Workshops at Goonzoyle Pottery

North Cliffs of Cornwall
Pottery classes at Goonzoyle are some of the smallest potter’s wheel and hand-building classes in Cornwall, with a maximum workshop size of 3 students. However larger groups can be accommodated for special functions. Students are taught individually, at their own speed, what they wish to learn.

No experience is necessary. The studio sessions can be used by more experienced students who may or may not have a studio of their own.

The workshop sessions are attended on a drop-in basis – organising workshops which work within your schedule; paying as you go.

Each workshop costs £25

To book your workshops please contact Mary at

"A friend recommended Mary to me about a year ago and I have been attending ever since. Her studio is a relaxed, welcoming place to pot and Mary is a knowledgeable, supportive teacher encouraging creativity. Sessions are flexible, which is rare to find, and I love my time there."

“I have been attending Mary’s studio for over a year now - my pottery sessions have been the highlight of my week since retirement. Mary is an active ceramicist as well as a very welcoming, supportive and knowledgeable tutor. The studio is spacious, beautifully situated and well equipped. The sessions comprise small groups which are friendly and inclusive with no crowding or competing for resources.”
