Open to All regardless of background or ability. Sessions can be adapted based on individual needs. 

Eastgate Creative Hwb CIC worked in partnership Mena Williams of Mena Ceramics to deliver the project. Mena’s Appletree Pottery Studio is a short walk from our shop/gallery, and is within walking distance of both the train station and bus stops so easily accessible by public transport.

What else was part of the project?

We also offered the young carers group from Pembroke Dock Community School an opportunity to visit the pottery studio and make ‘whimsies’ (small pottery creations).
