What should I wear?

We recommend that you wear anything that is comfortable. We provide you with an apron, but it is best not to wear long sleeves, unless you can roll these up. Closed toe shoes are a must, no flip flops or opened-toed sandals. If you have long hair we recommend bringing something to tie it back.  It is preferable to clip your nails short for the wheel as when you lift the walls of your pot the nails will cut into it.  It is quite difficult to throw on the wheel with long nails.

Can I eat there?

We’re sorry, but for health and safety reasons food is prohibited in the clay room.  You can bring a drink with a top, or pop out of the room for a cup of tea.

Do I have to be awesome? You are awesome!  Working with clay is therapeutic and fun.  It leaves you with a sense of achievement, and it is very relaxing.  Please do not worry as someone is there to help you at all times and as the course progresses, you will be amazed at what you can create and achieve. Clay is for EVERYONE!

Can I bring someone with me?

Children may bring their parents with them.  However, for the adult courses, we ask that only the person booked should attend, unless you need someone there for medical reasons.

Terms & Conditions

All courses must be paid for in full when booked.

If you cancel the course, you may not receive a refund unless that space is filled. You can always sell or gift your course to someone, if you’re not able to attend or we can’t find anyone to fill your space.

If you miss a class, you can attend ‘unsupervised studio time’ and we can help with some tuition if we can. Do not worry if you miss one class, as you can make up for it at a later date.

Everyone (and I do mean everyone!) MUST clean their station and the pottery wheel after use.  It’s part of being a potter! :)  We will show you how to do this at the end of the first day.
