No experience in jewellery making is required and there will be plenty of expert guidance on hand and lots of copper to practice with first before making your silver masterpieces! As with all the workshops I run everyone will go home wearing their creations!

Ceramics inspired by the Cornwall land and seascapes.

Her distinctive pots are made from coloured stoneware clay, using oxides and self dug clay. The coloured clays are used as a three-dimensional collage material: layers contrast and merge. Pot bases are thrown, coils added, pinched and scraped into an organic vessel. Burnished with a pebble when leather hard, the pots are through high firing returned to stone.
