4 pots stacked on top of one another to form a sculpture taken from a birds eye view

Amazing work produced by a mother and daughter combo who attended our two day potter’s wheel course in May 2021.

Day one is spent making lots and lots and lots of pots on the wheel – you’ll be amazed at how productive you can be once you’ve got the hang of things! The pots are left to go leather hard overnight so they are primed and ready to work on the next day.

Day two is all about trimming, turning, assembling and adding colour! Phew! We love the splatter technique – used to great effect here by Elizabeth. Jean decided to combine all of her thrown pots into a magnificent structure – brilliant! Well done ladies

Our weekend and two day courses take place once or twice a month and cost £280 per person.

We loved working with these guys!

The fellas have all been mates since their university days at Nottingham Trent University and once or twice a year meet up to spend some time together.

This year it was Pottery in Herefordshire. Yay!

We ask our guests to bring an apron or at least wear old clothes when they join us for a course or class. Although the clay is unlikely to stain, customers can get a little splattered – glad rags are definitely out of the question! It’s always interesting to see the variety and interpretation inspired by our ‘dress code’ …best one has to be the dressing gown last year!
Alternatively, you can hire an apron & towel from us for just £5
