What you'll do

While your fingers are getting familiar with clay, I will give a short description on the origins of clay and the techniques we will use. Depending on the flavour of the day, you will create an item in clay and use slips, scrafitto or paper resist using a wet on wet decorating technique.

The creative process is guided...so no previous experience needed!

Next comes alchemy...
The completed wet work has to spend a few weeks with me to dry completely upon which it can be fired to 1000 degrees in my kiln. Then it is glazed with a transparent glaze medium and refired at 1160 degrees to finish. The end product, your artwork will then be waterproof and durable.

At this stage, I will photograph and message you so we can arrange collection/delivery.

Workshops can be designed for groups or tailormade to suit your function.

I have been working as an artist and teaching for 25 years, the last 17 in the beautiful village of Paternoster. I am a professional ceramic sculptor and qualified teacher. Creating in clay is a wonderful activity and anyone can do it!
Sharing my skills and facillitating this experience is a great way to host visitors to Paternoster.

Where you'll be

Stone Fish Studio and Gallery is located in an old historic building. Built in 1863, it is one of the oldest buildings in the village. The walls are of dry stone construction. In those days, it served as a barn and wheat store, while the Paternoster Hotel was the farmhouse.
