Studio progressing

A busy week so far...
New studio is almost finished...our own work benches still to build and a few other bits and pieces. But the teaching space is up and running. Its a pretty big space to get set up, however despite moving from a very small space we have managed to expand into this one and fill it up quite easily.This week we have had product design students working on a project with Chris and myself to create moulds and cast pieces. Lots of test pieces are also ready for firing - its been great to get my hands on some clay for a change! 
There have been other people moving in to Beaverhall recently...the word is spreading about the great spaces on offer. A couple of us have set up a facebook page so we can collectively promote our projects/workshops etc.
There are also vouchers available for people to buy for tuition and short courses. Please email for info.

There will be six of my pieces based on a trip to Alberta, investigating taxidermy collections there.

Cyan Clayworks

Finally everything has been moved from the old studio and into the new one. Everything clay-related seems to be very heavy...Now it just needs to be unpacked and organised! More workbenches to be built and other things to buy. It's been great to start with a blank canvas...

Details of the forthcoming classes are on the website, or give me an email for info; The studio email is misbehaving at the moment...should get that sorted out soon. 

Will be running some taster sessions in July and August. Always wanted to have a go with clay? This is an opportunity to try handbuilding and decorating in a short one-off session.
We are also keen to work with other artists/designers/students on their projects; there is facility hire and or technical support. 

We'll be having an open event at some point, once things are set up. Lots of other artists and designers are resident in the building, and are still moving in, so hopefully we will hold a shared event! although the new place doesn't have a shop area, you will be able to see and buy work at open events or you can arrange a visit to see the studio.
