Sign up now for one of our great summer workshops!  There’s something for everyone whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced potter, and something for all the family too!

Start by finding out what we have to offer at one of our free drop in sessions when you can have a look around the studio and get creative with some clay.  Children welcome.

  • Monday 8th July 10am-3pm
  • Saturday 13th July 11am-4pm

Then while you’re there sign up for one of our one day workshops.   They all run from 10am until 3pm and cost £35 for the day which  includes a generous supply of materials and firings. Numbers are limited to 8 per session (4 per session on throwing and turning workshops) so you can be assured of plenty of support from the experienced ceramics tutors.  You can also buy additional materials from us at low prices.  Pick up your work once its been fired, or alternatively come along to one of our glazing workshops and give it a professional finish.

Or, if you’re looking for something to entertain the children, we now have workshops especially for families.  So bring them along to have a great day playing with clay and bring the grandparents, aunts and uncles too!  One free child per fee paying adult, £15 each for additional children.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
