Postponed experiences

Genuinely so so sorry we’re not going to be able to welcome you to the Pottery in November :( If you have an Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class or Potter’s Wheel Course scheduled for the Lockdown period, please rest assured your experience is safe with us and we look forward to meeting you when you are able to visit – no matter how far in the future that might be.

Pots in the post

If you were able to visit us in the Autumn and paid P+P, we are still intending to post your creations out to you during Lockdown. It may take us a little longer to process your work but please be patient and we’ll email you once they are on their way.

Collecting finished pots

We’ve been operating a non-contact collection system which has worked brilliantly! We’ll continue to use this system once your masterpieces have emerged from the kiln. Again, as our staff have been furloughed, it might take a little longer but we will message you with instructions once they are ready.

And finally…

Although we are currently unable to make pots with you lovely lot, please consider our Potter’s Wheel Experience Vouchers. Christmas is just around the corner and what better way than to treat a loved one by gifting the gift of pottery making!

Stay safe & take care.

A few weeks back we were contacted by a young videographer and photographer called George Nash. He asked if he could visit to shoot some footage to add to his burgeoning portfolio of photographs and moving image.

We were instantly struck by the professionalism of his approach and the initiative he’d demonstrated in doing so.

George spent a busy Saturday morning in March with us filming and photographing our customers and staff in action. He also brought along his drone to get a bird’s eye view of the Pottery and surrounding Herefordshire landscape.

George was very easy to work with, putting ourselves and more importantly our customers at ease as he moved around the studio, capturing large and small interactions. He demonstrated a really good eye for composition and worked very hard to capture the ‘right’ images.

We are so impressed not only with the results, but the speed in which he delivered the finished work. We think he’s captured the vibe and environment we strive for perfectly. Well done George!

George can be contacted on all the usual social media platforms:

With all the usual honeymoon destinations beyond reach, a lot of newly weds are opting to spend their post wedding days holidaying right here in the UK.

Emma and Neil are no exception and spent their mini-moon touring the country, stopping off in the Shire to indulge in a spot of pottery!

We wish them a long and happy marriage :)

We believe everybody can learn how to make a pot on the potter’s wheel in one or two goes – honest! Once you understand the principle and the forces at work, it’s then just a case of practice practice practice!

Which is why we offer veterans of our one day and two day Potter’s Wheel Courses the opportunity to sign up for future courses at half price!

We have a growing number of potter’s wheel enthusiasts who regularly attend and in doing so have become very competent makers.

We ran a Weekend event in September filled exclusively with returning potter’s – just look at the amazing fired and glazed results!

Amy is a BIG fan of the ‘1 second everyday’ app which encourages users to document a second of each day as a micro video.

I wonder what will be the focus of today’s short film!
