Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the lockdowns and restrictions we have had to live through, there have been no “live” events held this year. We hope to be able to resume these in the summer of 2021, but until then – stay safe!

However, to keep us enthusiastic about clay and the prospect of a return to classes, there is The Great Pottery Throw Down series 2021 on Channel 4 to look forward to [Sunday January the 10th at 19:45]. Siobhán McSweeney hosts the battle of the clay, as twelve of Britain’s best home potters compete to become champion of the wheel. In Episode 1 – Cheese Set & Port Chalices – Judges Keith Brymer Jones and Rich Miller set the twelve new potters two challenges against the clock: to throw a cheese set and port chalices. Sounds challenging!
