Pottery Classes

For PRICES, DATES and DETAILS of our current programmes please click on either of the following links:  WEEKLY CLASSES and ONE DAY WEEKEND CLASSES.

We also provide tailor made group and individual art workshops for a wide variety of events and client groups.

Read on for more general information about our classes:

Fran Tristram offers regular weekly and tailor-made one-to-one or group pottery classes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in our own Seymour Road Studios set in our lovely garden in Lady Bay, West Bridgford, Nottingham.  Keep an eye out too for our occasional One Day Weekend Classes too!

Workshops are focused on building skills and confidence and are structured around the introductory and intermediate level.  Our small class sizes (max 8 per group) are ideal, allowing us to bring the personal touch so that we can support individual development to a more advanced level as participants progress and pursue their own ideas.

Please note that throwing on the wheel is not taught in our regular group classes.  Please book privately with Fran to arrange a tailor-made session if wheel throwing is your preferred technique.

COLLECTING YOUR POTS AFTER FIRING
Due to increased demand for privately arranged and one-off classes in addition to the regular classes, Fran can not take responsibility for contacting each individual when work is ready, so to avoid disappointment, please ensure that you get in touch promptly to keep track of your work.

  • Please ensure that you discuss a likely collection date with Fran during your making session and make a diary note to get in touch at the appropriate time.
  • Please always make sure that your work is easily identifiable by initialling and dating it clearly and photographing it – you will be surprised how many people don’t recognise their own pots!
  • Once pots are fired ready for collection they will be kept for up to 3 months in the pottery before they are discarded – we are a very small workshop and do not have room to store uncollected work indefinitely.
