Welcome to
The Pottery

Our term time pottery painting sessions are every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 10.00 - 17.00. We are open at other times for classes, events, and parties - find out more about these on our bookings page or on Facebook. Opening hours may vary during school holidays.

Our studio offers a full and exciting range of ceramic activities for all ages and levels in stunning surroundings. Learn throwing, hand building, and decorating in our six week blocks of classes or paint beautiful bisque with a range of glazes and techniques during our drop in pottery painting sessions. Both activities take place throughout the week and we also run a vast array of workshops throughout the year from willow weaving to plate making. Get stuck in with our Introduction to Ceramics classes, or try the ancient and fiery Raku process, in our monthly workshops. Relax with your friends at Prosecco & Paint evening sessions, or create gifts and memories to be cherished at our seasonal events. We host parties for adults and children, as well as corporate events and taster sessions. Creating Happy through clay and paint.


Pottery Painting

Painting is the ultimate in mindfulness, with freedom to be as creative as you wish, or simply to colour in using three dimensions. Our peaceful studio is the perfect spot to escape to, and suitable for all. Paint beautiful, functional pieces for your home, thoughtful gifts, or personalised trinkets. We run drop in pottery painting sessions several days a week and you can just turn up and paint - or book a table here. Alternatively, book onto a workshop for tuition in different glazing techniques, or meet up with friends at our relaxed Prosecco & Paint evenings on the first Friday of every month. Your masterpieces can be collected a week after your session!


Ceramics Classes

Joy Price-Gibbs, qualified and experienced ceramicist and teacher, makes working with clay accessible to all, providing a wealth of knowledge to help with creating your own artwork. Have or gift a uniquely memorable experience of the six-week course. Spend two hours in our studio every week learning at your own pace and exploring the areas that interest you the most. All students have the chance to learn hand building, glazing, coiling and experience throwing on the wheel. Many students choose to stay on for more courses and explore in greater depth the area they find an affinity with. Six week blocks run throughout the year on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday both day and evening. Contact us to book onto a course.
