Collection: 1:1 Ceramic Mentorships

Private Ceramic Handbuilding Coaching

Since discovering my passion for handbuilt ceramics in 2018, I have been through all the phases of learning and teething problems and come out the other side with a huge knowledge and passion for the craft.

I have taught 100's of students over the years in group settings and am now offering my expertise in a bespoke manner.

I believe the lessons I have learned will be of huge benefit for mid-advanced beginners to advanced-intermediate potters who want to raise the bar of their work or need a little extra support to reach the next level.
