We hope that you have found some way to indulge your inner Potter during this Lock-Down phase. We have been planning the re-opening of the Oxfordshire Arts Studio here at Muster Point – with a difference! Social distancing guidelines and health and safety measures mean that the Studio will look very different. For a start we can only accommodate five students in the main room and each student will have their own workspace with screens for their protection. We have plans for two additional workspaces in two new “Pottery Pods” (think camping!). We are working hard to make all this happen, and hope to be able to hold our first, post Lock-Down, Pottery classes from the week beginning the 3rd of August 2020.
We will be in touch with all our potters by email or phone to give you exact dates for your diary, and to explain how we are reorganising the Studio to make your Pottery classes COVID-19 secure.
All pottery classes, courses and craft workshops are taught in our purpose built studio by skilled tutors. Discover full details including dates, times and costs of all our pottery classes, courses and workshops by clicking on their titles below:
