Welcome to Richard Wilks Claycourses

We are pleased to announce that we are now open for bookings from July 4th onwards - for small groups, one to one throwing tuition, and regular classes will resume during the week.

Whilst we welcome the opportunity to begin running classes again, we do ask that when you attend you respect the following safety precautions, so that we may continue to run sessions whilst ensuring the least possible risk to participants.


  • We will ensure that the studio is well ventilated, and we will clean all surfaces with anti-viral spray between sessions, including door handles, sinks etc.

  • We will provide individual pots of tools where possible, and ask that you disinfect these after use. Disposable gloves are available if required.

  • Handwashing facilities with soap and hot water will be available, but we ask that you use the sink one person at a time and clean down afterwards. We will provide paper towels for drying, or you may bring your own towel if you wish.

  • We ask that you maintain the 2 metre distance from others (unless they are from the same household as you) at all times.

  • We ask that you bring your own mask and apron, and towel if preferred as above.  We would normally offer tea/coffee, but until further notice would ask that you bring your own refreshment if wished.

We look forward to seeing you all back again soon.
