Welcome to James Lemon's Workshops, an adorable and warm destination for pottery enthusiasts seeking an exceptional learning experience but also a great time. James has been taking workshops at his studio for the last 6 years and is excited to welcome people back to the space after some recent major projects.

Private workshops are designed to facilitate either a purely educational framework or if you're wanted to treat some friends or family a light and fun session of just getting a bit messy. Some light refreshments and snacks can be provided depending on your occasion. 

These workshops can be based on the wheel, or hand-building or a combination.

 For 2-4 people just add your group size to the cart. For anything larger, just get in touch with and we can discuss. We can easily accomodate larger groups but that just requires some extra details. 

The window for timing is flexible within October - December. Saturday evenings are preferable :). Once purchased we'll be in touch to discuss exact timing. The next available window for private workshops will be from October - December.

You can book into one of our engaging glaze classes to complete your masterpiece (highly recommended for a fun time!)if you like too :)
