The Pottery Studio at Hoathly Hill has been operational since the end of 2004. Created by the efforts of the staff, students and friends, it is a light, airy, fully equipped space including a large electric kiln and wheel.
The pottery studio was run by Doug Moncrieff, who has now retried. From September 2015, Ingrid Vienings is offering pottery and sculpture classes for children.
Ceramics are my life’s passion. Clay is creative, meditative and therapeutic. The hidden gems in working with clay are understanding the limits and boundaries of the medium and yet with patience and persistence, clay can be pushed far beyond its limitations.
The adult and children’s classes are mixed abilities and teaching needs will
depend on the individual. Individual sessions can also be arranged. The cost
of the classes is £9-00/ hour and additional firing and glazing charges apply.
Additional time to the hour is possible at an extra charge of £3-50/half hour
