Come and enjoy a relaxing mindful day working in an idyllic garden location. The studio is small so provides space for three people sharing sessions.
One to one tuition is provided and includes a mixture of hand building constructions, press moulding, slabbing and coiling. You will have the opportunity to apply textured surface decoration and coloured slip application.
Sessions will focus tile making, tapas dishes & garden sculptures, depending on group progress.
After graduating from Brighton University in 1993 I have been passionately teaching my craft for the past 22 years to a wide variety of age groups and abilities. I specialise in ceramics and mixed media constructions mainly figurative, organic forms using hand building methods.
