Once you have bought your Pottery Wheel Experience voucher below, the E-commerce shop sends you a automatically generated voucher by return email, if you pay by card or pay pal. If you pay by bank transfer the voucher wont come until it is seen in an account and then manually we have to complete your sale on line so this can take a few days.

Suitable for Adults and children from 8 years and above

We will have from 1 to 5 guests on the wheels , booking daily  between 10 am and 5 pm ( so you can book alone or with friends but there will be up to 5 on the wheels)

TO BOOK

Simply give Rachel a call on 07970793727 to buy a experience or alternatively buy one line.

Once your guest receives your voucher which is generated by return email on our eCommerce shop, (it takes longer if you pay by bank transfer to get a voucher as it has to be cleared with admin) They just need to call to arrange a date to suit them.

Vouchers do not expire at this time.

The well-equipped studio has 5 static wheels. The smaller portable shimpo wheel  we use to go mobile  within a 60 mile radius of Pontefract, or you can hire the portable wheel for £100 for a week with a bag of clay and tools with colour if you have some wheel experience. We then charge per pot for firing and glazing.

Our most senior potter was 95 years old and it had been on her bucket list for 50 years Rachel grandson throws at the age of 4

So if it is on your bucket list of experiences to have a go or if you just want a really different experience then call Rachel today and have your own Great pottery throw down.

PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST CALL OR TEXT THE DAY BEFORE TO CONFERM YOU ARE WELL AND COMMING TO YOUR EXPERIENCE DUE TO OUR COVID SAFTY CHECK’S THANK YOU

RACHEL HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED SINCE 1986 AND LIZ HAS BEEN WITH US FOR 24 YEARS SO WE HAVE OODLES OF EXPERIENCE

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Rachel has been teaching the wheel for over 25 years. Rachel also makes,  teaching pottery, ceramics and decorative art for 35 years.

Rachel  has a real passion for it no matter how young or old you are. Nothing is too much trouble for her.

On all the below experiences you make 1 to 5 pots depending on which one you book and in all cases you can paint your pot the same day. alternatively you can have them dipped in a pretty stoneware glaze or book a painting session at a later date at £10 for 2 hours should you rather just make pots on the day.

  The pot/pots will then be fired to bisque temperatures making them food safe and functional. They are then glazed  and will be ready for you to pick up within approximately 8 days. Alternatively, you can have them posted out to you for an additional cost of £10 which you pay in cash on the day if you wish for shipping
