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: her range of pottery is sold in The Shop.
Cream teas are served in the Summer season,soup and cake in the winter season and Throwing Courses are run year-round.
If you would like to see how Joss makes pots from materials found on Dartmoor using an 'anagama' kiln, please view the short film found on The Pottery page of this website. Joss at Powdermills Facebook page gives you an as-it-happens insight into current activities at the pottery (you can also find Powdermills Pottery on Instagram).
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.
The pottery shop is open for pot sales and refreshments on Saturdays and Sundays (not bank holidays).between 10.30am and 4.30pm, year round.
