Overview

We are just a short walk from the train Station, in the North Laine area of Brighton. We love to help individuals or groups spend an hour or two in our fun creative environment. You can choose from 100s of ceramic items to paint or try your hand at throwing a pot. Everyone, no matter their age or ability, enjoys their experience and has something handmade and unique to show for it. If you are not local then we can post your items or you can use acrylic paints for decorative pieces and take away the same day. We also hold exhibitions from local makers and artists. Booking advisable.

Our evening classes are proving to be very popular. Both Holly and Sydney enjoy their craft and get great pleasure out of sharing their skills with others. Very happy to hear you enjoyed the experience. We look forward to welcoming you back for another workshop.

Always have such a great time there. Really good selection of paints and stencils. Super helpful staff there to lend a hand and give advice. Great selection of things to paint and beverages too! Great for adult groups too! Really not just for kids.

Such a lovely environment to be in, I very much enjoyed the ‘breakfast set’ pottery workshop I recently joined. I highly recommend going along to either paint a piece or becoming a little more involved with having a go at throwing.

Thank you for your comments Lucy. We are always happy to hear how new potters enjoy the experience. When you get a chance please send a photo of your breakfast set in situ - they always look even better in their home environment!
