Classes & Activities

Get in Touch with your Creative Side

At Hot Pot Pottery we love to get people in touch with their creative side and offer a range of fun pottery classes and activities for you to try.

Pottery Painting

Pottery Painting is available on a drop in basis in our Tea-Room & Gallery when they are open (Fri-Sun 11-4 Easter-End Oct – plus Thurs in summer hols). However, if you are a larger group it is always best to let us know your are coming to ensure we can fit you in (and pottery painting parties for 8 or more can be booked outside tea-room & gallery opening).

Pottery Trial Classes

Pottery Trial Classes are for those wanting to get their hands in the clay and give it a go (including wheel throwing). They are a lot of fun, include 3 clay techniques and last about 2 hours. They are perfect for groups of friends or families. We take 2-8 people in our studio and classes are bookable Thurs-Sun year-round (less availability on Sundays in winter) 11-1 or 2-4.

8 Week Pottery Classes

At certain times in the year (usually Spring/Autumn) we also offer 8 week Pottery Classes. Please Contact Us if you would like to register your interest.

Residential Pottery Classes

If you are staying with us at The House of Bread you might want to consider taking a few lessons while you are here and we can tailor residential lessons to suit you.

Bread Making & Cookery Classes

At certain time in the year we put on cookery or bread making courses.  Contact Us if you would like to find out more or keep an eye on our Latest News page!

Coming Soon!

We are also planning ‘Pizza & Pots’ in the near future where we will have an afternoon of  pottery making and burnishing followed by making pizza dough and cooking and eating the pizzas together while our pots fire off in the embers. Pots can be picked up the next morning and while this is not as robust as a biscuit firing it will still give a lovely finish to the pots you make. Please note: this will be a summer-time activity as we will be cooking and eating outside!


In terms of payment, we prefer CASH if possible as we are no longer allowed to share the cost of providing card payment facilities with customers.
