Hello, I'm Sharon an experienced Clay artist & sculptor, I host regular individual Pottery classes from my pottery studio in the beautiful village of Heskin, Lancashire.
Come and join me for some friendly, informal fun whilst you make a cereal bowl, toast plate & either a mug or juice tumbler in this fabulous step by step Breakfast Set class.
The classes are small with 1-4 persons unless you are part of a larger group & run everyday except Mondays.
During the class you will learn the principles behind various pottery methods.
We start on the potters wheel to make the cereal bowl, before moving on to explore slab work & GR pottery forms to make your plate. We finally then hand build your cup or tumbler.
Full tuition is given so it is suitable for beginners.
The Crafty Potter studio is based within Heskin shopping Village, a unique retail and leisure destination featuring over 40 unique shops and businesses, With free parking we’re a perfect destination for you to make a great fun day out.

Last week I did the breakfast set course. Fab day. Sharon is so helpful, guides you through every step with great patience. Can’t wait to go back to paint and glaze it. Totally hooked. Great value for money.
