OUR STORY

Based in Littledean, Bird’s Pottery first opened its doors in 2018. We are a family run business, that prides itself on giving a quality experience. From the vibrant glazes, clays and paint your own pottery items, our stock is constantly refreshed and carefully selected to ensure we have something for everyone. Keeping up with trends, we are the only pottery in the Gloucestershire to offer pottery sessions on mini wheels!


We also offer traditional pottery, takeaway pottery, after-school club, classes, Parties and Bring a Bottle. Georgie Bird (owner of Bird’s Pottery) shares her expertise to help customers push their creative boundaries to ensure that everyone makes something they can be proud of, whether you wish to get cosy in the converted coach house in the winter or sit out on the flagstone courtyard in the sun, there’s always a place for you at Bird’s Pottery.


​We have over 400 pieces to choose from, starting from £3 upwards. There is no studio fee so the price you pay is for your finished piece.  We welcome drop-ins but the early bird catches the worm, so we do advise customers to book! Bookings can be made by email, direct message and calling our studio directly.
