Special events and classes
During the month we often have additional events on where you can come to learn new skills and have fun of course. These are a mix of Pottery painting classes with different painting techniques and Clay classes where you are working by hand with the clay using different hand-building techniques to make your creation.
These classes are guided sessions with Jane showing you step by step how to do the project, you still have flexibility if you wish to add your own twist to what you are doing.
There are a few popular sessions which we do and outside of set dates these can be booked so you can come and do them at an agreed date and time.

Rachel Byass, world renowned Potter and Ceramic artist who has taught me to paint and work with ceramics for the last 15 years is coming to my Studio for the day bringing a Potter’s wheel with her. How exciting is that? Rachel is a warm and friendly teacher with clay in her veins and a passion for it to match.
- You can book in to have a 30 minute 1 to 1 lesson on the potter’s wheel with her
- Throw a successful pot – often at a first session you will fail to create a pot as it is a difficult craft to do, however with Rachel by your side she will share her expertise and make sure you create a piece you are delighted with.
- Opt to paint it on the wheel with Rachel’s own amazing specially developed clay paints using her special painting technique
- Or leave it as it is without colour on the throwing day
- Your fabulous pot will be fired either way, glazed and fired if you paint it on the wheel on the day. Or fired and you return to paint it in 2 weeks and then leave it again to be glazed and fired 4 U!
