What's on 2016

Workshops, Masterclasses and Demonstrations and Pottery Showdown

The Made by Hand Pottery Showdown 

Having been gripped with Throwdown fever, Made by Hand will be launching their very own version, ‘Made by Hand Pottery Showdown’. The winner of the hit BBC TV programme, Matthew Wilcock and finalists Jim, Tom & Sally-Jo will be special guests at Made by Hand in October. You can meet Matt, Sally-Jo, Tom & Jim throughout the weekend, buy the ceramics they make and challenge them in our Made by Hand Showdown. 

Internationally respected potter Kevin Millward is guest judge and challenge setter for the Showdown, which is presented in association with Potclays. During the Showdown, daily challenges will be set to test visitors’ skills on the potters’ wheels, which have been generously supplied by Potclays from Stoke on Trent.

See below and book your FREE place.
