A Glasgow pottery studio has teamed up with a local zine library for a pottery painting workshop to help Glaswegians ‘bring their ideas to life’.

The hands-on workshop is a partnership between independent BYOB pottery studio The Craft Pottery and Glasgow Zine Library.

The event takes place 4-7pm on Sunday June 30 at The Craft Pottery studio on Washington Street and tickets are on a sliding scale of £0-£20.

It’s set to be an afternoon of creative fun, with the workshop exploring the library’s collection of zines. Attendees can make their own zines using an array of materials and painting pottery.

Crafters will have the choice between a mug, plate or bowl – and have plenty of time to turn their crockery into one that’s unique to them.

Glasgow Zine Library, a self-publishing library and community space based in Govanhill, runs a varied programme of events within its space.

The Craft Pottery is an independent, bring-your-own-bottle pottery painting studio which has welcomed over 60,000 people through its doors.

It’s a simple concept where customers from couples to corporate groups paint pottery in any style they want while enjoying each other’s company.

Studio Director at The Craft Pottery, Beth Hoad, said: “We are so thrilled to partner with Glasgow Zine Library for this workshop.

“It'll be a lovely opportunity for Glaswegians to explore their creativity and see their ideas take shape through both zine-making and pottery painting.

“Community and creativity go hand in hand and we do not take enough time to indulge our creative side. That’s what The Craft Pottery is all about: engaging with the artist inside and creating something, no matter skill level - and enjoying the company of others.

“We love doing workshops like this, where attendees can take inspiration and learn from talented people – they are a great opportunity to find a new creative outlet, and fall in love with it!”
