July Open Studios
My ceramic journey started as a little girl. I would have gladly gone to school every day if we were doing clay as part of our daily routines. Reading and writing were much more important unfortunately for me.
The first item I remember making at nursery school was a coaster with stamps imprints for a Father's Day present. I tried to make many items from our clay in the garden from that day onwards to find that our earth was perfect to grow veggies, but not so great for making vases, nor mugs.
In my thirties, I told my best friend Chris Eagling (who I am married to now) that if I could go to a ceramic cafe, illustrate on ceramics and get an amazing result out of it, I would get geared up. We have never stopped buying gear since and we now help many people to either start their own ceramic businesses or just enjoy making beautiful items out of clay. We do not know what having a weekend off means, we are happy that way. We live our passion and feel blessed to have so many amazing people around us who share the same enthusiasm.
If you wish to give pottery a go, get a voucher for someone special or a personalised piece of ceramic, please feel free to contact us.
If you have a birthday party and you would like ceramic to be a fun experience for your guests (for both children and adults), we will be happy to fit something in for you!
Part of our services covers how to throw, how to create projects with slab building techniques, how to decorate bisque with achieving beautiful results, and much more.
And finally, if you want to have lessons as part of a group or one-to-one, please contact us!
Our workshop is in Wicken, near Ely, between Soham and Stretham. We run activities from Wicken and we are now working on setting up pottery rooms all over Cambrigeshire. Stay tuned!
