Take a Pottery Class!
We offer short ‘project based’ pottery classes for Adults and Children or why not try tuition tailored to your individual requirements?
The art of pottery is oftentimes described as therapeutic and relaxing. While working with clay, your mind and body are in natural synergy, wrapped around your creative ambitions and goals. This thoughtful, artistic activity can open up the mind and relieve you of outside worries.
