Fired Art Designs opened a “Paint Your Own Pottery Studio” in 1986 in Pontefract, West Yorkshire by owner Rachel Byass. Rachel loves to provide customers with a relaxing and enjoyable experience, helping to bring out the creativity in all ages.
The “Paint your Own Pottery” Studio seats up to 22 people. The studio is just over 200 years old and was an old Mill.
In recent years another large room has being added which has 5 pottery wheels, 2 slab rollers and 6 large extrudes with lots of other tools to make “Claying around” with clay a lot of fun. The free car park has also being re done to hold up to 8 cars. The studio has full wheelchair access.
Rachel enjoys teaching all ability as well as special needs.
Rachel trained in Ceramics/Pottery and Decorative Art, both in the UK as well as in the US and Canada. She gained many teaching Certifications in these subjects. Rachel loves to run Children’s Parties, Hen/ Stag nights or afternoons, Lady’s nights and one to one wheel experiences. We do lots of one to one as well as small groups.
