Lessons are focused upon student lead exploration of themes and values alongside development of fundamental skills in ceramics.
Beyond basic technique different processes and their lessons are built by what the student wishes and should learn, such is mold making, glaze experiementation, raku, the firing process, how materials work, clay body experiementation, experimental building processes, throwing and more.

My grandmother started me off in ceramics when I was 8, my mother needed babysitting while she worked in Gosport and Grandma would take me to a community pottery group.
I was lucky, I looked forward to every Wednesday when I'd talk to different studio members teasing lessons from them while helping with chores around the place like cleaning tools, using the pugmill and sieving glazes. Though I was young I learnt various bits from different members.
In my early teens I started becoming heavily interested in ceramics. I taught myself throwing, glaze making and other processes integral to the practise during my art foundation and eventually fleshed out more of my knowledge during a BA(hons) in Ceramics from Cardiff Metropolitan University. Since my degree I have been exploring my ideas, making and delving further into glaze alchemy.
