It’s the last day of term – Hurrah!
Jon usually works with two or three schools a week, particularly in the Summer term when exams are out the way and arts weeks are common place. Obviously things were a little bit different this year but Jon still managed to visit one school a week, mainly to complete projects that had been arranged pre-pandemic.
This magnificent tile panel will be mounted outside the reception area at Grangefield Primary School in Bishops Cleeve, welcoming visitors to the school forever more.
Head teacher Karen commissioned Jon to work with every child in the school to produce a collaborative, wall mounted artwork to celebrate the school’s 20th anniversary. The owl is both school emblem and logo and made for a really strong graphic. If you get close up you’ll see the piece has been assembled from individual feathers – each one made by a different pupil.
Emma & Matt’s wine kit! #winewednesday
A beautiful decanter & goblets made on our Potter’s Wheel Weekend Course.
Matt made the amazing ‘splatter’ jug and Emma was responsible for the beautiful terracotta goblets – Teamwork makes the dream work!
Emma and Matt are regulars on our weekend events and in a very short space of time have acquired some mighty fine pottery skills. Well done you two!
Amazing work produced by a mother and daughter combo who attended our two day potter’s wheel course in May 2021.
Day one is spent making lots and lots and lots of pots on the wheel – you’ll be amazed at how productive you can be once you’ve got the hang of things! The pots are left to go leather hard overnight so they are primed and ready to work on the next day.
Day two is all about trimming, turning, assembling and adding colour! Phew! We love the splatter technique – used to great effect here by Elizabeth. Jean decided to combine all of her thrown pots into a magnificent structure – brilliant! Well done ladies
Our weekend and two day courses take place once or twice a month and cost £280 per person.
We love our Pottery Garden, particularly when the Peonies have bloomed! Such a bountiful haven for mini beasts and wildlife.
