2012 saw the scaling down of workshops and courses after our move to the new studio (more comfortable but smaller).

I have always enjoyed teaching and am happy to accommodate the occasional individual or small group of up to three students in the new studio.  

Please contact me for further information and we can work on a programme that will suit you. Areas of interest can include improver throwing, advanced throwing techniques, throwing large pots, altering forms on and off the wheel, glazing and kiln building and firing. Firings may be included depending on time availability.
