So ...
The Great Pottery Throwdown has had six series now, and millions of viewers have been tuned in. You can download all, or some of, the previous episodes from All4. Series 7 is  now looking for new contestants and will be back on TV after filming. There will be 12 contestants in the studio battling it out to become Britain's best potter.


Highfield Ceramics covers all the techniques that are required by the participants, so you can learn everything you need and practice how to do it too. Lessons are given at our modern ceramics studio on the edge of Tiverton, Devon, by a fully qualified and professional ceramics teacher.


Adults and children (over the age of six) are taught by a fully qualified teacher, covering all aspects of clay work, including wheel work. Earthenware & stoneware, clay and glazes, are used and fired in an electric kiln. 


The studio is light and airy, with space to work outside as well, which enables students to do such things as smoke firings, if the weather allows it.


Classes are of mixed ability - from beginner to advanced.


Also we offer the opportunity for children who wish to do their Duke of Edinburgh award can do pottery for their skills section (see the Children page for details).


All clay, glazes, use of tools and firings are included in the cost of the lessons, which are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays divided by age. You only need to bring your own apron or an old shirt.


Highfield Ceramics regularly hold exhibitions of students' work, either at the studio, or at various venues in Tiverton.
