A group of us headed off to the V&A to seek some inspiration…. the collection is fabulous and

I find something new each time. It was great to share it with others and I really enjoyed

discussion how things were made and having my knowledge tested : ) I highly recommended

Caro Halford

Caro Halford has been with us for two weeks http://www.carohalford.com/

She has been preparing for her latest exhibition http://badbehaviourexhibition.com/PRESS%20RELEASE

The piece includes a performer who wares a lampshade and moves around the un-fired terracotta lamps that Caro has been madly making.

She manipulates discarded and found objects using performance or audience participation to add new dimensions to them. In this way she asks us to question our received understanding of these objects. Documentation of the intervention itself becomes material for subsequent artworks.

It s been great having her in the studio, her energy knows no bounds! Good luck tonight Caro x

Our Grand Opening Workshops

October 5th & 6th taster sessions in our new studio went so well! Thanks to Frances http://francescandlerdella.blogspot.co.uk/ for helping with the crowds and for bringing the beautiful bunting : )

It was great to have people from my last studio http://www.artinthepark.co.uk/  We took some inspiration from Picasso as the studio accommodates artists and potters it seemed appropriate. We took our time and had  lovely long chilled out sessions.

Thanks everyone for you company and support, it feels great to be back in action ; )

Classes are filling up but there is still chance to come to one off sessions or days to test the water, get in touch – its fun!!
