Describe your approach to teaching:
Group discussion and exploration of the subject is combined with tutor demonstrations, followed by individual projects to develop confidence in using new techniques.
What inspires your own work?
My hand-built earthenware ceramics reflect a connection with my locality and to the fragile and constantly changing environment, responding to places as diverse as wild bleak moorland and bird filled hedgerows.
