Potter's Wheel Experience

Are you up for a challenge and ready for a laugh?

Our potter will demonstrate how and show you how to throw your own bowl or mug on a potters wheel. Add decorative shapes or handles and paint it with coloured glazes too!

Bunting Workshop

Design your own pottery bunting, using shapes such as triangles, hearts, birds or cupcakes. We have a great selection of cutters, word stampers and stencils to use.  Have fun experimenting with textures, shells or vintage lace then glaze your bunting so it's ready for hanging after firing.

Clay Workshop

Discover the traditional technique of coiling and make swirly shapes to create a beautiful and personal handmade bowl. Or make mugs using coils wrapped round a flower pot.

After creating, paint using traditional or brightly coloured glazes. 

Who can Pull the Longest Handle?

For a bit of fun at a clay party, have a go at our 'Who Can Pull The Longest Handle?' game, using the traditional potters technique of handle pulling.    

Guaranteed to cause giggles, it's not one for the faint-hearted! Probably only suited to over 18's. 

Pottery Painting

Choose from a selection of mugs, bowls and plates and create your own hand-painted design using brightly coloured under-glazes. After painting, we dip-glaze and fire your pottery ready for posting or collection. Other items are available at various prices. 

What's included:

  • Party Host
  • Tuition, help and inspiration
  • Use of all materials and equipment
  • Loan of aprons
  • Glazing and firing of one project per person
  • Mug of tea of coffee
  • 'Who Can Pull The Longest Handle' game (with clay parties)

The Practical Stuff:

Wear casual clothing that you don't mind getting messy although aprons are provided. You're welcome to decorate the studio for the party and to bring drinks and nibbles. There is plenty of free parking too.

Allow up to two weeks for your pots to be dried, glazed and fired, ready for collection or posting (p&p charge applies).  Why not hand them out at the wedding?

We have loads of ideas and can create a pottery activity to compliment the theme of your wedding, please get in touch to discuss your ideas. 

We'd love to make your hen party special for you!
