Located in Williams Mill Creative Art Studios, my studio is private and I have 5 wheels, a slab roller and electric kiln pictured below. I am  taking all safety precautions for COVID-19. The studio is cleaned regularly.  The public will not be aloud in during classes and there will be a maximum of 4 students per class. Masks will be required and distance measures are put in place.

About the instructor...

I obtained my degree from NSCAD University in Halifax. I have over 20 years of experience working with clay and I've developed many different skills and techniques during this time. I've taught at a variety of institutions and studios, including Harbourfront Centre, the Gardiner Museum and Haliburton School of Art. I design my classes to be for beginners, however I am happy to include advanced techniques to those with prior experience working with clay.
