Classes & Workshops

Nothing lights my soul more than sharing the magic of pottery, especially the potter’s wheel.

The Ceramics Studio, run out of my sky-lit loft studio in Ettington, Warwickshire is a place to learn all aspects of the craft of pottery in a relaxed and friendly environment. Most of our pottery classes are suitable for beginners and perfect for nervous learners. Our teaching emphasis is on you having an enjoyable experience while learning a new skill. There are also opportunities to develop your skills further into a regular studio user or even a supported maker from your own space with our Pottery Geeks program.

The Ceramics Studio now runs online video courses! Find out more here.

“You can bring your own idea and she will help bring them to life or choose to let her guide and inspire you! Time seems to move at a different speed here.”

“The course has delivered even more than I hoped for; expert guidance whilst allowing me to find my own niche and working style, a relaxed and fun environment with wonderful, likeminded potters and just the right amount of patience and encouragement to make this novice potter feel like I could one day produce something display worthy.”

– Jaime, Biscester
