Pottery Classes in Dunoon, Scotland

Pottery Workshops

Regular pottery wheel classes and workshops run March - October so you too can get creative in clay.


Weekly classes are popular for locals to the Dunoon area and the one-off pottery wheel taster sessions are great for those wanting a day out, or for a small group celebration or families on holiday in the Cowal area. They are fun, messy and get your creativity flowing. 1-2-1 lessons are also available on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis for those who really want to develop their skills and understanding of throwing, glazing and firing at the studio. 

1-2-1 Wheel Tuition

If you are solely wanting to learn the skill of throwing a pot on the wheel then I recommend individual lessons where you will get plenty focussed help and guidance. It may take a 3-4 lessons until you feel ready to join the group class.  Lessons are available on Saturdays or Wednesdays between March-October.


£60 for an hour and half session

(with the option to add extra time at £15 per half hour block)
