My pottery and workshop is based at my home, in the small Wiltshire village of Winterbourne Stoke, near Stonehenge.

Most of my work is produced within my pottery; however, I also run workshops and events throughout the local area. Including Salisbury Museum, Stonehenge Visitor’s centre, Sarum Academy and Wilton shopping Village.

Most of my work is thrown in Stoneware or white earthenware using an electric wheel. I also enjoy sculpting, slab building or coiling the clay to produce more unique work. I love creating finished pieces with subtle designs, inspired by nature. I appreciate the versatility of clay and seize any opportunity to explore its function and forms.

Over the years, my career has varied widely, but never far from my mind has been my passion to create. Whether this was painting, sculpting or crafting. I have a strong desire to share this with others. I first pursued my interest in clay during A levels in Cornwall and after completing my degree in Kent, I continued to follow my passion in South London, through adult education alongside my career. In 2012 I began working as an apprentice in a working Wiltshire pottery. In 2015 I decided I wanted to set up my own pottery, working independently from home, producing work for galleries, shows and running a variety of pottery workshops, as well as bringing up my three beautiful children.

10 Week Courses

We offer a ten week course for Adults, wishing to take up a new hobby or develop skills in pottery. As a pottery we work alongside the academic year,  with three full terms of hard work and the opportunity to have a lot of fun and make so many amazing creations.

I run classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I run a morning session from 9.30-12.30 and an evening session from 7pm-9.30 pm on both these days.

 

Even if you miss the start of a term you are welcome to join the course, we can adjust the price accordingly.

I welcome students of all abilities, from no experience to reigniting a favourite hobby or past-time. You may just find you have a real talent for all things ceramic!

If you are interested just call 01980620328 for more information.

Facilities

Within the pottery  I have five pottery wheels; four electric wheels and one kick wheel. I have an electric kiln and a hand built raku gas fired kiln, which I built last year. The ten week classes usually consist of a group of 8 people, where people can alternate between throwing practice, hand building and decorating work with slips and glazes. During the winter months there is a little wood-burning stove in the pottery to keep off the winter chill and cake and coffee is provided all year round. Often people come with some idea of what they want to create and I help you to take that inspiration further as well as push you to improve your skills.
