We have a number of talented teachers and pottery classes are run for all skill levels ranging from complete beginners to those who just want to practise their skills.
We use stoneware clay and there are facilities for both throwing and hand building.
There are five wheels for those wanting to have a go at throwing.

Ben mixes his own glazes and is always experimenting with different combinations.

We also have plenty of tools for hand building including numerous moulds, an extruder and a slab roller.

The greenware bowl was painted with a coloured slip before using coloured clay to make the raindrops. It was then bisque fired.
A clear glaze and glass shards were added before the final firing to achieve this beautiful finish.
