Learn more about John

John

I have been teaching ceramics for 35 years. I have been a specialist at a private school pushing students to attain fine art "A" levels in order to gain entry into the best Universities around the globe. However I want to play myself now and so my husband built me a studio in our field in West Sussex and now I help others to enjoy what I have loved to do my whole life, to play with clay. It is rewarding and therapeutic at the same time. A lot of the community come to enjoy and relax in the studio as do visiting artists, it has become a community hub. Now all can experience my unique offer.

Where you'll be

We are just north of the South Downs and you will experience nothing but rural life, from cosy fires in all the pubs and restaurants to sheep holding up traffic while being moved from field to field. The sea is 20 mins away. On our doorstep in some of the most exciting walking countryside available in Britain. You can always join my husband as he daily yomps the countryside to keep fit. The room is our studio you can see on this site.
