CLAY - a simple material, yet it has so much potential to help you develop your creative talents in a three dimensional form. For a beginner, these courses present the perfect opportunity to gain confidence in the basic ceramic techniques (coiling, pinching, slab building, and throwing). You will also learn various decorative techniques and how to apply your own glazes. If you are already a ceramic convert, you will have the scope to further develop, apply and express your ideas and skills within a friendly and nurturing environment. Materials and firings are included.

Classes take place in my workshop which is one of the Harley Foundation studios at Welbeck, conveniently located on the A60, just 15 minutes from the A1 and M1.


Julia I really want to thank you for your kind and patient tutoring. You are very professional and you have a lovely calm manner. You have been very generous with your personal attention and guidance.

Barbara So very much enjoyed my coiling day - you have a wonderfully easy style of teaching.

Judy Thank you for giving me a life long love for ceramics.
