All experience sessions need to be booked at least 24 hours in advance and run all week. Gift Vouchers are available -they make fab gifts


See our list of Pottery Classes, these also make fabulous gifts 


A fun introduction to working with clay


You will start the session by rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in to throwing some pots on the wheel. You will get tips and tution along the way and time to have a go by yourself.

This is followed by some hand building using the traditional coil or slab method of pot building. Tution is given and you then you are given as much time as you need to create your piece, with as much or as little help as you need.

The session lasts around 2.5 hours but you can take longer, there is no time limit on the time you take to finish your hand built masterpiece.
