Powdermills Pottery is housed in granite buildings that were once part of a nineteenth century gunpowder factory. It is found in the very centre of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, and is part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
Powdermills is the home and workplace of potter, Joss Hibbs. In the Shop, her range of pottery is sold alongside a range of housewares hand-crafted by thirty other Dartmoor craft-makers. Cream teas are served in the courtyard in the Summer season, and intensive Throwing Courses are run during Spring and Autumn. New for 2016, the Dartmoor Hill Pony Experience explains the secrets of the 'wild' ponies on Dartmoor.
If you would like to see how Joss makes pots from materials found on Dartmoor using an 'anagama' kiln, please do view the short film found in The Pottery section. Joss' Blog gives you an as-it-happens insight into current activities at the pottery. Happy browsing.
A visit to Powdermills offers a glimpse of all the things Dartmoor has to offer: wild landscape and wildlife (especially birdlife); history and nearby walks to prehistoric sites; local food and time to relax. We look forward to welcoming you here.
