We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded with the Craft Courses Platinum Badge for gaining 50 or more 5* reviews for our courses & workshops! Thank you so much to all of our students past and present for your glowing feedback and continued support.

Potclays has hosted courses at our premises in Stoke for over 35 years and our courses and workshops are hosted by well-known and respected names. Whether your interest lies in studio ceramics or “Paint Your Own Pottery” (PYOP) which has recently exploded in popularity, Potclays offers a comprehensive programme of one or two-day courses and workshops to suit everyone. You may be starting from scratch or are more experienced and looking to broaden your knowledge, but in either case you need look no further.

Basic Throwing with Kevin Millward has seen unprecedented popularity in 2016...we think that Kevin's role as off-screen technical advisor for the Great Pottery Throw Down might have something to do with it!
