"We had a great afternoon at my daughter's party with Go Potty as our entertainment. The guests ranged from 4 years to 40 somethings and everyone had a go on the potter's wheel. With Martin's calm, patient encouragement we all produced pots we could be proud of! It was a relaxed, fun time and I would recommend it for anyone. It's a really different idea to the usual party nonsense, you come away with something to keep forever and it works out as really good value. Can't recommend Martin & Go Potty enough"

"Thank you Martin for making Isabella's birthday party such fun and a bit different! Isabella and her 10 friends had a fantastic time making different shaped pots, they were certainly very pleased with their creations and could't wait to take them home. They were very proud of their painted pots too. You were very patient with all the excited girls!"

Thanks Again, Kathryn Hutchinson


Hi Martin,

Just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job at Pollyanna's birthday party. All the kids loved their pots and had a great time painting them.

Many thanks, Norman Rostron.




If you are looking for a party with a difference, whether it's for adults or children, then look no further. I'll bring all the equipment and materials needed to provide your guests with an unforgettable pottery workshop experience!

Each guest can choose a shape they would like to achieve. They will then be assisted to throw a pot on the wheel and once satisfied with their creation, take it off and marvel at their skill and artistic ability!

Anyone of any age or level of ability can participate and I will always make sure that everyone ends up with a pot to be proud of.

I use air drying clay so there is no need for a kiln. Just let the pots dry out for a couple of days then gain further enjoyment as you paint them with a design of your choice.

All that I require at your home or party venue, is a small space with access to a sink and 13 amp socket. Some boards or a table to put the finished pots on will also be useful. 

Childrens' parties are often only for a couple of hours. As a result, I try to limit the number taking part in the activity to 12, (larger numbers are possible). This means I can spend around ten minutes with each participant. I will also provide a protective box for all the party guests to take home their finished pot. I can run the pottery alongside any other party activities or games you may have planned.

The cost for a childrens' party is £9.00 per head. Alternatively I can provide finished pots for the children to paint or balls of clay to create, whilst they wait for their turn at the wheel (£3.00 per head extra).

All paint, brushes and aprons are provided. 

There is a minimum charge of £85 for two hours if there are less than nine taking part.

For Adult parties, Individual tuition, functions or events, please contact me to discuss your requirements.


Take a look at the video to see how a child will be assisted. This is the quickest scenario, the more time I have, then the more input the participant will have.


Your location?

Just a note to say that I'm located in Manchester but always willing to travel. Please don't hesitate to contact me, no matter where you are.
