Malcolm Flatman re-assembled a 1945 "pre-fab" bungalow in a large rural garden in North-East Norfolk to serve as workshop, showroom and store-room. He built his own kiln, and a potter's wheel, and much of the other equipment he uses. Visitors are welcome to browse among the finished wares, to view work in progress, and to satisfy their curiosity about the production methods. The building is "open-plan", so all craft processes are clearly visible to the public.
Access is via small ramps, and the workshop is ground-floor only, and steps-free. A small parking area is in the garden, close to the Pottery, and the approach is officially signed from the nearby A149 road.
Regrettably there is neither the space nor the facilities to welcome large groups.
Sutton Pottery is usually open on weekdays (excluding Bank Holidays) 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the year. As these times etc. are subject to change without notice, please phone before a special journey to avoid disappointment.
