7 Limes Pottery - Pottery Classes
Seven Limes Pottery is Manchester's first pottery teaching studio open to the general public, offering pottery classes and workshops in pottery wheel throwing, hand-building, glazing, slip painting and many other techniques.
Running for over 25 years, we are your trusted destination for pottery classes that cater to all skill levels, from enthusiastic beginners to aspiring professional potters. Conveniently located just a stone's throw from the city centre; on the border of Whalley Range, Moss-side and Hulme, and easily accessible from Chorlton, Didsbury and their surrounding areas; our small, fun, and friendly pottery classes offer a perfect blend of hands-on learning, craft, design and artistic exploration.
Experience the joy of crafting and designing your very own ceramic masterpieces under the guidance of our artistic instructors. Our artists have written taught pottery programs for schools and colleges, and our comprehensive learning program is suited for both casual and serious learners, that easily fits around any jobs. Our classes provide not only a supportive space for learning a new skill, but also a space that's easy to make new friends and become part of a friendly community, where you can relax and be yourself.
Forget pottery painting or paint-a-pot, you'll craft, design, sculpt and throw your own pottery tableware from scratch, turning messy mud into ceramic art objects of your own creation. Get your hands stuck in by spinning clay on a throwing wheel, constructing slabs together, create large jars, pinch sculptural art objects, paint your pots by applying slip or glaze, and draw designs by scratching with the sgraffito method, among many other creative and fun to learn techniques that this activity will teach you.
If you're not sure it's for you, try out our taster class, which also great to come on your own, as a group or for a couples date, and if you want to dive right in we offer 6 week beginners courses, and 2-day throwing workshops. You can book a class at https://7limes.co.uk/shop/courses
We also run private classes perfect for team building, but also great for a birthday or hen do activity. Get in touch with us to arrange a date: https://7limes.co.uk/contact
