Do you want to learn how to make ceramic bowls on a potter's wheel ?

Would you like extra tuition to help with other classes ?

Do you want to improve your technique ?

Or do you just want to have some fun and have a go ?

I am sorry, but I am overloaded right now.

I can not take in any new customers until further notice.

Thank you.


If so, I can help.

I run a small pottery studio equipped with two electric wheels, two kilns, a wide selection of glazes, and all the other equipment and materials necessary to make attractive stoneware pottery.

I can provide patient step-by-step tuition in the traditional skills and techniques required for making beautiful bowls.  Either for one or two students at a time. Available both daytime and evenings. The classes are suitable for beginners and intermediates.

I can also offer 'decorating only' sessions. For further details on what to expect, have a look at the 'Course Content' pages or read my pottery guide for beginners.

Suitable for absolute beginners. I like to make it fun, relaxed and friendly.

See the Gallery page for some examples of what you could make

My studio is based in Cromwell Road, North Central Bristol (BS6) close to the Arches, Montpelier Station, and the Gloucester Road.
