This year has continued to be very busy. I'm currently getting ready for my first Art in Clay, to be held at Hatfield House, from 19th to 21st August.
There will be an open studio day at Makers' Yard on Saturday 27th August, 10.00am-5.00pm. I will be in Studio One. Do come along and have a look around the studios, buy work produced by the designer-makers based at Makers’ Yard and find out more about my pottery classes and other workshops.
This is followed by the inaugural Ceramics in Southwell, Nottinghamshire on the Sunday 28th August. This coincides with the Southwell Music Festival.
I am privileged to have been selected for the Bils and Rye Emerging Potters Exhibition in North Yorkshire from 1st September to 31st October and closer to home a piece of work has been selected to be exhibited in the Summer Art Trail, Leicester from 20th to the 29th August.
And finally I will be showing at Innovations in Ceramic Art at the Guildhall, Cambridge on the 5th and 6th November.
Join me for a family friendly creative pottery session at Makers’ Yard, where your child can enjoy hands-on making activities during the school holidays.
The 2 hour sessions will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays during school holidays from 11.00am-1.00pm or 2.00-4.00pm. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Each session includes the option of making one item following the theme of the day which could be, for example, making a piggy bank or making and decorating a tile. There will also be the chance to have a go on a potter’s wheel. After this there is a process of drying, firing and glazing which takes between 4-6 weeks.
The cost is £15 per child per workshop. This includes materials, firing and glazing one piece of work. Additional pieces can be made at a charge of £5 per kg of clay used.
Postage is available for those who are not able to collect their work.
Postage to the UK will be charged at:
1 Piece £4.50. 2 Pieces £6.50. 3 Pieces £9.00. 4 Pieces £15.00.
Places are limited, so booking and pre-payment is required to secure your place. Email email@example.com for further details.
