Clay Hill Potters are a group of over 30 pottery enthusiasts and the club is named after an adjoining hill called Clay Hill.
Many of us at one time attended pottery classes at the Five Acres College near Berry Hill, Coleford.
In 2007 the College closed their pottery course and we were in the fortunate position to be able to buy the equipment from them. We were very generously offered a fine set of single story barns in a beautiful location overlooking the River Severn near Newnham on Severn. We transported all the things we had bought across the Forest of Dean to our new home.
We not only brought the kilns, wheels, pug mills, cabinets, tables, chairs, but we hired our teacher Joan Doherty too.
