together with others can be something that is fun to do. So
why not give your child or a friend a gift that will fire their
imagination. No need to worry about making a mess,
this is an opportunity for free
self-expression. A pottery party with
friends is a great opportunity for everybody to unleash creativity,
problem solve, improve hand to eye co-ordination and
boost self esteem. We
help you achieve a work of art and fire your
creations in our kiln. To ensure
everyone is assured of personal attention from an experienced teacher,
numbers are kept to a maximum of 14 children,
10 adults. After the creative session and
hand washing, party celebrations
with cake and refreshment can
begin in our open plan conservatory kitchen

a wonderful gift for someone.
Clay is a wonderful tactile medium that many people have never
experienced before. Its three dimensional nature forces you to think
about structure, shapes and form. Once you learn to express and execute
your personal visions in clay, you become empowered in ways that go far
beyond the walls of the ceramic studio. Longfield Studio
allows you to experiment with a variety of hand building and
throwing techniques while you find your potential. You
can book a one-to-one couple workshop or a parent and child session with an
experienced and trained ceramic teacher to learn a particular skill
or come in a family or company group for
a workshop tailored to your ideas. The studio also offers
facilities for potters wanting to find a peaceful place to work on a
long-term basis with use of kilns, clays, glazes and ceramic equipment.
Longfield Potters find our voucher scheme allows the flexibility to
come to the studio at their own convenience.
