Times/availability may also vary according to our schedule or on Special Event Days/Weekends.

Get In Touch With The Clay

Our pottery trial classes are great fun and take place in our cosy studio. They are usually bookable in advance Thurs-Sun 10-12 or 2-4 (less availability some weeks depending on our schedule or Special Events).

Our classes are designed for those who have not had any experience with clay and provide a chance to try it out in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of help and encouragement. Just don’t wear your best clothes!

They are perfect for young and old (suitable for children 5 years old and above), families or groups and are a great way to celebrate a birthday or hen do.

We take from 2-8 people in our classes, however if you are on your own then it is always worth checking if we have others booked who you can join.

Classes are approx. 2 hours allowing a chance to try 3 pottery techniques (wheel throwing, pinch pots and working with slabs of clay).

At the end you can choose to leave up to 4 of your favourite pieces with us for firing and glazing with your choice of colour from our house glazes.

Price

Pottery trial classes cost £30.00 per person including materials and glazing and firing (we fire every 5-6 weeks). The price includes the option to leave up to 4 favourite pieces per person for glazing & firing. Extra pieces will be charged at £3.00 per piece.

Collection/Delivery

Collection of pottery is possible in person if you live locally or if a firing is due while you are here. If delivery is required it is a one off cost of £16.50 to send a box of pots to one UK address.

If some of your party are doing Pottery Painting as well, then the delivery cost can be shared across both activities.

Booking Your Class

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. Visit our Group Meals page for more details.

Payment

In terms of payment, we prefer cash if possible on the day as we are no longer allowed to share the cost of providing card payment facilities with customers. We hope you understand.

Dogs

From our perspective well-behaved dogs are welcome in our studio but other people in the class must also be happy to have dogs with them so please do ask if you are bringing your dog.
