About the Course

Please visit our website for pottery days once travelling and gathering restrictions are lifted, but in the meantime...
A NOT FOR PROFIT “Get Creative” INITIATIVE to help people to start a learning experience with clay for low cost.
Distance learning potting kit includes just under a kilo of real potters clay, postage to most uk addresses and instructions on how to have a go at pit/barrel/ BBQ firing in your own garden (in a format of your choice.) Firing and glazing in my studio in Woodsetton near a Dudley, can be undertaken once travel restrictions have been lifted and you are able to return your pot charged of £2 per item. 8 pottery tools (shown in the photo) can be included in your kit for a further cost of £8, (plus an additional £2 postage because the tools takes the weight over 1kg)
Visit our website for full details and other offers in our clay and materials shop; full 10kg bags at £8.00 plus postage. Firing service offered from £2 per pot. All followed up with full instructions, ideas and technical support freely given on your platform of choice email/telephone/online.

This fun kit for any age and all the family consists of just under 1kg*clay. This is enough to make 5 pots of mug size for example. Full instructions and ideas by email/online link, plus comprehensive instructions on how to carry out Neolithic style pit firings. This is *real potters clay (rather than self hardening as you buy in the high street which can’t be permanent) that can be subsequently fired to high stoneware temperature in my studio if you wish, making it dishwasher/microwave/oven/garden proof forever.

£5 including delivery to most parts of the UK in the first instance. We are, at all times aware that we need to make things safe for us all, but whilst Amazon and other large companies are considered safe to be able to continue to deliver online orders, we will also. But we will make sure all contents and parcels are scrupulously clean and every item sprayed with disinfectant.
If at any point this government advice changes on delivery of goods we will update this page.
This service will be available as soon as is safe by free of charge collection or local delivery when travelling restrictions are lifted without meeting anyone.
Have your kit delivered and in due course for a very small extra fee return your pots for firing and glazing to my secure coded outdoor “potbank” when travel is less restricted. We have safe free off-road parking next to it. I will be available online to give you advice and guidance to start you off in your clay journey. Send photos as you work and I’ll suggest improvements for successful pots.

Look forward to meeting you in future - Lorraine Bates, potter and throwing teacher to the stars (of “Ghost The Musical”!) of 30 years, B.S. Hons P.G.C.E.M.A.
