The idea for a community based pottery studio has come about though my passion for pottery and crafting, originating as a hobby but now evolving into a local business. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase Halliford Village Pottery, which was an established pottery and ceramics studio in Shepperton, although with limited sessions and customers. Since then we have invested in upgrading the facilities, services and opening times and I am very much enjoying meeting and working with the many new customers who are now visiting. The studio has a wonderful peaceful atmosphere and this creates a lovely environment for creativity and relaxation.
Please take a look at our Facebook page - The Village Pottery and Craft Centre (see link below) - for up to date news and a gallery of work completed by our customers.
I look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to our lovely pottery studio.
Welcome to our family run Pottery and Craft Centre. We have over 500 ceramic designs for you to choose from, including functional items for your home and personalised gifts for friends and family. You can decorate and glaze the ceramics yourself, during one of our regular classes, or you can ask us to produce the finished article for you. We also run wet clay pottery groups and classes where you can create your own items with hand building techniques or using one of our wheels. In addition we can provide private sessions for adult and/or children's parties, special events or just getting together as a group of friends. We cater for all ages and abilities, and you are very welcome to come along and give it a try.
The aim of the centre is to provide a creative, fun and relaxing space for our arts and crafts community, with on-hand advice, sharing of ideas, workshops and events. We are located at the beautiful Grange Farm estate in Shepperton, with stunning views and plenty of parking both at the farm and across the road at the parade of shops.
