Due to recent Government announcements Hot Pot Pottery will be re-opening from Dec 2nd 2020.

In all that we do, to keep Covid risks as low as possible, we are registered with Visit England’s ‘Good to Go’ Scheme.

Get In Touch With Your Creative Side

At Hot Pot Pottery we love to get people in touch with their creative side and offer fun Pottery Trial Classes, Pottery Painting Kits for hire and One Day Wheel Throwing Workshops (monthly).

NB: Regular times/availability may vary due to Special Events.

Pottery Painting Kit Hire

Due to Covid-19, at the moment we can’t offer pottery painting on site but we can offer pottery painting kits for hire which you can get creative with and enjoy at home or in your holiday accommodation. Perfect for all ages, weather and situations! Click Here to find out more….

Pottery Trial Classes

For age 5 and above. Pottery Trial Classes are for those wanting to get their hands in the clay and give it a go. They are a lot of fun, include 3 clay techniques (including a go on the wheel) and last approx. 2-2.5 hours (depending on class size). They are perfect for couples, friends or families.

We take 2-8 people in our classes (ideally in 2’s who don’t have to distance from one another and can share kit) and are bookable Thurs & Sat from 10.30am (booking essential). Click Here to find out more….

One Day Wheel Throwing Workshops

Approximately monthly we run one-day throwing workshops looking more in depth at throwing on the wheel and drying and decorating pieces in a small class size. Lunch included. Click here to find out more….

Combining Pottery Activities

If you are a group and some want to give the pottery trial class/wheel throwing a go and some want to hire a pottery painting kit, it is not a problem. We can discuss combining activities & deliveries when you book.

Food & Drink

We will usually have our coffee machine on during your pottery class so you can order tea/coffee or cold drinks to be served to your table.

Take-away muffins/cake/drinks can be pre-ordered with pottery painting kit hire or group meals can be added to pottery trial class bookings.

8 Week Pottery Classes – on hold

We also offer 8 week pottery courses (usually in Spring & Autumn). Click Here to find out more…

In terms of payment, we prefer CASH over card payment on the day if possible (unless on-line pre-payment is appropriate) as we can no longer share card payment charges customers. We hope you understand.

If paying here, social distancing, good ventilation, mask wearing and sanitising will be observed at the till.
