In-house Workshops
Handbuilding workshops are held monthly and are aimed at complete beginners.  Each month is a different project and participants will produce a finished piece, including colour, during a 3-hour workshop.

If you are a group of 4 you can book your own private workshop and choose what to make from available projects.

Individual tuition is available on the potters wheel, be it a one-off or regular sessions. The studio has two wheels so sessions can be done as a couple or with a friend.

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 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.
 
Currently workshops are limited to 4 people to allow for plenty of space but when restrictions lift, this will be increased to 6 people.



Face shields, clean aprons and hand sanitiser are provided.


I hold a current DBS certificate and Public Liability insurance.
