Jon ‘the potter’ Williams and Sarah Monk have a combined experience of over 60 years working in the creative industries. Their artwork has been exhibited widely in the UK and abroad and is represented in several important collections.
Clay is a fantastic, versatile material for expressing ideas in three dimensions. Students develop their own ideas and creativity and grow as individuals.
Students develop an understanding of aesthetics and visual terms when they work with clay. The language of three-dimensional design, texture and surface pattern is an inextricable element of the tuition. Teaching staff often comment on students using their new-found, creative vocabulary in other subjects.
Workshops often include working on the potter’s wheel. This is usually a first-time experience for students and a great opportunity to learn a new skill.
