Want to learn a new, interesting skill?
Enjoy 2 sessions for £40 per person, build your work on the first Wednesday of the month and return on the third Wednesday of the month to decorate it with glazes, this allows time for drying and firing. The workshops run from 7pm-9pm. All tools and materials are provided.
These workshops are hand building with clay using methods such as pinch pot, coil and slab, (they are not throwing on a wheel workshops.) They are also specific projects on specific dates. If you cannot return on the allocated date to paint your work it will be clear glazed and fired for you. The list of Projects and dates will be posted on the Events page of the website.
The workshops are adult workshops (children’s clay workshop dates will be posted separately on the Events Page under Mini Potters Workshops).
Full payment is taken at time of booking. Maximum of 4 people per table.
Frequently Asked Questions...
Do you charge a studio fee?
Yes, Studio Fee is £3 per person painting. (Party prices include Studio Fee.) Studio Fee covers glazing and firing which we do and this takes time. We only use top quality non-toxic glazes, so fired items are food safe. We fire our pottery in a top of the kiln.
Do I need to book?
No, if you are popping in to paint, you can usually just turn up, but if you are a larger family, you might want to call first to let us know you are coming, especially at busy times (e.g. school holidays, run up to Christmas). If you are a large group, then booking is required.
Do group bookings require a deposit?
Yes, group bookings require a deposit of £5 per person which is refundable in the event of cancellation provided this is done 48 hours before the date of the event.
How long do I have to wait for my piece to be ready to collect?
Usually about a week, during busy periods or for large groups it might be a little longer, so plan this into your schedule for group bookings.
What if it is a large piece and I don’t have time to finish it?
You can come back to finish larger pieces on another day at no extra cost, we will keep it safe for you.
Do you run activities during the school holidays?
Yes, keep an eye on our website and social media for promotions and on the Hoop app.
What if something happens to my piece in the kiln?
Kilns are temperamental and by the very nature of firing pottery, rarely a fault may occur. If this happens to your work of art, we will endeavour to rectify it and if we can’t then you can try again with a fresh piece of bisque.
