N.B - Returning students, please note that once you have studied up to the improvers and advanced levels and you have reached a level with your pottery where you are quite independent and develop your own style, please think about making the space available for new students to learn. The Folk House wants to offer the chance to as many people as would like to come and have a go and learn new things. So we hope returning students will spread their wings and in your own studios elsewhere if they have developed beyond the teaching offered at the Folk House. Thank you.
All our courses run for either 6 or 12 weeks in the Autumn term, and 5 or 10 weeks in Spring and Summer. We also run Saturday workshops throughout the year and summer school one day workshops. If you cannot find what you are looking for please give us a call.
