My workshop studio (number 136 in the catalogue) will be open during the nine days from 11am until 5pm each day.
I look forward to meeting you at the studio, where I will be working and will be able to show you my methods of making stoneware pottery. I am happy to answer questions about my work and workshop practice. The pottery showroom is well stocked for you to purchase a piece of my pottery. Prices from £10.00 upwards.

Raku making workshop

A great day was had by all who attended the Raku making workshop down at Nanspean Farmhouse Nr Helston, ready for the kiln firing day over at Feock in July. Sally and Simon Giles hosted the venue at their pottery and supplied everyone with teas, coffees and cakes for the whole day, it was attended by 16 members & non members. The weather was kind by staying dry with a few passing glimpses of sun. We had 9 wheels working at the same, time with throwers, none throwers hand builders and glass makers.
All where very successful in making pots for the July event. Thanks to everyone who made this a good day!
