Pottery Workshops & Experiences

At Poppins Pottery we run a range of fun and creative pottery sessions from throwing on the potter's wheel to handbuilding with clay.  Suitable for people of all ages and abilities - so whether you've always fancied 'having a go' on the potters wheel, joining a structured hand building workshop or freestyling your own creation, there's sure to be a session that suits. 

Pottery Workshops

Experience the therapeutic benefits that working with clay can bring, relax and de-stress during our fun, friendly and creative Pottery Workshops.  All makes are left with us to dry before being kiln fired to bisque (blank pottery).   Decorate at home with your  own paints or book a session with us to return and glaze

    Pottery Experiences

    Short Taster Workshops enable you to sample the wonders of  clay, whether hand building or throwing on the potter's wheel. These experiences provide the perfect introduction  to Pottery  whilst focussing on the 'fun element' side of  things.

    Pottery Wheel  Experience

    Upon arrival we’ll run through the basics before demonstrating pottery throwing on the wheel to make a small Pot. You’ll then have time  on the wheel to make a small pot (or two) before moving on to embellish with clay shapes. Allow up to 1.5 hours in total for this experience. (Suitable for up to 4 people) a fun ‘taster’ pottery experience for those who have never tried a potters wheel and always fancied ‘having a go’.

    We’re on hand to offer as much or as little assistance required. Aprons are provided but we recommend wearing clothes you won’t mind getting a little messy. Leave your creation with us to kiln fire. Once ready we will post via courier, or you may collect if local

    Clay handbuilding  Experience

    This is a Handbuilding only experience (no Wheel work)

    Learn the basics of pinching, coiling and slab building with clay and make your own  clay art using the studio equipment and materials provided.  

    Creations are left with us to kiln fire.  Once ready we will then wrap and post within the UK for a small cost, or make available for collection.

    Allow up to 1.5 hrs for this experience - suitable for up to 6 people from the same group
