Ceramic workshops with Kate are something I always look forward to. She is so knowledgable about her craft that I feel I can ask any question about any aspect of ceramics in general and she will have an answer for me. Kate creates a very relaxed atmosphere in which to work with a great choice of materials to use as well as interesting tools to use for mark making. The main thing, though, that I totally appreciate is that she allows me to explore my ideas and experiment, which as an artist myself is so very important. If I need any help, Kate is always on hand with excellent guidance. The whole experience is thoroughly enjoyable.
A big thank you to Kate for our team building session. We were looking for an creative activity which could cater for all abilities/ages as well as bond us as a team and Kate's session was exactly what we were looking for. The beautiful setting at The Hub to have lunch at beforehand was also very lovely and gave us a chance to relax and catch up before the activity started. I’ve only had good feedback from the team and we are looking forward to receiving our finished pieces!
Thanks, Claire, it was great working with you all and I am glad you enjoyed the Team Building session. It was a lot of fun! The pieces are all ready so I will drop them off soon.
I learnt so much about working with clay, using textures, and engobe paints and even some experimentation with porcelin clay. I am already looking forward to more workshops with Kate who is an inspiring tutor and helps you achieve the results you want whilst encouraging experimentation.
