What's on 2017

Workshops, Masterclasses and Demonstrations and Pottery Showdown

The Made by Hand Pottery Showdown 

Our Pottery Throwdown was a huge hit last year and we are delighted to welcome back Potclays and the stars of the BBC 2 TV programme.  Meet Clover, Richard and more throughout the weekend, buy the ceramics they make and challenge them in our Made by Hand Throwdown. 

Billy Adams is guest judge and compere, which is presented in association with Potclays. During the Throwdown, daily challenges will be set to test visitors’ skills on the potters’ wheels, which have been generously supplied by Potclays from Stoke on Trent.

Full details will be posted soon.
