Maker's bio

Geraldine Francis is a ceramacist who runs tutored classes at Parnella House an 18th Century House, run by White Horse Arts in the historic market town of Devizes. She has many years of experience in teaching ceramics and works from the studio as well as in the community, bringing the opportunity to work in clay to many people. From those in care homes to children's nurseries, Geraldine delivers ceramics and pottery sessions to suit all ages and abilities. She offers tuition in all aspects of working in clay including sculpture and throwing on the wheel. Geraldine is from a fine art ceramics background and her own work is on display in the studio and includes thrown work as well as sculpture and tiles. If the studio venue is not suitable to your needs as you are a large group or have members of your group who require access for wheelchairs etc, Geraldine is happy to arrange an alternative venue.

Bec Q reviewed: "Find Your Inner Potter" ceramics and pottery day with Geraldine Francis

"I had a great day with Geraldine in her studio - she has a friendly, relaxed approach and is happy to share her experience & knowledge of all things clay, practical & technical. I wanted to learn some new techniques that I could bring into the classroom and this course was perfect. I came away, having made four different items, with lots of ideas and a renewed confidence and enthusiasm for clay! "

Jannine reviewed: Introduction to throwing on the potter's wheel

"A wonderful few hours spent having a go at throwing pots. Geri was an excellent tutor and explained everything very clearly. She took the time to help and guide us and we managed to actually make pots that we were happy with. I would definitely recommend this course."

Geraldine Francis Ceramics responded:

"Thank you I am so pleased you enjoyed your session and I will be in touch shortly for you to collect the finished pieces. Geri"
