A beautiful decanter & goblets made on our Potter’s Wheel Weekend Course.

Matt made the amazing ‘splatter’ jug and Emma was responsible for the beautiful terracotta goblets – Teamwork makes the dream work!

Emma and Matt are regulars on our weekend events and in a very short space of time have acquired some mighty fine pottery skills. Well done you two!

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.

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!”

Newly weds Emily and Benjamin visited the pottery in August 2020 and took part in our Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel Class.

Due to pandemic, a honeymoon abroad was out of the question so the pair enjoyed a mini-moon tour of the UK instead.

We loved creating a memory with Emily & Benjamin and the wonderful pots they made on the potter’s wheel serve as a permanent reminder of those precious first few weeks of marriage.
