Pottery courses, tasters and events.

Enjoy the therapeutic benefits of clay while learning new skills, mindfully and at your own pace.

The Studio

Eight steel-framed windows run along the length of my studio and tell the story of its proud industrial past. A pair of hands and months of hard work have brought this historic workshop unit back to life, creating a new home for ceramics in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. The studio is fully equipped to facilitate a variety of ceramics processes and regularly opens its doors to the public for pottery courses, tasters and events.

Marbled Nestling Plates Course | £90

3 weeks, Tuesday 6:30pm-9pm, 12th Nov-26th Nov

 

Every clay bears a different story. And what better way to tell a story than over a meal served on a set of plates that you’ve made yourself?

This workshop will take you on an exploration of colour and texture within ceramics as you learn how to mix your own unique blend of clay and create marbled effects. We will then use the process of slab building over plaster moulds to make a set of three nestling plates – dinner, side, and dessert – showcasing the swirly patterns of your clay canvas. The last session will introduce you to the art of glazing in order to finalise your pieces, making them functional and food-safe.
