Pottery Classes in Leicester

The Clay Room runs a range of pottery classes from our studio at Makers' Yard in Leicester. People of all abilities are welcome to sign up for our classes. We cater for beginners and people with an understanding of clay and ceramics. Our classes are student-led. We encourage you to work on personal projects to develop your ceramics skills. You will learn a variety of techniques including handbuilding, throwing, decorating and glazing.

We have recently introduced Taster sessions. Here you will learn how to use clay, and create a pot using pinching, coiling or slabbing. The taster session is a good class for those of you who are not able to commit to longer or regular sessions. Our Clay Days run at weekends. These six hour sessions are suitable for beginners and more experienced potters. We also run Pottery Evening Classes in six week blocks. Again these are suitable for any level of ability.

….And both our clay days and evening classes can be used as an in-road course for beginners who are keen to become members. Come and build your skills and confidence and when you feel ready to go solo, sign up for our membership scheme.

Individual tuition, private bookings and gift certificates are also available. Please contact us for further information.
