Group courses

Do you prefer a creative atmosphere with others? Book a place on one of my courses and explore the world of ceramics with like minded creative people. Learn a new skill, have a chat and have fun together!

You'll be taught a new technique each week to build up your ceramic knowledge, after a few weeks you can have free reign and go back to a previous weeks technique if you'd prefer, the course is for you to create your own ideas and I'm here to support you step by step along the way.

Even if you've attended my courses before you are still encouraged to join us, you will further broaden your skills and knowledge and may be shown new techniques you've not experienced before! Why not have another go at an area you'd like to improve? Or even use each week to make unique presents for the family in time for Christmas!


There's 7 attendees maximum which allows personal one to one tuition for each attendee.


*This year I've slightly tweaked the course with thanks to feedback from previous course attendees that wished they had just a little bit more time to create. The sessions are now 2.5 hours each week which gives you a full 2 hours to get creative!

May / June / July 8 week course - Sunday mornings 10am-12.30

24/31 May | 7/14/21/28 June | 5/12 July

September / October 8 week course - Monday evenings 6-8.30pm 7/14/21/28 September | 5/12/19/26 October

My Christmas workshops will be announced after the summer, so keep an eye out for my festive workshops later in the year!
