Event description

Description

Factory tour lasting 45-60 minutes. In the morning 2 groups of 15 led by Mark Winkle, Works Manager, and James Otter, Director. In the afternoon, 1 group of 15 led by James Otter.

Our factory tours are the perfect way to find out about where your clay comes from and the love, attention and hours and hours of work that go into each and every bag of clay. See our unique panmills in operation and learn what makes our clay so special.

Not suitable for children under 16 years of age for Health & Safety reasons.

We are fortunate to occupy a historic factory, and as such in places the ground is uneven/slippery and there are steps to navigate. Sturdy footwear is essential. We regret that many parts of our premises do not have disabled access.
