Adult Pottery Classes
Adult pottery classes are suitable for the complete beginner to the experienced artist. Students are given the opportunity to learn a variety of techniques in hand-building, enabling them to produce their own designs to a high standard. Lessons are not structured: students work at their own pace on a project of their own choice, asking for assistance and technical demonstrations when necessary. The small group size means that each student receives as much one to one assistance as required.
“A very pleasant informal class that gives you a good practical introduction into the art of pottery. Thereafter anything is possible!” Jill Shaw, adult potter.
Adult pottery is on Mondays and Tuesday 12.30-3pm and Wednesday 6.30-9pm.Contact Andrea to inquire about places
Artworks runs bespoke school workshops, from large-scale public artworks involving the whole school to individual pieces that students can take home. Each artwork will be uniquely designed to the individual needs of your school from murals to mosaics.
Works completed locally include tile panels at Ightham Primary and Borough Green School. Andrea Farndon also designed and produced the mosaic at St Mary’s Platt C of E and mosaic panels at St Mary’s Platt C of E and West Kingsdown Primary School.Make an enquiry
