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 classes and pottery painting sessions. Our pre-bookable pottery activities are great fun for all ages and we can also design bespoke Party Packages for birthday or hen do celebrations or Corporate Events.

Pottery Painting Sessions

For all ages. Pottery Painting Sessions are pre-bookable in our cosy studio usually Thurs-Sun 10-12 or 2-4 (with less availability some weeks depending on our schedule/Special Events). To run a Pottery Painting Session we need at least 4 people (and can seat up to 22). If you are a smaller group or on your own it is always worth contacting us to see if others have booked.

NB: we can also offer Mobile Pottery Painting for larger groups who wish to celebrate elsewhere.

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 (including wheel throwing). They are a lot of fun, include 3 clay techniques and last approx. 2 hours. They are perfect for groups of friends or families.

We take 2-8 people in our classes and they are pre-bookable usually Thurs-Sun 10-12 or 2-4 (with less availability some weeks depending on our schedule/Special Events). Click Here to find out more….

Combining Pottery Activities

If some of your group want to give the pottery trial class a go and some pottery painting, it is all in the same studio so it is not a problem. We can discuss combining activities when you book.

Food & Drink

We will usually have our coffee machine on during your pottery class/painting session so you can order tea/coffee or cold drinks.

If you are a larger group of 4 or more (perhaps celebrating an event) then you may be interested in pre-bookingGroup Meal with us to be served before/after your pottery activities. Click Here to find out more…
