PoP-Up Pottery brings the studio to you!

An immersive clay workshop suitable for everyone, ideal for festivals and events, and can be tailored to suit specific locations and themes. The mobile studio includes our own gazebo and can set up as part of a craft area to provide a space where individual masterpieces can be created by many. These make & take workshops are run on a drop in basis and using air drying clay means participants get to take their handmade memento home with them. In addition to this hand building workshop we have portable pottery wheesl which can be supplied as part of the event.


We can facilitate collaborative sessions where we engage a community or group to work together and create large scale raw clay sculptures. You can find out more about those on the Community page.
