What you'll do

Down the garden path, surrounded by lush greenery and mountain views leads the way to my working studio space. Here you will be exposed to the wonders of making things from clay and turning them into a permanent ceramic objects. You will be shown and have the opportunity to handle numerous examples of ceramic / pottery pieces learning about the processes used in making these pieces. You can choose from a menu of achievable hand-building projects that will allow you to explore artistic and practical creative expression using the clay medium. I will teach you the fundamentals of hand-building guiding you through the process of creating your own piece / pieces. Depending on your choice of project you learn techniques such as using coils, extruding, pinching, slabs and moulds for example, as well as the option of creating surface decoration using handmade stamps, fabrics and natural textures such as leaves and she-oaks. This experience is a unique opportunity to spend four gloriously relaxing and highly informative hours immersed in an artists studio space. Exploring your own creativity through making objects from clay, I will ignite a passion for pottery within you.

I have been making and teaching for over twenty years. I gained a fine art honours degree in the UK before completing my professional teaching qualification and moving to Australia. My dreams of living in the countryside and having a proper studio space, finally came true after moving to Warburton in late 2016. Once a dingy spider filled old shed, I have turned this space into a bright clean and organised art studio where I blissfully spend my time playing with clay creating ceramics and teaching my passion to others. I look forward to sharing my little piece of pottery paradise with you.
