Welcome to Sutton Pottery
Sutton Pottery was established by Malcolm Flatman in 1977 in the Broadland village of Sutton, near Stalham, Norfolk.
Visitors are welcome in the workshop, to browse through the gallery area, where a large range of finished pottery is displayed.
*** THE SUTTON POTTERY "FIRST AND LAST" SALE, with 20% off all stock, is still running. See the online catalogue for availability, or email or phone us about specific items ***
Please check for opening times before a visit.
Malcolm has decided to retire in Spring 2020, but he still has a good selection of his work in stock
He continues to offer pottery lessons until late February 2020 for those wishing to learn to “throw” pots on the potter’s wheel. A session of intensive tuition lasts 3 hours, and takes place on weekdays (mornings or afternoons). Two electric wheels are available, so two people can share the experience and the cost!
Email [email protected] for more details, to book tuition or to buy a lesson gift voucher.
