I’m an artist/educator based in Margate in Kent and founder of GoCreate.co.uk which runs creative workshops and events.

Play with clay.
Let your hands to the thinking.

During the 3 hour workshop you’ll create your own clay model or small sculpture. We will fire and glaze your final piece in a single colour.

In this 3 hour modelling workshop we’ll introduce basic modelling techniques including tips to ensure your pieces are well joined to increase chances of kiln survival. We will also show you how to prepare your pieces so that they are kiln ready.

You don’t have to be particularly arty – we help everyone find their mark.

This intensive workshop aims to get you started in 3D sculpture. Bring along some ideas or let us inspire you on the day. Ceramic pets, your family in clay, the royals, London buses, souvenir phone boxes…Your idea goes.

On the day we’ll start with a presentation to inspire and teach a range of 3D considerations for kiln firing. You’ll then design your small sculpture or model before construction. We’ll coach in build methods to aid kiln survival and offer guidance as you build your pieces. We’ll then fire and glaze your best 2 pieces in a single colour ready for collection 2-3 weeks later.

This course explores the versatility of clay and contemporary approaches to ceramic sculpture design.  Participants will learn how to create different clay forms using a variety of techniques:figurative and abstract forms will be covered. Also, how to manipulate ceramic surfaces, kiln and glazing basics.

  • an introduction to ceramic sculpture
