On arrival which will usually be an afternoon you will be made to feel very welcome, relaxed and ready to have some fun. I will give you a quick tour of the studio and explain how I make, design, decorate, and fire my pots..I will then give a short demo on throwing clay on the wheel and Ta dah!!! away you go, The session lasts approx 2 hours and includes all the Clay and use of tools and wheel plus the firing of one finished piece. At the end of the session you will have made several pots and if you decide to keep more than one pot this can be arranged for a small fee. The session is often done as a couple taking it in turns to throw on the wheel and makes for an enjoyable fun afternoon .
I work out of my quirky onsite pottery studio "Jackie Barber Ceramics" at Brynifor, set in the grounds of our 2 acre Cosy Quiet Welsh Country Cottage also on airbnb. I set up the pottery 7yrs ago after working in a local pottery for many years. I have a B.A.hons degree in Art, Design and Aesthetics I love working with clay and make colourful contemporary tableware. My background in textile design gave me a love of bright colours, mark making, and liking of florals which I use to create my finished pots. I love being able to share and pass on skills that I have learnt having fun with clay
