‘Express Your Creativity & Exercise Meditative Presence’

Craft Therapy is close to my heart as I trained in ceramics 23 years ago and have always since found that wherever I am in my life, creating using my hands, grounds me and brings me back to a place of calm.  Since 2017 I have opened my home studio to students wishing to realise a particular creative project or to learn how to throw on the Potter’s Wheel and use creating with their hands as a therapy.  I used to teach ceramics classes at Clifton High School so I am also proficient in teaching all age groups and I regularly tutor young people with additional learning needs.  One of my tutees is visually impaired so benefits from the tactile nature of clay and the sensory experience that it offers.

Each 1 hour Craft Therapy session is £30 and can be tailored to your specific interest or requirements.  I can help you bring an art project you have dreamt of doing into realisation, giving you free reign to express your creativity within the comfort of professional guidance.  Or, you can come to me completely new to the world of art and explore different mediums to find the technique that best suits you.  I even offer 30 minutes taster sessions on the Potter’s Wheel for £15 if you are interested but want start with something introductory.   I provide aprons and all materials so all you need to do is turn up!  Please see examples of work produced by students in the ‘Read More’ section below.  If you would like to ask further questions before booking please do feel free to email me or look at the frequently asked questions section on this website.

Clients are always surprised how relaxing they find throwing on the Potter’s Wheel.  The natural tactile nature of clay allows people to focus on the present moment, feeling the clay form into shapes in the hands and hence forget about their own mind chatter or the stresses of every day life.

I also enjoy helping people realise particular creative projects that they maybe don’t have the confidence to work on alone.  The project below was completed by Tom (aged 11yrs) who wanted to make a present for his God Mother.  Tom was very ambitious and wanted to make a life like frog lying on it’s back on a pond lily and holding a candle or incense stick!  We managed to design the end product so it had a space for a tea light candle and also hold an incense stick.  I think you’ll agree the final result was very impressive for an 11 year old!
