The Clay Room

The Clay Room UK opened its doors in March 2016 - and now in June 2017 it has expanded and moved into a bigger workshop. Teaching day classes, evening classes and weekend classes, there is a time to suit everyone.

Adult Education

Adult education is a great way to try something new. Sophie runs clay workshops, beginners and intermediates pottery lessons, and introductory workshops to mould-making and slip-casting. (classes are for over 16's)

Children and Teenagers

Children and teenagers under the age of 16 are very welcome on Clay Taster Workshops when accompanied by an adult. Teenagers over the age of 16 are welcome on all courses and workshops. 

Pottery lessons can be a great way to relax and many people find it therapeutic, by focusing on the here and now and calming busy minds. 


The Clay Room is now in a larger workshop, with three good wheels. The space comfortably seats up to ten people. Regular classes tend to be in small groups of around 5 people.
