Making a pot usually takes two visits to the pottery and a minimum of two weeks to complete. During the first visit you would make your clay model. Once this is finished it is dried and fired. During the second visit your fired clay model can be painted with glaze. The model will be fired again to complete the process.


Blue Elephant Pottery is a ceramics studio, a place to play with clay.

The facilities and materials available offer a broad scope for beginners and more experienced potters to explore handbuilding, sculpture and wheel throwing.

The classes are relaxed, friendly and non prescriptive. Beginners will be introduced to some basic techniques and will be encouraged and supported to follow their own creative ideas and projects. Help and guidance will be offered as and when needed.
