classes and workshops


I offer a range of classes at my central Brighton studio. I am currently able to book in one-to-one sessions at my studio, or sessions for two people. These are available to book for this Spring (2021) (subject to Covid restrictions) and can be purchased through the online shop. If there are no suitable dates listed on the shop page, you can buy a voucher as a gift or for yourself and we can arrange a session at a later date (email me for details).

I offer sessions in:

  • throwing for beginners
  • throwing with porcelain
  • hand-building with ceramics (including slab-building and coiling)
  • making ceramic spoons
  • ceramic impressions – using natural materials for mark-making in ceramics
  • working with mixed media and found objects

Workshops can be for a half day or a full day. The day’s session can be tailored to your requirements and can be designed as taster days for beginners or for those wishing to improve their existing skills. Follow-up or advanced sessions can include turning/trimming vessels and adding handles, glaze preparation, colouring clay or further mixed media development.

I have two potter’s wheels, so in throwing workshops for one or two people, you can have your own dedicated wheel for the day. I have a large workbench area that can accommodate groups of up to 5 makers at a time along with a large range of tools and equipment.

Email me to find out more.
