Hosting the Westcountry Potters Association Social Firing Day (each August)


For beginners and students already with some experience, the first term starts with learning and refreshing technical skills with:

  • Thumb pots

  • Coiling

  • Slabs

  • Wheel work

  • Glazing

always using one's own ideas, or those chosen from a project sheet.


After which, all students follow their own programme, according to knowledge and ability, both technical and artistic, using own ideas and imagination. This can be gleaned in the studio (talking to others), seen elsewhere by observing nature, going to exhibitions, the media, machinery, buildings, sculptures ... and 101 other subjects/ideas. This may be a one-off project, or become a theme for a term, or even a year. No two people are likely to be doing the same thing.


2 hour lessons cost 25 each and include ALL of the following:

Professional Tuition by a fully qualified ceramics teacher

Clay (3 different types)

Coloured Slips & Oxides

Glazes (Earthenware & Stoneware)

Use of all Tools

Use of all the Wheels (2 Electric & 1 Kick Wheel)

Firings (normally 2 per pot in Electric Kiln or by Smoke Firing)

Cup of Coffee or Tea

Just bring yourself and an old shirt or apron.


A full term costs for adults is 250 (for a 10 lesson block)

Students (16+) in full-time education receive a 50 discount, i.e. 200 for a term



Following two full terms, at full price, a third consecutive term is half price :
 125 for adults   and  100 for students)
reducing the price over the full year (30 lessons)

to 20.83 per lesson  and  16.67 for students




A missed lesson can be made up at another time within the term  (only by prior arrangement).


For those who are new to pottery, the mere nature of clay work means that one can not take work home immediately. The object, once made, has to dry, be fired, glazed and fired again!
