My Background

After qualifying in BA (Hons) ceramics in 1995 at Bristol University, I went on to combine my love of art with a 10 year career in people development. I furthered this interest in 2009 by training as a holistic therapist, qualifying in Reiki and Crystal Therapy. It only occurred to me years later that in effect both ceramics and crystal therapy use the same minerals and elements of the earth!

It felt natural, therefore, for me to combine my passion for art, nature and healing therapy by offering pottery tuition in different guises. I was fortunate enough to teach Pottery Lessons to children at Clifton High School for several years. This supplemented my existing skills working with people of all ages and abilities.

Types of Pottery Lessons and Tuition

I offer tailored in person tuition on an hourly basis (£50) to suit all levels of experience. From complete novice, to students who wish to take their skills to the next level. My tuition is usually carried out on a 1:1 basis because I like to give my full attention to students, but occasionally I will also accept small intimate groups of up to 3 people. Please contact me to arrange dates and payment.

I also offer online pottery courses enabling you to learn at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. If you take this option, I am happy to give additional advice via phone, email and zoom to support your learning.

Please explore the image gallery below and testimonials from my lovely students…as Pablo Picasso once said “Art washes away from the Soul the dust of every day life” and this is so true when working with the wonderful properties of clay.

Location

My Pottery Studio has relocated from Bristol to Bleadon Village in North Somerset, BA24 0NA in the (UK) and will be open for 1:1 pottery tuition from June 2021.
