Pottery classes & Studio services

About Us

Taz Pollard and Nicola Crocker are friends, colleagues and business professionals working and living in North Devon. Brought together through their love of clay, they set up North Devon Ceramics Academy & Studio (NDcaas).

Pots have been made in North Devon since the middle ages using local clay from nearby Fremington.  This craft is perfect for beginners right through to professionals and our aim is through our Pottery Classes to enrich and teach others to embrase this tradition in a fun and playful way.


Our popular term time classes show as sold out as we advertise any places through our Enews. Please do sign up to hear of any places that become available and forthcoming workshops.
