Due To the Escalating Covid-19 Situation Sadly the Studio has had to Temporarily Suspend Sessions and is currently closed.

We plan to be able to offer take home pottery painting and clay packs from April. Great for all the family, you can just buy bisque items to decorate with your own paints at home and varnish them. Or kits with underglazes will also be available, which will involve items returning to be fired and collected. We are in a rural location with a private carpark. More Details to follow shortly.

We also offer firing services for any items made or painted at home.

We look forward to welcoming you for a pot throwing or painting session at the Studio sometime in the future!

Until then I hope you and your family stay Well and Safe.
