OPENING WEEKEND! We are opening at the Shieldfield Centre on Friday 22 October – come and join us!


Ceramic Workshop

The Ceramic Workshop at Carliol House, is run by NewBridge members Stephen Brown (Ouseburn Pottery) and Juliet Fleming (GOLDTAPPED). The on-site kilns can fire stoneware and earthenware clay, which can be bought in the workshop or you can bring your own. There’s also a selection of glazes, which can be used after bisque firing your ceramics.

Please note the Ceramic Workshop is currently closed while The NewBridge Project relocates to The Shieldfield Centre. We aim to reopen in our new premises in Autumn 2021.
