What date would you like to book for? You can give a few options if you're flexible.
Please choose a time slot below, we'll be in touch to confirm your exact arrival time.
This can be a rough number, we'll ask you to confirm closer to the time.
If yes, please list how many, and consider when planning your visit, that although our shop is on street level as is the bathroom, the bathroom is rather small and not wheelchair accessible.
Will you require the pottery to be posted to you?
It takes us 3-7 days to glaze and fire your pieces so postage is often the best option for visiting groups. It is priced at £2.50-3pp if posted to one address. If local you have 1 month to collect.
If you're celebrating a special occasional, would like to arrive at a specific time or have any questions, pop the details below. Parties are generally held in our downstairs area, so please let us know if anyone struggles with stairs.
Please check the box below, to indicate you will ensure your guests will arrive and leave on time, and that you have read the notes below on glazing and firing your pottery. *

Glazing and firing your painted pottery.

We try our best to ensure that the creative journey you take with us is fun and enjoyable. The final part of the journey involves the glazing and firing of your pottery. Sadly this is not an exact science and the kiln is sometimes unpredictable. While we strive for perfection it doesn’t happen all the time, particularly as these are hand produced crafts. 
Glaze spotting can occur as well as things like brick dust on the items. Please be aware that although we try to control for these events it is not always possible. It can be the charm but also the frustration of working with ceramics. 
Sometimes, if we feel it is safe to do so, we will re-fire the pottery to try to fix glazing issues. 
In the exceptional event of your pottery breaking or cracking in the kiln we will offer compensation by way of a replacement voucher.

Glazing and firing your thrown pots.

Please be aware that sometimes clay fired items can break or at worse explode in the kiln. We try to control for these events but it is not always possible. It is the charm but also the frustration of working with ceramics.
