Clay Workshops from my studio
Workshops of one or more days
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. The price includes a light homemade lunch and all tools and equipment are provided, with a charge made on the day to cover the cost of a firing and the quantity of materials that you use. Your work will normally be ready to collect within three weeks. Contact me to discuss options for glazing.
