Pottery Classes

Get Creative – Below you can find a Pottery Teaching Studios near you. The list is always growing so please contact us if you know of a studio which we should add.

Pottery is an ancient art form which has recently been enjoying a surge in popularity. Whether it’s throwing pots on a wheel or using traditional Japanese glazing and firing techniques, working with clay offers a wealth of different processes that give you the opportunity to create unique, tangible and functional artworks to take home.

There are many ceramics studios throughout the UK, and we’ve compiled a list of places where you can get hands-on and have a go, from drop-in ceramics painting workshops to full-on academic pottery courses.
