Our Happy Place
The studio is a wonderful place to be, full of chatter from busy classes, whirling wheels, slapping of clay, kettle boiling, friendly catch ups and the general hustle and bustle of studio life. CPWF studio has amazing facilities housed in a large warehouse just off Penarth Road in Freemans Parc. We are proud to offer an excellent range of equipment from throwing wheels to large spacious hand building areas right through to all the tools you may need, from rolling pins to cutting wires and so on. We welcome any level of potter to join our studio through the membership we offer. Its a great space for any Team Building Events or Parties and we also love to open our doors to any Youth Groups, Scout groups and Schools.
The main aim here at CPWF is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for those who have discovered the wonders of clay or perhaps just want to get their hands dirty. We strongly believe that the studio is a place where you can be free from the pressure of daily life, have some time out to be creative and spend some time in the moment of making.
