Pottery studio and classes in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK


Our Pottery is large and light which houses two studios, one for hand-building and the other for wheel throwing. Both are fully equipped with an extensive range of equipment to suit all needs. We have three house clays, an all purpose stoneware, red terracotta earthenware and a crank stoneware. We have three electric kilns offering the scope for large builds and small, plus a small gas kiln and offer smoke firings from time to time.

All of our classes are run in term time with closure in half terms, summer & winter breaks and bank holidays.

For beginners and intermediate learners we currently run a variety of classes listed below taught by our tutors. For experienced potters we have studio access hours where you can work on your self-directed projects by the hour on the days listed below.

For potters who would like more time in the studio we offer a supported and full Membership package, details are below.


Classes are £25.00 per 3 hour session and are paid termly, all makes that are fired have an additional fee of £8 per kilo which covers all materials and both firings.
