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 Katie Hess, Ian Gwynne, Nessa Grimes, Kate Wade, Austin Gannon, John Chamberlain, and Clelia Cacciarelli, 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.


Makers Gallery

Sundragon Pottery in conjunction with CWCHA is proud to present… The Sundragon Clay Pack Project Virtual Exhibition.

Throughout the summer and early autumn of 2020 one hundred and twenty five people in Warwickshire had a great time creating with clay. This exhibition showcases all the things that they made. It all started in June when Sundragon Pottery gained funding from CWCHA to send out boxes of air drying clay, tools and a booklet of ideas and instructions.
