Milland Pottery is tucked away in the beautiful rural valley of Milland in Hampshire / Sussex. It is run by ceramicist, Angela Carter. Situated 1 mile off the B2070 Liphook - Petersfield road, just 5 miles from Midhurst in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the pottery is open most weekdays and Saturdays (not Sundays or Mondays). It is advisable to telephone before visiting, 01428 741530.

Pots are produced on the potter's wheel using a red earthenware clay and decorated with coloured slips under a transparent glaze. Most of the pots are functional, either one-offs or small production runs. Some pots are glazed on the inside but the exterior is decorated with slips, burnished and left unglazed.

Workshop

Over the winter of 2019-2020 the pottery was upgraded by our adjoining timber company, Timber Resources. The old workshop floor was damp and the front wall suffering from rot. The ceiling has been opened up and large windows added to give a wonderful large, airy open space with plenty of room for the 4 wheels and a large table for hand building. Larger groups can now be comfortably accommodated.

Pottery Workshops

Clay is one of the most satisfying and soothing materials to work with. In its most simple form it can be dug from the ground and fashioned into simple forms and heated to a high temperature (fired) to form a usable pot. Clay is made up of millions of tiny plate shaped particles. When water is present in the correct proportion these particles will slide easily over each other without breaking and the clay can be easily moulded or shaped. From the earliest times people have used the qualities of clay to form functional and decorative artefacts.

At Milland Pottery, we like to share the excitement of shaping a lump of clay into a pot. The pottery is well known for workshops for children and adults. Sessions are usually one, one and a half or two hours long. To gain a greater understanding of the processes involved in making pots it is preferable to make a couple of visits, if possible. Groups are kept small so everyone gets plenty of attention. While most people focus on making pots on the wheel, techniques of hand building can also be tried out. Many adults find making pots on the wheel so absorbing that all life's stresses get forgotten for a while.

Our History

pottery classes Hampshire


Started in austere times after the Second World War by Jane Hawkins (nee Aburrow), the pottery was built using traditional techniques of wattle and daub and chestnut timbers cut from the nearby woods.

Angela Dannreuther Carter and Jane Hawkins worked together at Milland Pottery for many years until Jane's retirement.

Jane studied at Guildford Art School before setting up the pottery at Milland in 1947.

In the early days she worked with fellow potter, Ray Marshall and later with her husband George Hawkins until his death in 1977.

Angela joined Jane in 1979 after a three year Ceramics course at West Surrey College of Art & Design, Farnham. Jane worked at the pottery until she finally retired aged 80, she died in May 2016.

Hampshire Artists Cooperative

Website: http://www.hampshireartistscooperative.co.uk - Email: info@hampshireartistscooperative.co.uk

Angela is also a member of the Hampshire Artists Cooperative.
The Hampshire Artists Co-operative is an artist led exhibiting group, whose members vary from painters to glassmakers with ceramics, jewellery and textiles, as well as printmaking and drawing all being represented. Formed in 2007, the group was set up to bring together artists and craftspeople in Hampshire to exhibit a range of Contemporary Art and Crafts at The Selborne Gallery, Selborne Hants. As the Selborne Gallery has been sold the artists no longer has a permanent home.

The group now exhibits at various local venues. Since its inception the standard of work produced by the members of HAC has been high, and the determination to maintain the quality means that all new members have to go through a vetting procedure. The members of the group have developed close bonds, this can be seen in the unique way of juxtaposing the different disciplines to show off the diverse techniques and mediums used by members.

The variety of work shown at each exhibition means that there is always something fresh and new to see, in a range of prices to suit all budgets. To keep in touch with HAC's news and events please go to www.hampshireartistscooperative.co.uk or find us on Facebook. The website has links to each member.
