Honeybourne Pottery is an independent family business run by ceramic artists Alan & Annabel Cusack. Our friendly studio offers an exciting range of potter's wheel and clay modelling workshops for individuals, families and large groups. Everyone is welcome, from complete beginner to experienced potter. Children and adults of all ages can join in the fun and achieve amazing results!
Located on the edge of the North Cotswolds in the pretty village of Honeybourne, the studio and natural surroundings are ideal for inspiring creativity. As well as offering high quality pottery experiences, we also produce a collection of hand-crafted ceramics available to buy at the studio.
Please see the tab Pottery Workshops on the menu above for our range of potter's wheel classes. We also cater for large groups such as Hen Parties, Corporate Groups, Birthday Parties, Schools and Social Groups. To make an enquiry please click here or to book one of our workshops click here.
At Honeybourne Pottery we have an ongoing commitment to our surrounding environment, both in how we operate & the services we provide. We are always seeking new ways to minimise our environmental impact & to recycle or reuse our resources wherever possible.
Almost 100% of our scrap clay is recycled & reused. The plastic packaging from the clay is cleaned & recycled locally. To reduce paper waste our till receipts are electronic. We use predominantly paper bags for customer pot collections & where possible packaging for postage of goods is recyclable or made from re-usable materials. If we need to dispose of any fired ceramics, we do so locally at recycling centres rather than adding to landfill.
Please allow approx. 5-6 weeks for your pots to be dried, fired & glazed for collection. We will advise via email when your fabulous creations are ready! Storage space is limited so a speedy collection is appreciated. Unfortunately we are not able to hold on to uncollected pots beyond 3 months. Collection is preferable however if you do not live in the surrounding area, we can wrap and post your finished pots to your home address at additional cost. We regret that we cannot accept responsibility for any damages or undelivered items by Royal Mail.
Collection times are as follows: Saturday: 10.00am - 1pm & 2pm to 5pm
Tuesday: 6:30pm to 8:30pm (excluding 25th June and 2nd July)
Wednesday: 10:00am - 1pm and 2-4pm (excluding 19th June)
Thursday: 6:30pm to 8:30pm (excluding 27th June and 4th July)
"I'm not sure if there is anywhere else you can get such a unique and memorable experience that is so affordable. Only when you hop off the hamster wheel and onto the potter's wheel can you embrace the escapism and lose yourself as you peer into your own creation in the making; sometimes its beautiful-sometimes its a disaster but each time its a joy and the smile never fades throughout. There is something quite therapeutic working with the earthiness of clay at the same time as forgetting the world around you - thank you for a most wonderful experience- we will be back." Mark
"Found Honeybourne Pottery online as I was looking to treat the fiance to something that we had never tried together before. Turned out to be a really fantastic decision from the very off! Annabel & Alan made us feel very welcome and were great hosts in helping us with our pottery. We even decorated our favourite pieces before they were sent to the kiln and can't wait to see the finished products!" Manveer & Priya
