Beautiful, practical, affordable clayware items - from stir-fry bowls to jugs, dishes, plates, etc. - all made in the on-site pottery. (A few years ago he even made a set of encaustic tiles using patterns that would have been found in Merton Abbey, located about 100 metres away. It doesn't get any more local or knowledgeable than this!) The pottery also occupies an amazing historical building housing the last water wheel on the River Wandle (aka LB Merton's logo for many decades), and supports a mini-museum about it and the local area.
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
