Pottery & Art

Just behind the Manor House is our very own pottery and art studio. This makes it easily accessible from surrounding towns such as Tewkesbury.

The art workshops in Gloucestershire are part of Kite Studios, who also have a location in West London. The art classes for the Cheltenham and Worcestershire region are managed by Petra Grossova.

Our resident potter is Oliver Herford, who’s worked alongside Ray Finch, Rupert Spira and Mini Singh. Numerous examples of Oliver’s contemporary ceramics can be seen in Upper Court, our cottages and the village pub, the Crown at Kemerton.

Pottery Workshops

We cater for all levels, children to adults, from complete beginners to those with experience.

Workshops are £20 per person for 2 hours tuition (with a minimum of  4 people per session).

This fun and instructive session includes:

  • a bisque fired mug or plate to decorate with paints. This is glazed and fired for you by us and normally ready for you to collect the next day.
  • a large size bisque fired plate can be provided for special events such as hen parties, birthdays etc for all group members to decorate. Glazed and fired at an extra cost of £25 per plate.
  • half an hour tuition on the wheel – 3 attempts! These are practice pots, not fired, and you are welcome to take home your best effort.

One to one classes are also available for £50 per hour.

Clay can be a messy business so we suggest you bring an overall or old clothes to work in.

We’ve plenty of ideas to inspire you. And you’re welcome to bring your favourite music and any refreshments to help those creative juices run.

Call 01386 725384 or email petra@kitestudios.org if you’d like to book a lesson or ask any questions.
