pottery studio memberships
For the more confident potters, in the coming months, our Marlow store will be offering memberships for amateurs and professionals who want to come at their leisure and use the pottery facilities and equipment. This will include use of studio glazes and tools, and firings in our kilns.
The best bit about being a member is that you will become part of a local community of pottery-loving people who want to share ideas and knowledge with others.
Home pottery kit
Nervous about trying a class? Then why not try and play with some clay at home first to test the waters?
We have teamed up with the Common Ground Collective charity to bring you a fantastic clay kit with air dried clay and tools. It contains everything you need for a fun-filled hand-building clay session at home. Suitable for any age and any ability, each kit sale helps fund therapeutic art workshops for children with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues.
It really is surprising how much fun you can have with these. One kit contains enough clay for 2 adults or 3 small children. You'll be amazed how quickly they become immersed in it!
