This year Nigel will be offering summer courses for the first time. A unique opportunity to learn and experience the joy of handling clay, working on the potter's  wheel, trying different decorating techniques, and even firing a wood fired kiln.

Over the last six months I have been building a purpose built space to host my summer courses. Student numbers are kept to four per course, each student will have access to a potters wheel and all the facilities of the workshop. Tea ,coffee and a vegetarian lunch is provided each day. Weather permitting the wood fired pizza oven will be lit on the Saturday for all students to enjoy a meal together.
