WORKING STUDIO

U3A-group-Feb-2017.jpg

I have been teaching pottery since 1973 (I have lost count of how many people I have taught to make pots!).  I am happy to say that a lot of them are still potters and several still working from my studio.  For the last few years I have been adapting my studio from a teaching studio to a working studio. I no longer teach beginners (but there is an option for beginners to join the Thursday morning session and receive tuition from Meriel May).  

My objective is to offer really good facilities to people who want to make their own pots but don’t want the hassles of having their own studios.  I supply clay, firings, glazing (within reason!) and assistance where needed during ‘class’ or studio session hours.  I handle each pot that is made in the studio and between myself and Watson Nyambeni who has worked with me for nearly 30 years, the studio has always operated very efficiently. To keep things simple, people join a class / studio session and that enables them 12 hours of studio time every four weeks - this can be whenever it suits them (including evenings and over weekends) but I am only in attendance during session hours.  Any time above the 12 hours is logged and paid at an hourly rate.  

There are four studio sessions per week (where I am available):  

- Tuesday evening 5.30 - 8.30.  

- Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9-12.  

THE STUDIO WILL BE AVAILABLE TO WORK IN ON THE FOLLOWING BASIS:  WEAR A MASK, USE THE HAND SANITISER PROVIDED AND PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING. PLEASE DO NOT COME IF YOUR HEALTH (OR THAT OF ANY MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD) IS COMPROMISED.
