Geri and Sue have been successfully running their one day clay workshop for over two years, now they have developed this new course for those who would like to develop their skills over a number of weeks. The course is aimed at beginners and will give even the most inexperienced the knowledge and skills to be successful. Geri and Sue believe that everyone can be creative and will sensitively guide students through the making processes.
