Each pot made on a potter’s wheel by a first time participant is totally unique. The shape is as individual to its maker as their very own fingerprint – everybody holds their hands in a different way.
Once participants have experienced the joys of making a pot, they are offered the opportunity to further individualise their freshly thrown ware by decorating with coloured slips and underglazes.
The variety of approach to colour and theme is awe inspiring. Just take a look at the multitude of effects (and shapes) of these recently fired & glazed customer creations.

Hats off to all the lovely families, couples and individuals who took a creative journey in clay with us over the Easter break. We salute your creativity and flair for the mucky stuff!
Good work on the mugs, plates, dragons, owls, elephants, cats, dogs, ducks, fruits, gnomes and pretty much the blooming kitchen sink!

At the beginning of April we took part in a national clay event organised by The Crafts Council and BBC Get Creative.
Hey Clay! aspired to give people the opportunity to get creative with clay at free pottery workshops in venues all over the UK. The event ran from Friday 7 – Sunday 9 April 2017, and we welcomed near on 100 participants to our studio – all of them making a pot on the potter’s wheel.
We created a photo album of each day:
Friday 7th April
Sat 8th April
Sun 9th April
FREE potter’s wheel event 7-9 April 2017 as part of Hey Clay 2017!
Fancy wrestling a lump of spinning mud? Or maybe you just need to finally cross pottery off your bucket list? Whatever your motivation, we are inviting individuals and families the opportunity to make a pot on the potter’s wheel for free.
Take your creation away on the day to dry and paint at home or leave it with us to be fired and glazed at cost. 15 min time slots available all day. Pre-booking essential. FREE parking.
Tel: 01531 633886 or email email@example.com to reserve a place.
Alan is a talented local artist and professional tinkerer who constructs his quirky art objects from salvaged materials and found objects. Every so often, he’ll book into the Pottery to create some clay figures to incorporate into his upcycled art.
We love his enthusiasm and creative flair and this little steam engine demonstrates oodles of both. Wouldn’t want to mess with the drivers though!
