Relatively common throughout Roman Britain, head pots are found in many archaeological contexts from kitchen storage jars to the eternal resting place of cremated remains. In style they range from the elaborate and lifelike, through to the comic. Working on a preformed wheel-made pot you will create your own replica head pot.

The course fee includes the firing and return of your pot (UK only). *Additional fees if your pot requires international postage.

Maxium 10 people per session - book early to avoid disappointment.
