Pottery time aims to bring pottery to all.
New Forest Pottery Time is run by husband and wife team Eric and Val Freeman. We are both qualified teachers with over 50 years teaching experience in primary and secondary schools between us. After 10 years of running this successful business we have decided with mixed feelings to retire in the summer of 2019. We will continue our work with schools and our regular Tuesday and weekend courses in our home studio.

We encounter many people who tell us they always wanted to have a go on the potters wheel, we specialise in courses for beginners to have a one off opportunity or as a start of a new and exciting hobby.
We offer courses for individuals or small groups at our Hordle Studio. See the courses section for the latest courses.

We are no longer issuing vouchers but will obviously continue to offer the high standard of course to those who have already purchased them. We ask that you contact us to ensure that we can arrange your chosen date before the end of July 2019. Please see courses page for the dates for 2019 if there is not a date to suit you please contact us to try to arrange an alternative.
We pride ourselves on tailoring the experience to the needs of the customer.
