Pottery Courses

We run regular wheel throwing and hand building pottery courses at Pottery Gagliano. Throughout the year we will be offering our usual 9-week courses starting in January, April & September, as well as some shorter courses and workshops.

Once you have completed any of these courses, you will have learnt enough to attend our Open Studio to work independently to practise what you have learnt.

Short Courses

We will run a number of shorter 3-4 week courses throughout the year.

Some courses will have a theme or for people with experience looking to make something a little different.

 

A great, friendly place to learn a new skill and show a little (or a lot) of creativity

I feel lucky to have found a well equipped studio I can work in so close to where I live. Roberto is incredibly patient and helpful and provides a workspace for people of all ability levels. A lovely atmosphere.
