TARKA POTTERY North Devon's - an exciting and inspiring clay experience studio where there is always something creative happening. Located in beautiful countryside with stunning views, try a Potter's Wheel Experience, book a wheel throwing lesson, join a workshop or pottery class. You can also paint pottery, a relaxing activity at any time. Our approach is relaxed and informal, with an emphasis on having fun and being creative with clay in a friendly, enjoyable way. Fabulous for families and equally a great day out for individual, groups and couples. We're just a 5 minute drive from RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal in Great Torrington.
