Based in Manchester, Seven Limes Pottery offers small and friendly classes. You can learn a wide range of kinds of pottery at your own pace, and create and be taught whatever you would like to make.
All the photography around the site is of our studio, and of the pottery made by people who have attended Seven Limes Pottery classes, who are mostly beginners!
