Potclays Events

Courses & Workshops

Potclays has hosted a comprehensive programme of courses & workshops covering many aspects of ceramics for over 35 years, attracting a wide audience ranging from the complete beginner to professional practitioners. Many of our courses are especially useful to teachers, tutors and technicians working in primary, secondary, further & higher education. We carefully select the most respected, knowledgeable and qualified hosts to present our courses and seminars. In 2016 Potclays was awarded the Platinum Certificate of Excellence for our programme of courses & workshops.

If you've been inspired by the new series of The Great Pottery Throw Down, why not give one of our workshops & courses a go?

Potclays attend numerous ceramics fairs and shows each year, selling goods to exhibitors and visitors at special show prices. Due to space limitations, we are only able to bring a selected range of goods from our vast portfolio for display at the show. We can however bring along orders on a transport free-of-charge basis (space allowing) as long as they are placed at least one week before the start of the show. In 2020, Potclays will be attending the following ceramics shows. Please note the last order deadlines for free delivery to the show:


We usually hold two showroom sale events each year - one in February and the other in late September/early October, to coincide with our Annual Open Day. Our Open Day is a unique opportunity to see our working factory and find out where your clay comes from. We also run exciting hands-on activities and mini-workshops. Sign up to our mailing list to stay informed.
