Themed Workshops The Pottery Cave

The Courtyard - Bishton Hall

Themed workshops offer you the chance to make a beautiful bespoke piece of pottery by following step by step instructions led by Caroline. They offer the unique opportunity to be able to sit in peace and tranquillity and hand-make an amazing creation that you will cherish.

The two and a half hour workshops are available throughout the year and are based on a themed workshop, themes offered from 2021 onwards will be:

The Highland Cow; The Wild Hare; Enchanted Lamp House; Nature Plaques; Pitcher Jugs; Summertime Lanterns; The Funky Pony; Fun Farm Animals; Dragons and Mermaids;  Halloween Fun; Christmas themes.

This 3D project will truly become your own, we all work at the same piece throughout the session but the imagination and unique spin you can put on your piece will be your very own signature piece.

If you love relaxing in beautiful surroundings of Bishton Hall, Staffordshire, then there’s no better way to relax for the afternoon so we look forward to meeting you at one of our workshops soon.

Once made, the pieces will be dried fired and finished before being ready for you to collect within about 2 weeks. It can be finished for you in an oxide stain or you can finish it yourself by coming along to a weekly class (by arrangement) to glaze the piece with professional glaze:
