I am a qualified and experienced teacher and before starting my business Soul Fired Ceramics I taught secondary and further education. I loved teaching and I love pottery, so combining these two things seemed a very natural and positive progression.
I offer individual tuition and small group courses where you can learn and develop a range of skills including throwing, hand-building and glaze techniques whilst also experiencing the theraputic benefits of pottery.
I prefer to keep my group pottery courses small, a max of 4 people per session, in order to be able to give each person the individual tuition, support and encouragement to gain the skills and confidence to create their own pottery designs.
All tuition, equipment, tools, materials and kiln firings are included. Please wear clothes you won't mind getting mucky and bring an apron. Refreshments will be provided.
All workshops take place at my purpose-built home studio in the village of Winterslow near Salisbury.

During this short course you and a friend (or friends) will experience the complete pottery process from making to glazing. In the first session you will learn the skills of hand building and create 2 pots using these techniques. You will also be given tuition in throwing techniques on the potters wheel.
Your pots will be bisque fired and then during the second session you will glaze your pots.
