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!

Our Junior Content Producer Apprentice Katie has designed a fab new sticker.

How do you get your hands on one of these? Simple! Enroll on one of our incredibly popular Introduction To The Potter’s Wheel classes and you’ll be issued with one on completion of your experience.

Here’s what Katie said about the design:

“I thoroughly enjoyed designing these stickers. I wanted  to capture the beautiful Herefordshire countryside surrounding the Pottery in an eye catching design customers would be happy and proud to display. I printed the prototypes at home on my illustration commissions printer just to see what they looked like. Once I was happy with the design, I sent it off to the printers for an initial print run of 5000! – I’m so looking forward to seeing how customers respond – who doesn’t love a sticker!”

We love our Pottery Garden, particularly when the Peonies have bloomed! Such a bountiful haven for mini beasts and wildlife.

A little preparation for a BIG tile panel project at Grangefield Primary School in Bishops Cleeve Gloucestershire. Jon worked with the whole school over two days to construct a giant ceramic version of the school’s logo. Each child contributed a tile and the composite image was commissioned to celebrate the school’s 20th anniversary.

Must say it’s great to be back on the road working in Primary Schools and early years!
