Wild Pottery

On Wild Pottery you’ll dig your own clay from the woods and fire your pots in an open fire (or clamp kiln). It’s an exciting, elemental and alchemical process: earth, water, wood, fire- it’s all in there.

Courses take place in a beautiful 70 acre private woodland near Lewes in East Sussex, UK.

Wild Pottery courses

I currently offer 3 types of Wild Pottery:
Level 1 Wild Pottery: the highly popular, original Wild Pottery course
Level 2 Wild Pottery: expand your experience of Level 1 & learn a more advanced firing technique (clamp kiln)
Family Wild Pottery: a bite-sized version for children/young people aged 7-17

Courses are designed for adults (except for Family Wild Pottery, see above), although 16-18 year olds are very welcome if accompanied by a participating, responsible adult.

Really, really enjoyed those two days – we all felt very refreshed and inspired. I have my little pot on my desk to remind me of the wonderful experience. Simon M, Brighton.
