Pottery Studios

Pottery Classes or Paint a Pot

The Pottery Cave Ceramic Studios – Pottery Classes & Paint a Pot

We offer a range of classes & workshops for people of all skill levels, so regardless of your experience, you will find a session that is right for you.

Our staff are friendly & knowledgeable, & always willing to help & offer guidance to create your masterpiece. Gift Vouchers are available across both studios

Each studio offers a slightly different focus: If pottery wheel throwing & clay workshops are for you then Bishton has the best offering; 

Curborough offers paint a pot but we have a fantastic large party room space on our 

Mezzanine floor to suit bigger groups.

Handmade Pottery at Bishton Hall – Pottery Classes

Our weekly open studio sessions operate Thursday daytime, Thursday evenings & Friday daytime.  These are student led and need to be pre-booked.

On Saturdays we operate drop in sessions for the studio.  It does become quite busy so pre-booking is possible if you want to guarantee your space.

We also have a pottery wheel which can be booked during studio sessions.

Paint a Pot at Curborough – Pottery Studio

We have a fantastic range of ready made paint your own pot pieces.  Prices vary based on the piece.  We operate 2 hour slots at 10am, 12pm & 2pm daily between Tuesday and Sunday.  Bookings are available via this link:

Parties and group bookings

Whether it’s a corporate break out team building session, a birthday, hen/stag, kids party or just an excuse to get together and have a celebration, we can make sure that you have a lot of fun relaxing with clay.

These sessions are a great fun way to spend quality time with a group of friends/family/colleagues.

We will tailor your session just for you. We can arrange a led session where everyone creates similar objects or we can run the session where everyone makes something different.

The most important thing is that you will have fun and create something ceramic you are truly proud of. All of your work will be fired and glazed. We can also offer a small buffet at an additional charge (minimum of 6 people).
