Were you inspired by ‘The Great Pottery Throwdown‘?

Ashbrook Ceramics in the west of Somerset, offers pottery tuition for adults. Come to us and you’ll go home with an understanding of clay, throwing or other forms of building with clay.

One-to-One — experience days
Our sessions are aimed at individuals or couples so that everyone gets lots of personal tuition. It’s all practical and we do not separate learning from doing. Our years of experience running a regular pottery group has enabled us to understand a beginners’ needs.

You will explore and learn about different types of clay and their properties, as well as types of decoration. You will be introduced to the most useful tools and their purpose as well as the process of firing.

We don’t aim to be trendy or fashionable but there is something to be said for the effects of working with clay and this is explored in various articles about pottery and mindfulness.

Come and spend a day with us. It could be the start of a lifelong hobby.
