The pottery wheels have a remote foot pedal that can be moved to each side depending what is easiest for you. Accessibility: The studio is located in the downstairs level of our home. Access is via the stairs out the front, if you require any assistance to reach the studio please let me know and I can bring you up the driveway in my car. Once at the top of the driveway there is no stairs to access the studio and bathroom.
