This Saturday 19th December is the last chance before Christmas to choose from a selection of fabulous hand-made work from the Wobage Gallery, from pots and kitchen-wood to baskets, jewellery and textiles. Returning from a break from pot-making, Petra has a fantastic selection of her slab-built domestic ware, fresh and hot from the wood-salt kiln. Snap ‘em up, they are going fast!

Open 10am – 5pm Wobage Makers Gallery, Upton Bishop, Ross-on-Wye. HR9 7QP. Tel. 01989 780495.

(The gallery is then closed in January and February, re-opening in March. During winter closure please ring for an appointment if you would like to look around the gallery.)

Wheel-throwing – Beginners/Intermediates 2016

Monday, December 14th, 2015


We are delighted to announce two short intensives for the new year, the first in February, the second in March. The first is ideal if you’ve never as much as touched clay before and wish to give wheel-throwing a go. Or perhaps you’ve dabbled in a previous life many years ago and you’re in need of a refresher.

The second 2-day workshop is designed more for those with some previous experience wishing to extend their skill base and ideas. You’ll find further details here: 2-day Beginners, 2-day Intermediates, where you’ll find links for availability and booking. We look forward to welcoming students old and new.
