Pottery is offered to any community groups who may like to do anything from one class to a series of classes. We also offer classes to schools and work with companies/organisations to provide Team Building and Awaydays. There is either pottery only or pottery and lunch available.

Schools/Sixth Forms/Young People

We offer classes to schools and have worked with Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form and Salford City Academy. Youth groups Fairbridge (Salford and Bury), Hideaway and M13 have also come to the studio.

Comments made about the classes by staff and a student from Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form:

“Students have gained in confidence. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and appreciate the time and effort given by all.” Angela Ellison

“Excellent opportunity for students/young people to learn new skills, which has improved their confidence. Excellent teaching and instruction the students gained massively and unmasked many hidden talents.” Anna Handford

“I enjoyed being able to work on my own and also as part of a team and gaining an experience that I will remember forever.” Student


We have also worked with Fairbridge, a national charity that aims to give young people from disadvantaged urban areas a fairer chance to succeed in life.

Comments from Fairbridge:

“The sessions that Wendy holds with Fairbridge are valuable and constructive for the young people. It develops their skills of communication, patience and the ability to focus for longer periods of time. I really see a difference in a young person’s behaviour whilst being on a session with Wendy, such as their ability to communicate their creativeness or the sheer enjoyment of doing something more calming and relaxing. Wendy’s approach to the young people is very personal, allowing them to think and create for themselves, giving appropriate guidance where necessary.” Christabel Law


Pottery is suitable for Awaydays and Teambuilding in the fully equipped studio. Several companies and organisations have attended.

“I think you could say it was a messy but fun afternoon. We surprised ourselves with our artistic abilities!!!” Plumlife

Members of staff from the University of Manchester School of Community Based Medicine also attended an Awayday.
