About us

Tin Can Pottery is more than just a pottery studio, it is a really special space for people who want to get creative with clay and enjoy the company of others.

Our courses will teach you new skills and encourage you to explore clay in a calm and relaxing rural environment.

Surrounded by fields, the studio is only 8 miles from King's Lynn, 15 mins to Sandringham Estate and a 40 minute drive to the stunning unspoilt North Norfolk coastline.
