Welcome to The Clay Studio

The Clay Studio provides a wide range of ceramics classes, courses, workshops and events:

Weekly Classes typically follow school term dates with a commitment period of 12-14 weeks. They are open to both complete beginners and experienced students alike. See WEEKLY CLASSES in the above menu.

Courses are shorter, typically for 5 weeks, and cover a specialised pottery topic. See COURSES in the above menu.

Workshops run for half-days or days, often on a Saturday, providing both taster experiences and also catering for more advanced students. See WORKSHOPS in the above menu.

Events can range between customised team-building days, birthdays, hen/stag parties, pop-ups and one-to-one private tuition. See INFORMATION in the above menu.

Based at Barnsgate Manor Vineyard, on the A26 between Uckfield and Crowborough, The Clay Studio has far-reaching views towards the South Downs. Surrounded by beautiful fields and wild meadows, it is the perfect place to step away from the busy world and to immerse yourself in our creative classes.

We warmly welcome everyone, from beginners to experts. We always have two experienced teachers per weekly class to ensure every student receives plenty of individual attention. Students not only progress their pottery skills, but have lots of fun in our social, creative space.
