The real cost of Christmas
And it’s not just packaging and food we’re throwing away. British women will throw away a staggering £676 million worth of Christmas gifts this year and 52% of people will re-gift what they get given over the festive period.
So this Christmas, don’t let your gift be one of the £676 million worth of gifts heading for landfill. Give someone you love a gift they will treasure for years to come.
Give the gift of pottery
54% of us say we prefer to receive a gift that’s been handcrafted. Something that you won’t find on the high street. Something more unique and made with love.
At Grayshott Pottery, we know not everyone has the time to make their own gifts, but we understand the value of giving something handmade by local craftspeople. Something memorable and thoughtful. Something which will last a lifetime.
So, why not consider giving the gift of pottery?
A gift, an heirloom, something practical to use every day. An exclusive piece of handmade pottery from a local business is sure to be something your loved one will treasure forever. Something which won’t find its way to landfill come Boxing Day.
Brighten their everyday with the everyday Grayshott collection
Since 1956, we’ve been crafting beautiful pottery pieces and gifts. Produced using the finest materials, all sourced from within the UK, our pottery pieces are made and painted by hand by our team of passionate potters.
Our beautiful everyday collections include exclusive tableware ranges for the house-proud interior fanatics, handcrafted tea sets to make that morning cuppa a bit more special and unique cookware perfect for the budding chef.
Give a gift steeped history and heritage
The origins of Dartington Pottery lie in the early 1930’s when Bernard Leach, writer of ‘A Potter’s Book’, and his son David set up the first pottery at the Dartington Hall Estate, South Devon. In 2005, Grayshott Pottery acquired Dartington Pottery to continue the making of their well respected and collectable studio ceramics.
Dartington Pottery is a collection of hand-painted tableware and statement pieces, signed and stamped by the artists with a pride of craftsmanship. Unique and exclusive, each piece makes the perfect gift for Christmas.
Give the gift of an experience
We know giving the gift of an experience can be just as, or even more, special as a physical item. So, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the crafty people in your life, what about one of our one-day throwing courses?
Our one-day courses are the perfect start for people wanting to try their hand at throwing clay on a potter’s wheel. After the day’s experience one final masterpiece will be fired and glazed for you to collect later! Find out more about the course here.
