Potter in Residence Katharine (Katie) Gleeson offers one to one tuition in traditional techniques of throwing, hand building, decorating and glazing for all ages and abilities.

My small group classes are designed to ensure that students have the best possible experience at Katie's Pottery Studio. One to one tuition in traditional techniques of throwing on the wheel, hand building, decorating and glazing in a creative and fun environment are what students enjoy at Katie's Pottery Studio. Classes for children are held on most Saturday mornings and during school holidays and I also offer "Date Nights" for couples staring with a beverage and canapes , a session in the studio and dinner at a local restaurant if required. Very popular are my special celebrations, such as birthday or hen party celebrations. I am happy to tailor make a party to suit your requirements and budget.  Why not come and join us?
