Learn the Art of Pottery Making in Surrey

Bring home a memorable experience and discover pottery making at Curvy Pots Handmade studio.

Arguably, the best part about travelling is meeting new people and trying new things. And why not combine the two with a visit to Surrey’s Curvy Pots Handmade Studio for a lesson in pottery making!

Ivy at Curvy Pots Handmade opened up her Surrey-based home pottery studio for beginners and first-time students to try wheel-throwing in early 2020. The goal was to provide an opportunity for both visitors and locals to experience art and connect in a small group setting, in a safe way during the early days of the pandemic. Since then, the mindful craft of pottery has boomed worldwide, and Curvy Pots Handmade has since introduced a number of visitors, including blind dates and special occasion parties for anniversaries and birthdays, to the art of pottery making.

You don’t need previous experience to learn wheel-throwing

Many people are fearful of trying pottery because they think it requires previous experience and that is simply not true! The Curvy Pots Handmade studio provides all the tools, supplies, and materials required for you to learn to throw. Simple and hassle-free, participants sign up in advance online, then just show up ready to play with clay. Workshops are beginner-friendly, fun, and relaxing, and Ivy is always on-site to provide guidance so participants feel supported at all times.

Make a bowl or cup and ship it home

Once you’ve created your beautiful pottery art, you may not want to pack it around during your trip, which is completely understandable. Pottery making requires time and is a slow process. Curvy Pots Handmade Studio will help finish your project by trimming and glazing your items after your initial throwing workshop so you have time to experience the other activities and attractions around Surrey. Ivy can also help arrange to ship your pottery projects right to your doorstep (for an additional cost), and when you return home your one-of-a-kind souvenir will be waiting for you.
