Pottery on Wheels is temporarily closed until the new studio on Loch Ken has been created and the kilns installed.

We hope to be offering pottery experiences again in 2019, in and around Northern England and Southern Scotland. 

I will keep this website up to date with information but please get in touch if you have any questions. 

Pottery on Wheels (POW) is a mobile pottery studio.

The mobile studio is a converted Landrover Defender which is equipped with two portable pottery wheels, tables, wrap around awning and everything you need to be creative with clay.

POW does parties, markets, fairs, educational classes, team building, hen and stag experiences, private tuition, baby prints and much more.

If you are interest in being creative with clay POW will make you say ‘WOW did I make that!?’



Pottery on Wheels is a little bit quirky and a lot of fun!

It’s a pottery studio that is neatly transported around in a converted Landrover Defender. There are two portable pottery wheels, several tables and benches, a wrap around awning and everything else you need to be creative with clay.

Being mobile means the fun can travel to you. We can set up in most spaces whether it be your home, workplace, community centre, school, market or holiday cottage. Alternatively, set up can take place in and around the Landrover if you are camping, having a garden party, don’t have space inside or just enjoy being outdoors.

A POW experience is tailored to your interests and requirements with all equipment, materials and teaching provided. So if you are celebrating a birthday, doing something new as a family, team building with colleagues or developing your art portfolio, we can cater to your needs.

Your POW experience will be delivered by Sarah who is a qualified art teacher with 10 years of experience, 8 of which she was the Head of Art, a first class honours degree from Newcastle University and a masters degree from the Institute of Education, London.

Sarah is also a practising GCSE Art and Design moderator.

Most importantly she will ensure you have an enjoyable experience whilst you create your clay masterpieces!


I had a go on the pottery wheel and found it really easy with your guidance… The finished product is excellent and a beautiful memento of my first pottery experience

I can’t recommend Pottery On Wheels enough! I had a couple of personalised things made for my son, and Sarah went out of her way to ensure everything was to my liking. Not only are the products beautiful but Sarah was an absolute pleasure and went above and beyond the call of duty for me! Thank you


From me and on behalf of everyone else, we wanted to say thank you very much for a fab afternoon. We couldn’t believe the amount of items we made and how involved everyone got. Everyone really enjoyed themselves (and some more than they thought they would!) and can’t wait to see the end results.


It was such an amazing experience and all of us had such an amazing time! I can tell you that we will be returning.


Thanks so much. You certainly provide the gift that keeps giving. Not only a super party but something to show for it too.


What a lovely experience, among meeting new friends it was the highlight of our stay at Valley Fest


Thank you for Saturday! Hana (and everybody) loved it! She said it was the best party she ever had.


Sarah thank you so much for such a brilliant morning – lily was totally in her element and all the girls loved it. Lots of excited chatter at home time!


We had our 16 week old’s hand and footprint set in clay. Sarah made it so easy, was super flexible with appointment times (even more so as she offered to come to us if we needed her to) and created exactly what we had wanted. Very reasonable prices, quick and friendly service and beautiful finished project. The perfect keepsake of our baby boy! Thank you!


You’re an ace teacher with oodles of patience

– Cathy

Thank you so much, my little boy had a great time at arts in the park and made me a lovely gift!!!


I invited Pottery on Wheels along to my playgroup I run in little Stoke and she was nothing short of fantastic. Very professional service, she generated a lot of interest with the mums and is fantastic with the kids! Even the fussiest of ones like my 2! Fantastic quality work. Can’t wait to have you back over Christmas. Strong recommend


Really friendly and helpful. Helped my 4 year old make an amazing octopus that he is so proud of. Was taken away to be fired and the end product is gorgeous. Very pleased

-Laura Jane

…haven’t thrown a pot since school days, absolutely chuffed to make one again with your chilled guidance


Had a great time making Christmas decorations at Pottery on Wheels this afternoon. Can’t wait to see the finished results…

Has her pottery creations back and is so very pleased with the results. Thank you so much Sarah, looking forward to learning more pretty skills with you in the new year


Fantastic day had making my very own bowl


Amazing, really enjoyed making pottery with Sarah. So much fun!


At the Cafe Clifton Sarah showed me step by step how to throw a pot on the wheel and enabled me to do as much as I could on my own. Sarah glazed it beautifully and now it is a lovely mug to use. The mug brings back happy memories. Thank You.


Thank you so much for today Sarah you were fab… making things made me feel very happy…looking forward to seeing them all finished


Amazing, thank you so much for coming everyone loved your fab little business!!!



Series 2 of The Great British Pottery Throw Down is underway, at last!

Here are some videos of me doing the weekly Throw Down challenges:


The Great British Pottery Throw Down was a BBC2 television programme which was broadcast in November 2015. As a part of the series the contestants had to do a ‘throw down’ challenge each week.

Inspired by this POW took up the first two challenges:

This is a video showing how tea light lanterns are made from throwing to glaze firing. Some of you will have decorated your own tea light lanterns and may find this interesting. Enjoy!

This is a video showing how egg cups are made using the ‘throwing off the hump’ technique. These particular egg cups will be decorated by Easter workshop participants at Caffe Clifton, Bristol, on Good Friday 2016

Watch someone throwing a pot for the first time
