Maker's bio

My passion for pottery started in Cape Town, South Africa where I grew up surrounded by majestic mountains and wild oceans with its diverse scenery of coastlines, the veld, and wildlife. My mother was a potter and my dad an artist so my introduction to colours, shape and textures started at an early age, followed by a degree in art and then an MA in Ceramics. Now I live in the beautiful Surrey hills so am further inspired by the green rolling hills (Box Hill) and woods on my doorstep with bluebells and luminous rape seed fields in spring and many ferns to collect to imprint into clay. I love every process of pottery, whether its handbuilding or throwing on the wheel and enjoy sharing my knowledge I've built up over the past 30 + years with my students.

Emanuela reviewed: Half-day pottery with Marina

"Cannot praise Marina enough. This course went beyond my expectations. The day absolutely flew away. We had so much fun and learned so much from Marina. Her knowledge is outstanding, she made us feel so comfortable in her house and so I am so glad we attended this course. Cannot wait to go back to her potting shed!"

D west reviewed: Pottery and decorating day for two

"Myself and a friend did the full day course and had a great time on the potters wheel . We made three pots and then in the afternoon you pick your best two, to shape the outside and then decorate. Marina was very patient and explained each step and we both learnt a lot . "

" Thank you for your review Dawn and Shaem I also look forward to seeing your pots when they’re finished 😊 Marina x"

Bryony reviewed: Half-day pottery with Marina

"Really lovely time with Marina, she allows you to try and test out the fun stuff yourself whilst still being hands on with helping you create something good enough to take home! We did the two hour session and wish we did longer but still managed to create 6 pots and bowls between us for Marina to then glaze later and fire. "
