About Hands On Pottery
Hands On Pottery is a small ceramics school based near the centre of Nottingham. The building is light and airy offering Wheelchair access to all three work studios.
We have been working with people since 1990 and we encourage everyone to reach their own individual aims and objectives. Confidence is enhanced by our high standards of teaching and working in a comfortable friendly environment. The pottery is all wheel chair friendly with adjustable tables and a loop fitted in the main workshop. As the pottery is all on the ground floor it is easily accessible for all.
When working at the pottery you will be encouraged to work individually, on your own chosen designs, which will be finished to a very high standard.
The teachers working at the pottery are proud of our reputation, as many students have discovered their creative ability with us through the art of clay.
Many students who have never worked with clay before have gained qualifications or found a new creative skill they enjoy.
We believe that clay is a wonderful medium to work with and that clay brings out the best in people. The most satisfactory way we can describe our findings is:
"It's not what people do to clay, it's what clay does to people"
Hands On Pottery offers classes to everybody.
We are prepared for you to come to us at the pottery, or for us to come to you in a place of your choice. You can also decide the length of time you would like the class to run for, how many people will be in the group and starting and finishing times.
Our workshops are equipped with specialist tools, equipment and materials. We also have a variety of different wheels for throwing, kilns, a choice of different clays and lots of glazes to choose from.
We fire our kilns to earthenware and stoneware temperatures, which is useful for both decorative and functional wares.
The teachers are all practising potters, ceramisists or artists who have professional teaching qualifications. We all offer one to one support to enable everyone to benefit as much as possible during the time you spend with us.
