Balnacra Arts & Pottery by Vicky Stonebridge

Pottery, Opening times, classes and costs.

The studio is Open on a flexible basis on some days, if making a special trip please contact to make sure that we are Open. I am not currently taking commissions, I will announce later on in the year when I have the capacity to take individual orders.

I am Open full time from Easter 2022 to December 2022.
Regular Pottery classes are held, contact me directly to find out if there are any available spaces. ( Currently Full ) 

For booking one off pottery sessions and groups;

I recommend booking ahead as demand can be high throughout the year, I also need to plan ahead for kiln firing schedules, assistants and to fit in making my own pottery.

I can take up to 6 people in one go, all ages & abilities, if you have any special needs or access issues please let me know and we’ll do everything we can to make sure everyone can get the most out of the session- dogs are welcome.

Most groups find an hour, or hour and a half is good for them, depending on the age range and attention spans. You get time to make things by hand and for everyone to have a go and produce something on the potters wheel in that time.

Costs are calculated as a combination of the time at the studio, and the number of items you make for keeping. The studio time costs £40 per hour ( this includes tuition, aprons, preparation and tidying up time )
The costs for each item you make that you want to have finished and fired to keep are £7 per item of around 300-400g clay ( less or more for larger and tiny pieces ) this includes finishing, drying, glazing, firing twice and packing.
The pottery takes around 3 weeks to complete, I can then post if on to you at £4 for UK postage ( per parcel under 2kilos ) .or you can collect it for free if you are in the area.

I provide aprons, but it still gets messy- the studio can be cold most of the year as well , so wear old warm clothes. trimming nails and tying long hair back is recommended. long thumbnails can make throwing pots on the wheel challenging.
