Merton Abbey Mills is one of those tranquil locations that have no business being associated with the frenetic city they are technically part of. Occupying a former mill on the banks of the River Wandle (once a hub for the textiles industry), the Mills offer an enclave of shops with an obvious focus on arts and crafts together with services (such as a stellar yoga centre) independent cafes and cosy pubs. There's an alternative market every weekend featuring hand-made goodies, as well as a calendar of live music and family fun days. One of the biggest draws, however, is the Wheelhouse Pottery. Beginners and more confident students (age 6+) are welcomed and instructed by longtime potters, Claire Bradfield and Stephen Llewellyn. Workshops are open all weekend and by appointment during the week. Prices start at a reasonable £15.

Fantastic and small group lessons with the potters wheel powered by an ancient working waterwheel. A real step back in time in the historic setting of Abbey Mills, the old home of the Liberty fabric print works

Good little workshop with lots of history and very friendly staff. Great way to spend an afternoon learning and making your own pottery.


Wow best £15.00 I ever spent. It was a good way to spend the day that teaches you how to make a vase, mugs, pots or whatever it turns out to be!!! I learned a lot and made a wonderful vase which will be heated to set, glazed and painted within four weeks. I can't wait to go back and try again. you also get to take your work of art home yippie x
