Throwing pots at a pottery trial class Pottery painting

At Hot Pot Pottery we love to get people in touch with their creative side! So, whatever the occasion, our classes and activities are a great way to get creative and enjoy time with friends or family.

Pottery trial classes

We run our pottery trial classes in our studio. They are possible most days, and year-round, but need to be booked in advance. They give an introduction to basic pottery techniques (including wheel throwing) and last 2 hours. They are great fun and are perfect for groups of 2 – 8 people. Visit our Pottery trial classes page to find out more. if your class coincides with our glazing and firing week you can also book an extra session (usually on a Wednesday) to give glazing a go).

Pottery painting

Pottery painting is available in our gallery and tea-room whenever it is open and sometimes by arrangement for groups at other times (particularly in winter when the tea-room is closed). Pottery painting is a great way to enjoy an hour or two and produce a gift for yourself or for others. Brilliant for when the weather isn’t so good or for children’s parties or hen do’s! Visit our Pottery painting page to find out more.

Evening classes and courses

We run our 6 week afternoon and evening courses in Spring each year. Visit our Evening classes and courses page to find out more.

Tailored workshops

At Hot Pot Pottery we believe in the therapeutic effects of working with clay and have been working with some charities and organisations to provide bespoke clay workshops to benefit their members. To find out more, visit our Tailored workshops page.
