Sundragon Community Pottery

From our home at Birmingham’s Old Print Works in Balsall Heath, we offer pottery courses, workshops, and membership for all ages and abilities.

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 who wants to come and go as they please. This gives you access to the pottery, clay, tools, glazes, and equipment, and everyone is welcome. We often have some of our resident potters on hand to provide assistance and offer guidance to those who need it. Please click the button below to find out more about membership fees, how to pay, and when our potters are available.
