So ...
BBC 2's The Great Pottery Throwdown has had two series now, and over 2 million viewers have been tuned in. No doubt they will be looking for contestants for the next series and you might like to take part! Highfield Ceramics covers all the techniques that are required by the participants, so you can learn everything you need and practice how to do it too. Lessons are given at our modern ceramics studio on the edge of Tiverton, Devon, by a fully qualified and professional ceramics teacher.


Adults and children (over the age of six) are taught by a fully qualified teacher, covering all aspects of clay work, including wheel work. Earthenware & stoneware clay, and glazes, are used and fired in an electric kiln. 


The studio is light and airy, with space to work outside as well, which enables students to do such things as smoke firings, if the weather allows it.


Classes are of mixed ability - from beginner to advanced.


Also we offer the opportunity for children who wish to do their Duke of Edinburgh award can do pottery for their skills section (see the Children page for details).


All clay, glazes, use of tools and firings are included in the cost of the lessons, which are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays divided by age. You only need to bring your own apron or an old shirt.


Highfield Ceramics regularly hold exhibitions of students' work, either at the studio, or at various venues in Tiverton.


Studio space might also be available for rent to an experienced potter (or potters) when not being used for lessons. Details on request.
