Pilling Pottery

Pilling Pottery was setup by Jim and Vi Cross in 1968, now run by Jim's son Adrian Cross. Northern Kilns Ltd operates two sides to its business, Pilling Pottery and Northern Kilns.

By arrangement Pilling Pottery are able to host children's parties, hen parties and are an ideal option for team building. During school holidays there is a kids club. Let your youngsters create whilst they are off. As well as the popular paint a plate sessions there is also a night school so if you want to learn to create your own piece of pottery then they can help. Alternatively, why not take advantage of one of the special Take Out packages. Take home a bowl of clay with instructions and you can make your own creation at home?

Pilling Pottery incorporates a studio pottery, gallery and shop.

The other side of our business, Northern Kilns, is able to build, install and maintain all kinds of kilns nationwide. See website link below for more information.
