We run nine pottery and two sculpture classes per week. Our experienced tutors provide tuition in a relaxed, supportive and welcoming environment, where fun and laughter often thrives!

The pottery classes last for three hours and the sculpture classes two and a half hours. Terms last for 12 weeks, three per year, coinciding with the academic calendar. For more details see the class schedule.

Classes are limited to a maximum of 14 people, all ages and abilities welcome.   There are large work tables, plenty of wheels and space to work comfortably.

Equipment

Electric and Leach kick wheels, facilities for hand-building, a wide range of glazes and a spray booth.  We have an electric kiln mainly used for biscuit firing plus occasional earthenware firings, and a gas kiln for firing reduced stoneware.  We also have raku kilns that are regularly used by members.

Both electric and gas kilns are fired regularly to ensure a continual circulation of member’s work. In good weather there are opportunities to do outdoor firings such as ‘Raku’.

Membership & Fees

For 2016/17, classes are £160 per 12-week term. Clay, glaze and firing are additional. Discounted clay can be purchased from your tutor at the pottery, currently £11 per 12.5kg bag for stoneware.  Firing is chargeable per kg.
