Why our pottery is the best!
The Pottery department is housed in a large, well lit, spacious, well equipped workshop. The trainees work alongside and receive training from, two experienced, full time potters and will experience most aspects of traditional production pottery with an emphasis on hand thrown domestic ware. The team produces a wide range of different work including durable stoneware domestic pots, cheerfully decorated earthenware for every day use and traditional terracotta garden pots. All work is designed in-house. The work is sold through our retail outlet, Camelia Botnar Garden Centre, as well as through several galleries around the UK. We also exhibit and sell at various events including “Arts in Clay” at Hatfield House. No formal qualifications or previous experience in this field are necessary. A place in the Pottery Department will appeal to those with an artistic and creative flair and the dedication, patience and interest required to learn this highly skilled craft.
