Wednesday afternoon adult pottery class. Sign up for two to ten weeks on our weekly course.

Dates: from 22 September – 1 December (Half term: 27 October)
Times: 1pm- 4pm

Tutor: Bridget Timoney


These regular sessions are the ideal opportunity for ceramics and pottery beginners and intermediate students wanting to become familiar with or improve their clay making skills. We believe that the relaxed, friendly, and peaceful atmosphere is an ideal environment for creative learning. This weekly class led by an experienced ceramics practitioner is designed to nurture everyone’s individual creativity and further each person’s skills at their own pace. You will be able to cover hand building techniques such as pinch-pot making, coiling, slab building as well as work on the potters wheel.

Wednesday classes are led by Messums Creative ceramics studio ranger/demonstrator Bridget Timoney. Bridget has been a practicing potter for ten years. She studied ceramics at Limerick School of Art and Design. She trained under Gus Mableson at the prestigious Thomastown Skills Course and completed an Adopt a Potter apprenticeship with Julie Ayton. Recently Bridget completed her traineeship as Mirka Golden-Hann’s Visual Arts and Pottery Assistant at Salisbury Arts Centre where she gained an in-depth insight into teaching pottery classes to all ages as well as running a community pottery.
