1. Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 people in order to make sure that there is enough space for everyone; with this in mind, we must ask you to book your class in advance.

2. Classes are run on Tuesday mornings, then on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings,
afternoons and evenings, and Saturday mornings. 

‘Taster’ and Half-Day sessions are run on Tuesday and Saturday afternoons.

3. So that cleaning can take place after each session it will be necessary for all participants to start and finish promptly; the times for the various sessions are as follows:

Morning 10am – 12:00 noon

Afternoon 1:30pm – 3:30pm

Evening 7:00pm – 9:00pm

4. Please arrive on time, bringing your own apron and towel. If you'd like a tea or coffee while working, there are plenty of mugs (all made on site, naturally!), but do feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
There are washing facilities in the pottery – with hot running water.


From December 2023, the cost for a 10-week course is £210, payable in advance. Early booking is stongly advised – places tend to be taken very quickly, especially as numbers are restricted to 8 per session. With this in mind, all courses are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pottery Experiences 

If you want to try your hand at pottery, but you don't have time to commit to a series of lessons, why not arrange a Pottery Experience, during which you’ll cover many of the basics.

Prices for Pottery Experiences are as follows:

Taster session – £55

2 hours duration; pick up to three of your favourite items that you have made. These will be fired and a white glaze finish applied by Kate. If you wish to return to glaze your work, there will be an additional cost of £20.
We welcome children between the ages of 9 and 15 years who must be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult – who will participate and be charged – for the duration of the session. 

Half Day – £85

3 hours duration; pick up to five of your favourite items that you have made. These will then be fired and a choice of glazes will be applied by Kate, unless you wish to return to glaze your own pieces.

Please call Kate on 07944 655024 to book any of the above experiences.

Gift Vouchers

For that special person, a really unusual and thoughtful gift. Valid for 12 months from date of issue.

Please call Kate on 07944 655024 to purchase a gift voucher for any of the above experiences.

“Kate’s teaching style is fab – there’s no pressure,  just a solid, informed introduction to the basics of pottery, leading to more complex disciplines like
slab work, or throwing a pot on the wheel.

Best of all, there’s lots of laughs and great tea – sometimes even biscuits turn up!
