New Life Ceramics Courses


Classes are held on a pay as you go basis, session by session. Please see below for times and prices. This includes all clay or glaze used in the session and the appropriate firing.

We have 4 electric wheels, a small slab roller and two kilns so work gets through fairly quickly. Students are encouraged to do their own projects with tuition in handbuilding or throwing as required. The studio is the converted double garage of our home with wood burning stove, tea and coffee facilities, and toilet. Generally we start a morning session at 10am and an afternoon at 2pm. We also do evenings starting at either 6pm or 7pm.

Beginners and children are welcome, we have a maximum of 6 people per class which means individual attention. Children must be supervised by a responsible adult.

At the moment we are still wearing masks and asking students to bring their own aprons.

"Hi Arlene,
Just wanted to say what a great time I had last week. The girls booked a three hour class for my birthday. We all had such fun and I can't wait to see our finished products! I would love to book another day for my sister's birthday, just the two of us. Thankyoooooou soo much. Emma.x"

"Just wanted to say a big thank you to Arlene for the pottery workshop that I attended with three friends in January 2016. It was absolutely brilliant and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone thinking of giving it a go. Arlene makes you feel completely at ease and relaxed and with both hand building and pot throwing, she gave the perfect amount of help and instruction while still allowing you to explore your own ideas and get creative. Very therapeutic and relaxing and we all left with a real sense of wellbeing."

"Hi Arlene, thank you for a lovely day. I learnt more in a few hours than two terms of night school. Marion."
