Private workshops
Private workshops can be booked and tailored for complete beginners.  Each session can be individually designed to meet your requirements and can include a mixture of handbuilding and potters wheel experience.  The studio can fit up to 7 people.  Sessions can be from 1-3 hours long.
Please contact the studio to discuss your requirements.

During school holidays there are clay workshops for kids.  These are the ClayPlay workshops and range from 'paint-a-pot' to creating individual works of art. 

All workshops are held upstairs in The Loft Clay Studio. Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access. Arrangements can be made to run handbuilding workshops in the ground floor level of The Little Workshop if necessary. There are 14 stairs with a handrail up to the studio.  Toilet and kitchen facilities are available upstairs.

Aprons and hand sanitiser are provided.

I hold a current DBS certificate and Public Liability insurance.


Potters wheel tuition
1-1 or 1-2 lessons are available as we have two potters wheels. Sessions are 1 or 2 hours long. Participants will have hands-on experience of basic throwing techniques and produce at least one piece of work that will be glazed and fired and collected at a later date.

Prices are:
1 person for 1 hour    - £30
1 person for 2 hours  - £50
2 people for 1 hour   - £50
2 people for 2 hours - £90

Gift vouchers are available.

Sessions are available on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am until 8pm. These can be purchased online
here. Sessions are also available on the last Saturday of each month from 10am - 3pm. Once purchased please contact the studio directly to arrange sessions.
