The Swanspool Ceramics studio is an oasis in which to learn, relax, be creative or simply enjoy some time for yourself in today’s fast-paced world…all accompanied, as British tradition dictates, by tea and biscuits to stimulate those creative juices! Tools, equipment, aprons, glazes and firing are included for all classes, as is clay for all our one-time experiences. For our 6-week courses, an initial clay allowance is included in the course fee: further supplies are available to purchase from the studio. All you need to bring is enthusiasm and a positive attitude!
“Have nothing in your houses which you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” The English designer William Morris – perhaps best-known today for his textile and wallpaper designs – also had an interest in ceramics, and his words here epitomise the Swanspool Ceramics philosophy: creating beautiful yet functional pottery – and inspiring others to explore their inner creativity! The company’s founder, Sarah, is passionate about pottery – and about getting others potting too! Sarah had her first experience of ceramics right here in Northamptonshire, but has since trained in San Francisco, and been inspired by some amazing teachers and studio artists.
We do hope we’ve inspired you to give pottery a go, and look forward to seeing you on one of our sessions or courses soon!
