Have a look at the calendar text here to see what's coming up.
While The Poly Pottery can’t open for our usual beginners, intermediate and advanced pottery workshops, we are still providing clay sales and kiln firings!
We're offering these in accordance with our Covid-19 safety procedures, with outside-only drop-off and collection at the pottery door, and payment by card. Make your work at home, then bring it to us for firing.
To book, just get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. From there you'll arrange with Karl, our head potter, a convenient time to book the services you require. Karl is always happy to provide guidance and advice, so if you’re unsure, just drop us a line!
Small kiln firing: £30
Medium kiln firing: £45
Directions to The Poly Pottery
The pottery is at the back of The Poly on New Street. Keeping The Poly building on your right, walk down the sloping path past the ‘stage door’ sign. The door to the pottery is the last door of the building on your right.
New to pottery but fancy having a go?
During the first lockdown, we created a Poly Pottery Box: pinch pots, which can be delivered to your home containing all the clay, tools and guidance you need to learn how to make a pinch pot - a fundamental and versatile pottery technique. From pinch pots you can make bowls, pots and planters - and by joining two bowls together in a double pinch pot sculpture, you can make a figure to enter in our Clay Kemeneth Exhibition later this year. (Details to follow when we are able to reschedule our programme - again!)
And for every box purchased, The Poly will add another box into our community pottery project. This has been running since last summer to provide, via our community partners, free boxes to those who might not otherwise be able to access the wellbeing benefits of hands-on creativity.
The box contains air-dry clay which will dry at home but can also be kiln fired, if you’d like to make your creation food safe or experiment with glazes. And if you get the bug, you can get more clay and firing services from The Poly Pottery!
