Weekly Pottery Classes
Throughout the year, Arthur runs pottery classes in 6 week blocks. Students are able to develop throwing skills on the potter's wheel and use hand-building techniques to produce their own pottery. Arthur demonstrates, guides and instructs, to provide all that is required for the student to progress, in an informal, stress-free atmosphere.
The two studio workshops provide generous throwing, hand-building, decorating and glazing facilities and all pottery is fired in a state-of-the-art kiln, situated in a separate room , also used for drying students' pots.
The cost of the classes is £15.00 per two hour session, and for the six week course, therefore, a £90.00 fee is payable in advance. Finished, fired pots are extra at 1 penny per 2 grams. Arranged absences can be credited and rolled over, if the student cannot attend on an occasion.

A Pottery Experience
Looking for an unusual gift, mark a special occasion or just want to try your hand at potting with no long term commitment? We are able to offer "one off" pottery experiences for couples or small groups of friends and, or relations. Over the period of two hours, participants will have the opportunity to throw on the potter's wheel and make a press-moulded dish. All of this will be under the guidance of experienced potter and qualified teacher, Arthur Watson. Three chosen pieces of pottery made at this session will be subsequently glazed and fired, and available for the participant to keep. The fee for this special experience is £50.00 per head, with a minimum of 2 participants and to include the cost of 3 finished pots. Tea or coffee will also be served. Examples of pots made by participants, at our experiences are displayed below.
