  1. Hi I’m enquiring about classes. I live in Heaton moor so not far away, but you have any space after Easter ? And if I could get a group of people could your ever do a Saturday class ?

  2. Hello
    Do you have any spaces in your classes? I have just moved to Heaton Mersey and would like to meet you and like minded aspiring potters!
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards


  3. Hello,

    I was wondering if you had any spaces on one of your evening classes? I have two friends who’d like to come as well so there’s 3 of us in total.

    Many thanks


    • Hello Laura. At the moment all the classes are full, however, due to the ad hoc nature of the classes, I do have occational availability. If you would like to be on a waiting list for a cancellation, please let me know. Sorry to disappoint… Tone

  4. Hi Tone. I came to your house and studio when the arts trail was on in the summer. My daughter threw a pot in Dartington this year and really got the bug! So I wondered if I might be able to arrange a private session with you for her birthday on 1st January (she’ll be 8)? Obviously it won’t be on the day itself but if you could let me know what your availability is in the new year that’d be great. Thanks, Polly

    • Hello Polly. I will be back in the studio from 5th January. I am available for private sessions on Monday and Thursday after school (4pm onwards) and most weekends. One hour is typically enough. Please contact me on email tonevonkrogh@yahoo.com to arrange further. I do gift vouchers. Best wishes,


  5. Hi Tone, I’m looking to book a pottery class for my husband as a present. He is interested in ceramics and has become more enthused since the programme ‘great pottery thrown down’. We live in the Stockport area. I found you whilst googling and wondered if you still did teaching/classes? Many thanks, Amy

    • Hello Amy. I still run weekly classes, it is looking like I will have one space becoming vacant in the Thursday evening class from January 7th. The class is on 7.30-9.30pm and will cost £15 per session including up to 2kg Clay, glazes and firings. Extra Clay will be charged at cost. I do gift vouchers. If you would like to buy any, please contact me on email tonevonkrogh@yahoo.com by Saturday evening as the studio is closing for Christmas. Best wishes, Tone

  6. Hi there Tone. Please can you place me in the waiting list for pottery classes. I would like to attend every week so if a slot comes up please can you let me know. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon x


  7. Hi,

    I’d like to meet a few weeks for my friend’s birthday – she is a complete beginner. Do you have any places free in your evening classes, and can I block book 4-6 weeks? Or as suggested in previous postings, could look at booking private lessons for her, but may be more fun in a group…



  8. Hi there, I’m very interested in attending one of you Wednesday evening pottery classes. If you could let me know when you have any availability that would be fabulous.

    I have not attempted pottery before!

    Best wishes,

  9. Hello there.

    I would love to join your evening class. A Tues or Thurs, no preference. I can attend every week either day. Messing about with clay is high on my “bucket” list. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

  10. Hi Tone,
    I would like to buy a gift voucher for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. Can I buy one for both of us and how long would they be valid for?
    Thanks for your reply,


    • Hello Alison, I am currently going through my waiting list in preparation for classes starting back up in Septmenber. I will keep you posted if there is anything possible. Looking for larger premises, too! Best wishes, Tone

  11. Hi Tone, I hope you’re well – We met when I visited you with my Mum during the Heaton Moor Arts Trail. I was pregnant but have now had my baby and was hoping to start coming to one of your classes the week after next, but it looks like you might be full for the foreseeable? If you could let me know it’d be much appreciated. Many thanks, Emma

  12. Please let me know when your next sessions are with vacancies. From september during yhe day. I am a complete beginner having never done pottery before.
    Thank you
    Karen x

  13. Dear Tone,

    Very interested to purchase a few sessions of the classes for my partner as a Christmas gift, do you have any availability for spaces starting in the new year?
