Sarah and her family celebrated her birthday in potter’s wheel style!
The group took advantage of our fabulous 1.5hr shared potter’s wheel experience and made some super pots and shapes. We’ll fire and glaze their pottery creations, ready for collection from the studio in a few weeks time. The pots will serve as a permanent and unique reminder of her special day.
Happy Birthday Sarah!
Staff from the School of Biological Sciences, Bristol University descended on the Pottery in August, (all 18 of them) for a spot of pottery team building.
Participants built a collaborative jug, took turns on eight potter’s wheels and made some intricate pottery models before enjoying a buffet lunch in The Potting Tent Marquee.
If you would like to reward your staff or our planning a unique works away day for your colleagues, please take a look at our page dedicated to team-building.
Leon’s one of regular and valued customers. Every Tuesday he spends an hour or so with his support worker or mum at the Pottery making and decorating pots on the wheel.
For the past seven weeks he’s been working on a single, ‘£100′ pot. Each visit is spent making a separate section on the wheel which is then joined to the one made the previous week.
Over seven weeks, the pot has grown organically and sprouted several handles and palm tree additions. The last couple of weeks have been spent painting the sculpture in coloured under glazes and slips. It emerged resplendent from the kiln a few weeks ago and we think it’s brill! Here’s a link to a short video showing the pot in all it’s 3D glory: Young man with aspergers makes amazing pottery
Boosted by the success, Leon is onto his next project – a ‘£200′ pot!

We loved working with these newly weds who apart from making some super pots, introduced us to the concept of the Mini-moon.
After all the extravagance and cost of the big day, more and more couples are opting for a shorter honeymoon break.
This couple worked with us on the Tuesday and then went foraging with Wild Food UK on Wednesday before heading back to Harrow later in the week.
If you and your partner have something to celebrate and fancy getting creative with clay then please take a look at our pottery projects specially designed for couples.
