Courses
Last year we had a major rebuild of the pottery studio. It is now a fantastic place to work in. It is warm and light and welcoming. We have two continental kick wheels and three electric wheels.
I offer a variety of workshops, courses and pottery retreats. I aim to create a calm space in which students can learn, reflect and share within a relaxed, supportive and inspiring environment and hopefully find themselves restored by the magic both of the place and the clay.
