There will also be demonstrations by local potters and students of Raku and pit firing of pots out of doors. The Woodsetton Pot Shop will be open and there will be basic pottery materials for sale. The pottery owner Lorraine, also keeps a notice board with details of pottery classes, pottery seminars and The Midlands Potters Association and the potters and students will be happy to answer any questions.

Although this is a primarily drop in day, there may be a queue to have a go on the potters wheels. So when you arrive take a number for each person wishing to have a go at throwing and feel free to have a look at the firings or shop area or have a cup of tea while you wait, and numbers will be called in order.
If you would like to book a ten minute slot ahead ring on 01902883429 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with an approximate time of arrival.
We will then give you a number and when you arrive you'll go to the front of the queue at the time allotted to you.
There is no charge at this stage; If you subsequently wish to have your piece fired you can pay £5 in the day.
