A behind-the-scenes chance to see what happens on a day in the pottery studio. There isn’t a typical day although you’ll certainly have the opportunity to load a kiln, prepare clay for throwing and lots more.

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in a pottery studio after you’ve made your creation? This is a one-off experience to spend a day with Jax and the team helping with and participating in some of the essential tasks needed to keep the studio running.

Perfect for anyone interested in arts and crafts, thinking of a career in ceramics, setting up their own studio or just looking for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend the day in a pottery studio.

What’s included?

You’ll have to be prepared to get your hands dirty! No two days are the same, but weekly tasks include glazing pots, mixing glazes, loading/emptying kilns, packing pottery to post, making templates and messy jobs like recycling and pugging clay alongside washing equipment.

Tea and coffee included. Bring your own lunch or take a 5-minute drive to one of the cafes in Great Torrington or at RHS Rosemoor.

The experience is 5 hours and is suitable from age 14+.

For +£15, you can finish your day with an extra hour to throw a pot with tuition and glaze it yourself.

This experience is only available to book for one individual on any particular day.  Dates subject to availability within the busy studio routine.  

Our studio is located in beautiful North Devon with fabulous views and plenty of free parking.
