About Parkwood Pottery
Parkwood Pottery is a self-funding project and working pottery within Parkwood Centre in Alfreton, Derbyshire - a Derbyshire County Council centre offering meaningful day opportunities for adults who have a learning disability.
Since 2007, our ethos has been celebrating and developing the skills of our team of potters, both individually and as a successful small business. By providing training in pottery skills and a supportive work experience environment, we offer opportunities for developing individual creativity, confidence, social skills and team working.
We exhibit and sell our studio pottery in outlets and at arts events across the East Midlands and online through independent artisan businesses. We also work with businesses to develop products unique to them.
You're welcome to visit us! You can see how we work and buy from our gallery shop, which is part of our studio - we are also happy to take specific orders from individual customers.
We see our pots as pieces of art that can be used every day.
