Studio visit & demonstration at Port Isaac Pottery
January 20th 2pm - 4pm
Cost £7.50 ( £10 non members)
We have been invited by Barbara Hawkins to look around the pottery that she and her husband Bill have run for many years at Port Isaac. She will also demonstrate some decorating techniques during the afternoon.
Barbara has unique artistic & decorating skills working both on clay and canvas. She met Bill at art school over 30 years ago when she was training as a graphic artist and he as a potter. They have built up a partnership working together in Port Isaac. Their home/studio is the old Methodist Chapel next to the harbour and the original organ and galleried seating area are intact.
Michael and Barbara are fellows of the Craft Potters Association
"All of our pieces are handmade to the highest standards and we take pride in the high quality of our work. Precious metal lustres and gold are applied and each piece has at least three firings in both our electric and oil-fired kilns. The bold and elegant forms complement the watercolour-style decoration, which are often inspired by our local surroundings. The small harbour, the fish, the local flora and fauna provide unlimited design potential for both the form and decoration of our pottery."
