ADULT CLASSES

Weekly pottery classes for adults in North Devon.  Suitable for total beginners or those with some experience of clay.

For beginners or those who would like a refresher of techniques, we can demonstrate and teach you how to make pinch pots, coil, slab and tiles in addition to exploring texture and decorating techniques.  Find out about using coloured slips, glazes and oxides.

We can give instruction to get you started with or help to getting back to throwing on one of our seven potter's wheels.  

During the classes you can work on your own ideas or we can suggest projects, including seasonal ones, to give you creative inspiration throughout the year with lots of support and encouragement.  

Our classes are friendly and informal and numbers are limited.

Contact the studio to book onto the next available day or evening course.

If you're looking for a one off session, rather than a weekly class we can accommodate that too.

If you can't commit to the same day and time each week, ask about our Open Studio Membership.  Suitable for those with some experience with clay, you pay for a block of 20 hours in the studio to use as and when convenient to you. It works very well for those who like to take holidays in term time but don't want to miss out on their pottery classes.  For example you can come for a couple of days one week, have a couple of weeks off then choose mornings, afternoons or days that suit you for your next sessions in the studio.  

contact us to find out more.

   

People come to our classes from all over Mid, West and North Devon - including Braunton, South Molton, Holsworthy, Bude and beyond.  So whatever you fancy doing, we have the right class for you!

We regularly have space for a taster session, so if you are thinking about joining in and want to give it a try first, ask for availability.  Groups are welcome to come for a one-off workshop at other times and days too, depending on studio space.

All tuition and equipment is included.  There is a small charge towards the cost of materials and firing of your pottery.

To book please get in touch letting us know what day / session you would like to attend.
