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.

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!

No Biscuits in there Ted!

As long as our other guests are happy, we have no qualms entertaining four legged potters! Ted happens to be one of our regulars but has never thrown a pot on the wheel before!

Ted’s mum Leonie and her mum Heather participated in our Potter’s Wheel Introduction class and made some very presentable pots…but we think Ted aced them all!

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.
