Can Bramley Pottery fire and glaze my pottery pieces?

Yes, at an additional charge of £5 per item. 

Pottery pieces will be checked prior to firing to ensure thickness of walls/bases (can cause piece to explode in the kiln if too thick)

A range of single glaze colours will be offered for the pottery pieces.

Do you offer one-to-one tuition?

YES! Head over to my workshops page and see

the options available for private tuition. 

Discounts available on wheel hire if private tuition is booked.

Note: Although your pieces will be handled with the upmost care during the firing stage, the very

nature of the pottery process means that Bramley Pottery cannot be held responsible if any

made item cracks/explodes during the firing phase.  This is a risk with all pottery making.
