Adult Hand Building Classes      From £20

Our classes are taught on a 1:1 basis, unless of course you are coming as a couple or as part of a group. They are relaxed, fun & informal. All are suitable for beginners, but can also be adapted for more advanced potters.


The hand building session's must be booked in advance, and take around 2-3 hours,unless otherwise stated. However you can take as long as you need to make your creation.

We use Earthenware & Stone Ware Clay's that are fired in the kiln.


You may already have experience and wish go it alone or you may just want to have a ball of clay & experiment alone(in this case you can just turn up on the day).



Any creations made can be fired, simply leave  them us for aprox two weeks, once dry & fired  you can return to paint them in the studio. (fire & paint fee £3.50 per item, unless otherwise stated)


Alternively you can take your pieces home with you to air dry.


Dont forget, all our classes are available as gift Vouchers-they make fabulous presents
