COVID Policy for Workshops/Lessons :

Unfortunately, due to the rapid rise of the Third Wave of Covid, we are now having to restrict our lessons/workshops to adults only, and only those who have had a covid vaccination. 

In addition, we are not mixing people who are not normally in contact with one another.

In line with Welsh Government guidelines, these are the Covid safety rules we are applying here in the pottery during workshops/lessons.

In short social distancing will be maintained where reasonable and practical, face coverings will also be used. In line with Government guidance, for some activities that require physical work and the impracticality of face coverings, they can be temporarily removed, i.e., using the throwing wheel.

Hand building etc. when undertaken will normally be undertaken while wearing a face covering while close supervision is in progress, thereafter when individuals are left to work at appropriate distancing, face coverings may be removed. The pottery is kept well ventilated and this adds to the security of visitors.

Some of the advice given specifically for Gymnasiums is being applied as there are times in the pottery when physical exertion is part of the process.

Our pottery lessons and workshops are not ‘pottery party’ or ‘paint a pot’ days but are aimed at people who are looking for an opportunity to sample pottery in a more rewarding way. A single afternoon learning to slab build, press mold or throw a pot, can be a rewarding experience resulting in the making of a ceramic piece to value for many years. We have no absolute age limit, but we recommend children should be over the age of twelve. In any event an adult must accompany young people below the age of sixteen.

Three-hour afternoon sessions are held Monday to Friday. 2pm – 5pm

Three-hour Morning sessions are held on Saturday Mornings only. 10am – 1pm.

Saturday morning sessions are always oversubscribed so please book early if you wish to take advantage of this time. A deposit against a booking will be taken for a Saturday morning booking.

We normally cater for no more than four people at any one session in order to ensure full tuition is given throughout.

Days arranged according to availability
We are able to cater for absolute beginners and more advanced students alike. Our spacious and well-equipped studio ensures plenty of opportunity to try throwing, slab building, press molding or coiling. You will produce several pieces, the best of which you may wish to keep. 

Because the nature of pottery making to the finished piece requires more time than can be allotted to an occasional visit, you can choose which of your work you wish to keep and we will finish, fire and glaze it, after which you can collect your work or we will send it to you at home. The cost of this service will depend on what you have made and how much finishing is required and postage if needed. It will be a nominal amount just to cover our costs. Payment for this service will need to be made on the day.

For more advanced students or amateurs seeking professional guidance our sessions can be tailored to suit individual needs. Throwing, hand building, design, surface decoration, glazing, kiln packing and firing can all be covered. We aim to help you with all aspects of pottery making. If you are an experienced potter who would just like to have a professional input, we are happy leave you to work and only intervene when you wish to have further guidance or help. If you live locally you may wish to take your pots through all the stages to finish them by booking further sessions.

have been teaching and making pottery for over fifty years and all of this experience ensures that participants can be assured of the very best of in depth tuition and attention to detail. I have yet to have any students who failed while attending one of our pottery workshops, to make a worthwhile piece, and usually more than one.
