Our pottery lessons, making days 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 or throw, can be a rewarding experience resulting in the making of a ceramic piece to value for many years.
2 or 3 hours as required - Days arranged according to availability
Afternoon sessions of three or two hours each. We are able to cater for absolute beginners and more advanced students alike. Our spacious and well equipped studio ensures plenty of opportunity for one to one tuition. If you just want to try your hand at throwing, coiling, press moulding or slab building a pot. this is probably for you. This allows a enough time to produce several pieces, the best of which you may wish to keep. We will finish your pots for you after they have dried, we will glaze them and send them to you when ready.
Lampeter is a five minute drive from the workshop if you wish to go into town for lunch.
If you prefer, bring a packed lunch. Tea, coffee or soft drinks are provided free for lunch and throughout the day.

Our workshops are designed for a more intensive period of participation. They are organized as morning and afternoon sessions of three hours each. We cater for absolute beginners and more advanced students alike. The workshops are 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 workshop time we are happy leave you to work and only intervene when you wish to have further help. If you are local you may wish to take your pots through to firing. If not we will finish your pots for you, glaze them and send them to you when ready. The cost will depend on the work but will be nominal just intended to cover the cost of finishing.
