Lockdown is eased!
- NEW SERIES: launched 4 July. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the remainder of the second series has been postponed until the autumn 2020. LIVE STREAM guided ‘mindfulness clay workshop’ e-classes into your home.
Some reviews:“Thank you for a great class! Nice mediation & great delivery.” DA“There is something really…organic to taping into your intuition and meditating as a starting point. I often create with a purpose and then I need to make a thing and it was really enjoyable to let go of that…then you go from there and then work with it and develop.” EM
2 hours per session. This will allow for more complex projects and to give more time for shared making, reflection and development which is a very valuable part of making in a group. These sessions can now be booked via the online shop but I am very happy to take bookings by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer.
- Clay at Home – clay projects postal service #clayathome clay parcels are continuing!
My intention for the project was to offer my labour on a voluntary basis during this stressful Covid period for therapy and creativity. It has been amazing to facilitate and wonderful to experience the benefits for everyone who has taken part. The £6 pack price for 1kg of clay with worksheets covers only materials and packing. It is now coming to the time that I need to start earning an income again. I am delighted to continue to offer the packs, though at a price that also includes my work, as of 4 July, £16 for 1kg of clay plus £5.57 postage. There will be some new projects worksheets included in the pack with a selection of 6 paints and a paintbrush with mixing palette too. This is available to buy via the shop and Clay at Home parcels can still be made by BACS in the mean time. Please email email@example.com for my bank details and to let me know the address for clay dispatch.
Clay Coronavirus (COVID-19) – #Stayathome clay parcels and mindful making classes streamed into your home.
- LIVE STREAM guided ‘mindful making through clay’ classes into your home.
What is included: Mindful making through clay workshop, in a Zoom group with an experienced ceramic artist and meditation teacher. 1kg of air dry clay dispatched in advance of the class (please allow 5 working days for delivery prior to the class), plus 40 minutes meditation making through clay. The focus will be on our personal connection with the material rather than technique as the technical outcome is less important than the process in this instance. This process will allow participants to slow down and relax through the process of making in a calm non-judgemental space, providing an opportunity to connect with themselves through the material and to others in the group to share their experience.
When: Each Saturday at 2pm, starting 16 May 2020.
Cost: Free to attend but if you need clay I can dispatch this for £11.47 for clay and postage at cost, plus donations (the session itself is free of charge but open to donations). If you already have clay of your own please feel free to register and work with that during the class, a donation would still be welcome.

Being positive is so important right now. Clay can be so therapeutic. I am based in Barnet in north London but can post nationally.
Clay parcels are ready to roll! Contact me if you would like 1kg parcel of air dry clay with project sheets and online group workshops for £6 plus postage. 2kg for £11 plus postage (larger parcels makes this expensive and difficult). My daily exercise can be the walk to the post box and back, so this can be delivered safely observing social distancing as it’s a quiet road.

MONDAY 23 MARCH 2020. We live in uncertain times and I am not ashamed to admit that I have been swinging between extremes of emotion all day about what the immediate future holds. Looking at my stock of gives me a tremendous sense of calm, knowing that there is always potential for reinvention. CLAY PARCELS are a way through.
“Harmony is not always exact”.
Sarah is a British Ceramic Artist who works with the physical, mindful and repetitive process of making in clay. Her work is to a great extent about ‘being a woman’ and emerges as visceral, highly textured, and vibrantly decorated high fired ceramics.
“There is a preoccupation in my work with the immanence of the feminine and the results, or lessons, of that experience….each piece is a meditation on this emergent experience.”
Sarah works to build national opportunities to exhibit as a woman artist, both in gallery settings and in crossover spaces. As an educator and speaker she produces community projects and clay workshops, inviting participants to enjoy the power of their own creative endeavour.
Her work is also available at specialist ceramics exhibitors and direct from her studio (by appointment please).
