pottery class & children's parties

We are Pauline Hoeboer en Jeroen van Alphen, together we are 'Hoeboer Pottery'. Our pottery in The Hague is a place where young and old are welcome to learn and explore every aspect of clay, firing, glaze and ceramics. Read all about our classes, workshops and children's parties. 


For boys and girls of the age of 10 and older we found a new subject for birthday parties: space aliens, challenging for skills and imagination.

Trial-Workshop 'pottery for beginners'

If you'd like to try some pottery on the wheel, but you don't have the time to follow a 14-lesson course, this may be what you're looking for! A one-time pottery workshop that has everything in it from 'wedging'and 'centering' to the actual throwing on the wheel. After an introduction and the necessary instructions, we all trow a few cups or bowls. The best ones we save and we decorate them with coloured slib. After a few days of drying, we glaze and fire the cups and after about two weeks they are ready to be picked up.

We have taken measures to comply with COVID-19 regulations. After the current lockdown we expect to take up activities from February 9th. We reduced the number of participants so we can keep distance, we clean seats and tools before and after workshops and we keep windows open for ventilation. (wear a sweater or vest)
Participants are requested to wear a face mask when entering or walking around in the studio, but not when sitting and working on the wheel.

Level: This workshop is for absolute beginners.

Time : workshops take place on Saturday afternoons and nights and take 2,5 hrs including welcome with tea and coffee.

Prize: the workshop costs € 60,- per person, including materials, glazing, firing and coffe/tea. There is a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 participants

Language: you are welcome if you understand either Dutch or English.
