Clay Workshops from my studio

One-Day workshops

10am – 4pm

There are a wide range of tasks available which are suitable for even the complete beginner. These workshops are also a great opportunity for the more experienced artist to explore their own ideas with my support.

£60 per person, including a homemade lunch.
All tools and equipment are provided, with a charge made on the day to cover the cost of firing and the quantity of materials that you use. Your work will normally be ready to collect within three weeks. All workshops with the exception of my Mugs and Jugs workshop are designed so that you can complete the task on the day. With the Mugs and Jugs workshop you would need to come back to my studio for a half day in order to glaze your work and subsequently have it fired again; this costs an additional £25. Although unnecessary, a similar arrangement can be made for any workshop if you specifically want to add glaze to work that you have made. Contact me to discuss options for glazing.

GREEN-MAN MASK (21 April 2018)

Make a mask to go in your garden. You will use images of historical Green men and a wide range of examples of my own work to inspire you to create a ceramic mask of your own. Your mask will be made with crank clay fired to stoneware making it frost proof and suitable to be placed outdoors.


Make a panel based on an individual building or even a complex street scene. Figure stencils, typeface and a wide range of textural materials will enable you to create a finely detailed clay panel. You can work from one of my designs, bring in a photo of a specific building or just let your imagination run wild. I will show you how to add colour in your own time.


Weekend workshops

These provide the opportunity to make more ambitious pieces of work such as bird houses and animal sculptures. Contact me for more information.
