Pottery Workshops

I have a background in education and I love sharing the joy of creating with clay. It feels like a natural extension of my time as a teacher.

Clay has a soothing quality, it is of the Earth and working with it is very grounding. It has been used through the millennia to make sculptures as well as functional pots. It is wonderful to watch someone start with a lump of clay and see the vast diversity of what can be made, so much fun. I hope you will come and join me!
