The renamed Lansdown Pottery was initially established in 1981 at William Morris House, a Camphill Community, in Eastington. It had been a part of a group of craft workshops dedicated to providing further education and training in a creative environment for young adults with Learning Difficulties.
On moving to Stroud we felt that it was important to continue the educational and training aspect of our work, by working with the local community, in a much wider way.
Through these aims
1 We have sessions for the public.
2 Offer education and training to local colleges and schools.
3 Provide training for people with learning difficulties.
4 Offer workshop facilities for local craftspeople.
We also felt that it was equally important to have a working pottery that produced commercially with a display of attractive items.
