Denby Discovery Experience

14th June 2021 - 31st December 2021

Every piece of Denby has a story from the lives that inspire it to the hands that shape it.

Follow our making journey and find out how Denby is made from clay to cup in the Denby Discovery Experience.

Did you know, it takes 20 pairs of hands to craft each Denby piece? From sponging and fettling to kiln firing and decorating, let us guide you through each of the different techniques and processes that our skilled craftspeople take to transform our Derbyshire clay into your favourite Denby pieces.

Find out why our hardy clay still comes from the original clay seam that was discovered here in 1809 and the magic ingredients that make our pottery so incredibly strong. With the chance to get up close to some of the making tools and moulds taken from inside the factory, as well as a peek inside one of our retired kilns, there really is something for everybody to enjoy during this fun and informative experience. All within an easy reach of our Pottery Village shops and eateries, without needing to step inside our Derbyshire factory.

Complete your Denby Discovery experience with a complimentary cuppa and cake at Bourne’s Coffee Shop & Bistro (a soft drink alternative is also available).

Adult £12, Child £10 Senior £10.80
