During the Covid-19 Pandemic we have closely followed Government and Leisure Industry advice to keep Covid-19 risks as low as possible on-site. CLICK HERE to see our current information. 


Hot Pot Pottery is ON THE MOVE (just down the road). HOWEVER: we will be CLOSED for classes and activities until at least Sept 2022 due to renovations needed at the new place on both the studio and house.

Below is a taste of what we were offering and when we re-open we will have lots of new ideas & activities as well. So watch this space!

Learn A New Skill With an 8 Week Pottery Course

As well as our POTTERY TRIAL CLASSES & ONE DAY WHEEL THROWING WORKSHOPS, we also run longer pottery courses which go into more depth and cover a wider range of pottery techniques. Usually on a Monday afternoon or evening (2-4pm or 6-8pm).

What Should I Wear?

NOT your best clothes, clay is messy but does wash out! We provide aprons (although you might want to bring your own), towels and hand-wash facilities.

We advise taking off large rings and bracelets, trying long hair back and rolling up sleeves. Also, long fingernails are not helpful to you when working with clay!

How To Know What To Do!

All our classes are great fun and we provide full demos and help and advice throughout each class.

However, before you start the course there are two on-line videos it is worth watching. There are: AN INTRODUCTION TO WHEEL THROWING and PINCH POTS & TILES.

At The End Of The Course

Once decorated pieces have been clear glazed and fired for you at the end of the course we will have an evening display of pots which we will admire with a few drinks and nibbles.

Class Costs & Payment

Our 8 week courses cost £290.00 which includes all teaching, materials, kit, firing, refreshments and chat. Payment will be required on-line into our account in advance.
