Pottery Classes

5-week introduction to Pottery with the Edinburgh Design School.

Imagine drinking your morning coffee from a cup you made yourself.


Started in January 2015, the Edinburgh Design School will offer 5-week introduction to pottery classes 7 – 9pm, in the Bridge Pottery Collective (Studio 2.32). You will learn a range of hand building techniques including pinch pots, coil pots and slab pots. You will learn about the properties of clay, safe pottery studio practice and the glazing and firing processes.

The classes focus on building technique and developing a creative practice with clay.

We have been running regular classes now for over a year and they have proved to be popular. All our teachers are art and teacher trained.


Classes are £140 for non-residents and discounted to £95 for Edinburgh Palette residents.

The Edinburgh Design School is a SQA approved centre.  If you really like the classes you can enrol for ten weeks and then onto our SQA pottery certificate programme. The certificate classes enable you to develop and refine your practice and build your qualifications.
