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.

£45 per person including drinks and snacks through the day.
All tools and equipment are provided, with a charge made to cover the cost of firing and the materials that you use. Your work will normally be ready to collect within three weeks. Contact me to discuss options for glazing.

GLASS WITH CLAY (18 February)

Make a series of clay and glass tiles or wall panels.

When glass is heated to a very high temperature it melts and creates a beautiful lustrous surface which can be incorporated into your art work by building pockets or indentations into the clay. This is an opportunity to create a series of small pieces or focus on something more ambitious. You can work on your own ideas or use one of my designs. You can bring along your own bits of coloured glass (even bottle glass looks great) or you can buy materials from me.


Make a series of personalised patterned mugs and jugs.

Enjoy creating your own patterned sheets of clay by impressing a wide range of textured objects and surfaces. These sheets are then wrapped around a former to provide the desired shape and handles and spouts are added.


Weekend workshops

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

£90 for two days plus materials. Contact me for dates
