Throw some shapes...

We have a range of lessons from one-on-one on the potters wheel to a combination of throwing and handbuilding lessons where you can bring along your partner, best bud or the kids. 

From 6 years and up, if you're up for the challenge, we can teach anyone who wants to let their creative side shine. No need to have had a go it before, we welcome complete beginners.

Once you have made your creations they will be fired in our kilns and ready for you to collect in a matter of weeks so you can display them pride of place!
