GPTD Clay Kit

GPTD Clay Kit


Take part in your OWN Great Pottery Make-at-Home Challenge


  • Order your clay
  • Take up five One ball Clay challenges (which each relate to themes in the show )
  • Select & return any creations for firing (optional, terms apply, charged separately per piece)


Each pack contains 5 balls of clay, enough for 5 projects/ weeks. This gives you wonderful flexibility to:-

  • create fun and exotic stuff  which can be embellished with acrylic paints, feathers, bells, beads... etc - then varnished with PVA glue
  • OR to create beautiful functional pieces - which are both dishwasher proof and microwave safe



  • this is a special type of AirDry clay which can be fired. Not all AirDry clays can be fired.
  • The firing process takes the work to over 1200C, which creates all sorts of pressures in the kiln. It requires more technical skills : 9yrs+ guideline. Please follow making instructions as mistakes may damage other work and the kiln.
