The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

The Art House pottery tutorials

The Art House is a creative hub based in Sheffield city centre, home to a cafe, studios, galleries and workshop rooms. Its emphasis is on providing a safe and inclusive space for "people who are normally excluded and marginalised and most unable to discover their creativity" – helping people to improve their wellbeing through creative arts.

As a charity, the Art House usually funds its work with vulnerable people through public art classes. To make up for its lack of income during lockdown, the venue is currently running a fundraising campaign – donate online. Donate a minimum of £10 and you'll get a unique pot made in the Art House pottery workshop and kiln!

See their series of pottery tutorials below to learn how to knead and prepare clay, how to centre clay on a pottery wheel, and the basic stages of throwing a straight-sided cylindrical form on the wheel.
