Workshops for 2020

COVID 19 UPDATE

Due to the uncertainty around how long we’re going to be locked down, or when the alert level will change we’re leaving the upcoming workshop dates unchanged (except for ‘Taming of the Kiln’ workshop).
Update for Glaze Technology – Introduction
We’re still keen to run this workshop – in the safest manner possible. So we’re restricting the number of enrolments to 6 to allow more room in the studio and will have gloves and masks available. Another prerequisite is that we are at level 2 restrictions that allow gatherings of up to 10 people and travel between regions.
We will take bookings, but won’t ask for confirmation payments until it looks certain that the course can run, we also reserve the right to push back the date if necessary.
 Updated 17 April.

Gallery

Gallery hours: November to February, Thursday to Sunday – 10am to 5pm. March to October, please phone to ensure we’re open.

Our little gallery was built with the idea of having a quiet place, away from the dust and mess of the studio environment. A neutral white space, softly lit that would display our work on a range of surfaces and help bring out the rich subtle qualities of the wood/soda surfaces. It has a range of constantly rotating stock as each kiln load is polished and displayed, then selections made and sent off to various galleries. Please call first on 07 8626974 to ensure we are home if you’re making a specific journey to see our gallery

Who We Are

Potters’ Charade Honey and Duncan Shearer are building their dream pottery that produces functional pots and sculptural work. “We’ve found our own quiet, beautiful piece of land and are building our pottery. We’ve built our wood kiln, little gallery and studio. We both make a range of work and really love the connection we have with our customers when they use our pots. Each piece is unique, hand made, fired in our wood kiln and is influenced by where we live” says Duncan Shearer. We invite you to come and visit whenever you’re passing through.
