Fun, friendly and relaxed pottery sessions in my workshop for all ages. Great for families and groups.

A taster ‘Make a Mug’ session lasts approx. 2 hours. We will be using terracotta earthenware clay and I’ll do a quick demonstration of the techniques to hand build a mug. You will then make your own and personalise it - could be with a drawing of Godzilla, a heart, leaf impressions or just your name! After this comes the choosing of the glaze you’d like me to apply. Once the mug is dried, fired and glazed I’ll send it (or if you are local you can collect). Postage is about £2.50/mug. The session costs £35 per person.

For larger groups, up to 10 people, or special occasions such as birthdays and family get-togethers, contact me for more information. I’ve also had a few people book sessions to capture their babies/ young children’s foot/hand prints in clay.

Have you thought about making it a pottery holiday? We have a beautiful 4/5 person self-catering, dog friendly holiday cottage on site, set in the rolling Mid Wales hills. Why not treat yourself to a relaxing few days away in the countryside at Gribyn Cottage and be creative in the pottery!

Read this lovely review from a family who stayed in the cottage in April this year:

‘We absolutely loved our stay at Gribyn Cottage. It’s in an idyllic spot, with stunning views and the cottage is completely charming, with all the amenities you could want from a home from home. Tim and Vicky are relaxed and welcoming hosts; we loved the personal touch of their welcome message as we arrived and their gift of delicious homemade scones with damson jam. The pottery workshop was the highlight of our trip, it was such a great activity for the whole family to do together and we can’t wait to receive our mugs in the post once they’ve been fired and glazed. We’ve stayed in Wales on countless occasions, but the breathtaking scenery, welcoming hosts, cosy accommodation and fabulous pottery make Gribyn Cottage stand out as a truly memorable holiday. The children are already begging us to return! Don’t hesitate to book, we’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone. ‘
