You'll be hosted by

Honeybourne Pottery

Honeybourne Pottery is a family business, run by potters Alan and Annabel Cusack. They live and work in the beautiful countryside bordering the North Cotswolds. Alan and Annabel create functional hand-crafted tableware. They specialise in wheel-thrown and slab-built pieces.

When they're not busy making their own designs, they teach classes for individuals, families and groups. This host welcomes people of all abilities - from complete beginners to those more experienced.

Settle into their tranquil studio and find a calm space away from the stresses of the outside world. This is a place where people can escape for a few mindful hours, learning about the beauty of clay. Workshops range from one-off potter’s wheel taster sessions to longer courses, spanning 10-week terms.

If you're interested in organising a private group class - for work or for fun - please get in touch. This host offers bespoke bookings for groups such as hens and stag parties, corporate team-building workshops, birthday parties, schools and social groups. They look forward to welcoming you to their studio!
