Loaf Pottery is an Irish pottery brand based in Crawfordsburn County Down with a social purpose at heart

What makes our pottery so special, is that we are part of NOW Group, a social enterprise supporting people with disabilities and autism into jobs with a future. The profits from our beautiful, handcrafted artisan pottery are reinvested to support NOW Group services, we like to call it 'Pottery with Purpose'.

Loaf Pottery runs an exciting programme of pottery classes in Northern Ireland throughout the year. Our Pottery is available to book for private hire for meetings, parties and other events.


The Pottery is located on Main Street in Crawfordsburn on the site of the former Pinewood Pottery. NOW Group secured funding from Ards and North Down Borough Council, Ulster Garden Villages, the Coastal Communities Fund and George Best Belfast City Airport to renovate the space after being contacted by local residents who were keen to see the pottery restored and open to the community again.


The Pottery offers a variety of activities including pottery painting classes in Northern Ireland, wheel throwing classes and much more! Our café in Bangor serves great coffee, deli sharing boards, artisan wood fired pizzas and Loaf’s award winning sausage rolls. Our pizza and pottery workshops in Bangor are a big favourite so remember to book early.
