Freya's Clay Club

Freya's Clay Club is a friendly family run studio that offers pottery classes for masters and beginners to the craft! Master potter Chris Bramble runs the daytime sessions and daughter Freya runs the evening and weekend classes.

Pottery is their family trade! This story began with ceramics sculptor Chris Bramble becoming a father. Chris has been making ceramic art for over 30 years, also teaching in schools and colleges. Chris has twin daughters called Freya and Yolande who both grew up with clay at their fingertips, always helping out although originally taking their father's craft for granted, they are now both part of a growing pottery business. Freya is a fine artist who wants to get everybody involved. She started teaching children during her studies in Fine art and everything began to grow from there. Yolande is a theatre practitioner specialising in participatory theatre and sensory based arts. They also have Michael, our technician and a group of helpers that they teach in exchange for helping them out with all the daily chores.

Together Freya's Clay Club love to make art with people of all ages. They love it because it teaches them about the simplicity of life and allows them to offer a bespoke pottery service, that is both small and intimate, with a style that is unique. They have found ways to quickly relate a beginners hand to clay for the first time and an affinity in pushing experienced potters to the next level of their learning.

Freya was a brilliant teacher. She provided incredibly clear instruction in a very relaxed setting. And made something potentially incredibly difficult feel really achievable to a complete novice. All the staff were super helpful. Thank you Freya x

Freya's studio has a great atmosphere and it's evident how talented the potters are. It was clear from the start how knowledgeable Freya is and how experienced she is at teaching. We had plenty of materials, a lot of time on the wheel and Freya was always able to help if things went wrong!

I have wanted to try pottery throwing for a long time! This class seemed perfect as it focused solely on wheel work. It did not disappoint! Freya is a great teacher and explains everything so well! We all managed to make around 6 pots/bowls each in the time we had. The time flew by! I could have spent all day there it was so much fun! I am certainly heading back to do more there and I would highly recommend the class to anyone who wants to try this amazing craft out.

Freya is a great teacher, and we had a lovely time using the wheel to make different cylinders and bowls. Would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to learn some pottery basics in a relaxed and fun environment.
