Welcome to Valley View HQ

Calling All Local Potters

Would anyone be interested in renting a pottery workshop (The Pot Place) in Uplyme? 

It has a kiln, sink, plenty of shelving and workspace, and room for courses/sessions for 6-8 people. 

I am looking for a potter who would want to use the workshop independently and also be available to offer sessions for guests staying in the holiday let. 

With the spring/summer season coming up, I am looking for someone to start as soon as possible.  Please contact Jill on 07802 539752 or send an email for further details.
