This book is a handy guide to setting up a pottery workshop. It
covers not only fundamental questions such as types of premises, design
and layout of the workshop, equipment and materials, and how to make
simple tools, but also questions of marketing and promotion, legal
considerations and finance. To illustrate these points, the author
discusses how various potters have tackled the issues raised and gives
illustrations of a wide range of different workshops. The book draws on
the experiences of an international group of artists, and so it will
also be pertinent for potters outside the UK.
This book is a must for those setting up a pottery for the first
time, as well as the established potter who is experiencing difficulty
in one of the areas covered, e.g. promotion and marketing.
