Leon’s one of regular and valued customers. Every Tuesday he spends an hour or so with his support worker or mum at the Pottery making and decorating pots on the wheel.
For the past seven weeks he’s been working on a single, ‘£100′ pot. Each visit is spent making a separate section on the wheel which is then joined to the one made the previous week.
Over seven weeks, the pot has grown organically and sprouted several handles and palm tree additions. The last couple of weeks have been spent painting the sculpture in coloured under glazes and slips. It emerged resplendent from the kiln a few weeks ago and we think it’s brill! Here’s a link to a short video showing the pot in all it’s 3D glory: Young man with aspergers makes amazing pottery
Boosted by the success, Leon is onto his next project – a ‘£200′ pot!
It’s always an extremely productive day for participants on our one day potter’s wheel workshops. Everybody makes loads and loads of work.
At the day comes to a close, we encourage participants to choose their favourite pieces to be fired and glazed.
The rejected ones are plucked from their boards and piled high in a collaborative tower before being wedged into a soft lump ready to be made into pots again and again and again!
We just love this colourful coil-pot made by a hen at one of our fabulous pottery hen party sessions.

Three generations of the same family were all in the same place at the same time here at the Pottery in the Summer hols. No mean feat when you consider some family members live in Singapore.
The eighteen participants each created and painted a pinch-pot sculpture.

We loved working with these newly weds who apart from making some super pots, introduced us to the concept of the Mini-moon.
After all the extravagance and cost of the big day, more and more couples are opting for a shorter honeymoon break.
This couple worked with us on the Tuesday and then went foraging with Wild Food UK on Wednesday before heading back to Harrow later in the week.
If you and your partner have something to celebrate and fancy getting creative with clay then please take a look at our pottery projects specially designed for couples.
