Pottery courses

Our team of friendly and knowledgeable tutors (including Fiona Scanlan, Ian Gwynne, and John Chamberlain) run courses throughout the year covering all aspects of pottery. Whether you’re interested in wheelwork, you’d like to get into hand building, or you want to find out more about techniques like raku and glazing, we’re sure to have a course for you! We welcome all ages and experience levels, and also offer sessions for children and families.

Pottery membership

Sundragon Community Pottery also offers studio membership for anyone with basic knowledge of pottery to come and go as they please. This gives you access to the pottery, clay, tools, glazes, and equipment. We’d advise that you take one of our courses first, so you can understand how our studio operates. Members are often on hand to provide assistance and offer guidance to their fellow members. Please click the button below to find out more about membership fees and how to pay.
