Rossa Pottery

rossa pottery potter working at wheel
Rossa Pottery is Ireland’s oldest handmade pottery. It was established in 1962 by Ned Walsh in a stable at the back of a pub on Main Street Cashel. Ned then moved his small workshop to where it is still made today by his son Alan and his wife Sarah right in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East.

Go back in time to this traditional workshop and create your own family heirloom by visiting them for private one to one tuition from Master Potter Alan. Watch him expertly handle the potter’s wheel with ease and then let the clay come to life within your own hands with Alan’s wealth of knowledge for the craft.

Have fun creating your very own art piece while learning about the different stages of pottery making. Your creation will get fired in their Kiln and glazed, and when ready they will ship it to your home.

Hear their fascinating story of Presidents, Diplomats and Queen Elizabeth owning their own piece of Rossa Pottery.

See pieces of vintage Rossa in their showroom museum and sit on Ned’s old kick wheel which he made all those years ago.

Masterclass Suitable for Two People. Family Options also Available.
