Cyan Clayworks is a Community Interest Company and working ceramic studio, established in 2012 by artists Fiona Thompson and Chris Donnelly. Professional workspace is provided, as well as facility hire, support for artists, designers and students and CPD for art teachers. We run regular ceramic courses and workshops throughout the year for adults. This includes wheel throwing, monoprinting, and handbuilding. We both enjoy utilising our knowledge to teach and inspire others to learn about clay. Small class sizes and lots of hand on support in a real working studio. We also run bespoke workshops for small groups of adults.

Many of our course for January to March are fully booked. T he following courses have places; early booking is recommended:


Daytime course in ceramics (4 weeks)

This four week course will be held on Thursday mornings from 10.30am – 1pm. It will include an introduction to making pots by hand, wheel throwing and surface decoration. Suitable for complete beginners, or those with a little prior experience who would like to focus more on their own projects. Like all our courses, class sizes are small so that everyone gets enough individual support and advice. We will go through different practical demonstrations each week, and then you will be able to work on projects of your own design. All tools and materials provided.

£95 per person, inclusive of materials,preparation and firings.

Evening course in ceramics (intermediate)

This six week evening course will be held every Tues evening from 6 until 8.30, from 24th May until 28th June. It will cover various different approaches to working creatively with clay, and is suitable for those with a little prior experience of clay who would like to develop and refine their skills further. It will include wheel throwing, handbuilding, surface decoration and simple printing, and glazing. There will be a different practical demonstration each week for the first few weeks, and the chance to either try different processes or focus on one area. If you have attended quite a few courses previously, you are welcome to focus on your own projects and have help and support where needed. The course will be run by Fiona, and held in our working studio where you will be able to see our own work in progress. An itinerary will be sent out prior to the course, with directions to the studio and any other relevant details.

Cost per person is £148, which is inclusive of materials and firings.
