Menear Ceramics at the Pottery Barn, Amberley Museum is offering a number of short 2-5 hr courses as an introduction to a variety of ceramic techniques. The courses are suitable for beginners to intermediates and will take place as detailed in the course notes. The pottery is well equipped with electric pottery wheels and everything needed for hand-building.

The Pottery also has the advantage of being situated in a beautiful setting in the heart of the South Downs National Park.

Above all, the courses are designed for students to explore various aspects of clay making within a beautiful environment and to have fun!
