Mike Kane Pottery


Established in 2010, High Watch Crafts is run by Jane & Mike Kane from their studio overlooking the beautiful peak of High Watch in Weardale.

Water colour painting / pottery / picture framing / art clubs are just some of the opportunities available. Finished pieces are also available to purchase as well as bespoke requests. For more information please feel free to get in touch!



Try your hand (and leg!) at the pole lathe, an ancient technology used for turning green wood. This was how bowls, rolling pins, stools, chairs, in fact every turned wooden object was once made. Courses are on demand and can be run for just two people from a day to a full week.
Alternatively learn the ancient skill of willow basketry - simple yet very satisfying.
