hand made wheel thrown pottery that will be yours to keep and surely everyones favourite office mug. 

You will also be taken through the basics of making pottery on the wheel and will have the chance to roll up your sleeves, get your hands into some clay and make a pot yourself. 

This workshop is a great experience for those wanting to take their team out of the office space and into a creative environment where they can learn to work collaboratively and strengthen the work relations.
