Lake District Pottery Courses

Gosforth Pottery runs Residential Pottery Courses for all ages and abilities. You'll learn to throw a pot on the potter’s wheel and discover handthrown pottery techniques to create your own pots or sculptures.

With a maximum of 6 participants and 2 of us teaching, we can cater for all abilities and give individual support. Our courses are a great way to develop your pottery skills or learn a new craft, and make new friends.

Lake District Pottery Courses are in the perfect location to inspire creativity in the beautiful, relaxing surrounds of the stunning Western Lakes - Wasdale, Eskdale and Ennerdale - and the sea is also only 3 miles away. In our pottery shop we have pots by different potters and different types of pottery such as Stoneware, Earthenware and Raku to help you have lots of pottery ideas.

What do our Pottery Courses offer you -

The week-long pottery course starts with a meal on Saturday evening at 7pm, where we get to know each other and introduce the course.

Then we have a daily programme with pottery tuition in the morning and an optional range of activities in the afternoon. For some, the afternoon is a time to continue their potting and the workshops are open from 9.30 a.m. to 10.30 p.m. ( non residential to 6.00pm ) Others prefer to have a holiday or to do some of the other activities the amazing Lake District can offer - especially walking in the hills or painting the beautiful local scenery.

The morning's tuition is divided into two parts by a coffee break. One half is throwing tuition and the other deals with handmade pots, decorative techniques and other aspects which the student may require.

The week's course will finish late on Friday evening with a Raku kiln so we usually start by making pots which will be fired in this way. For most students this is their opportunity to experiment with glazes and to see their pots being completed in the kiln. It's an exciting process which certainly gives original results.

Students stay on the Friday night and leave mid Saturday morning.


Accommodation is in our old Cumbrian farmhouse with large garden and all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are included in the course fee. Please contact us for non-residential fees.
