Try pottery for the first time or take your practise to the next level with one-on-one (or two if you bring a friend) workshops and masterclasses that are tailored to your needs.


Although we are working with clay and tools, I strongly believe that the most important medium we work with is our body. A lot of my tips and guidance will focus on body-awareness. Believe it or not, even the toes of your left foot play a role in determining the result of a pot! Hips, core, shoulders, triceps; understanding and focussing on how your body works together with the laws of physics of a moving wheel, will make your life so much easier!

These workshops focus mainly on technique, shape, and contemporary design in ceramics. For more in-depth decorating and glazing courses, and for more traditional shapes, colours, or sculptural work, I can point you into the direction of some skilled artists and community studio’s in Vancouver, BC.


Online booking is currently not available. Please send an email to and we'll find a timeslot that suits us both.

Before the start of your workshop you'll receive an invoice that must be paid in full (via etransfer) before the start of the workshop.

When choosing the 3-day workshop “THE PROCESS”:

Be mindful that the trimming session will be on the second day after your throwing session. Ie: throwing on Monday, means trimming on Wednesday. The glazing session is determined after your trimming session to suit your schedule and my firing schedule.


Clay and tools are available for use in the studio and free of charge.

If you are doing the MASTERCLASS "PLATES", please bring your own bat if you want to keep your plate(s).

Bring a towel and wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, or an apron. And a little reminder; short fingernails, long hair that’s tied up, and removing your jewelry, makes throwing so much easier!


The workshops take place in my East Vancouver studio. There is ample parking in the alley near the back entrance. I will provide you with more details after your workshop is confirmed.


It is always possible to adjust your workshop date, as long as you give 48-hour notice. If you cancel after the 48-hour window, your full workshop fee will be charged. Workshops can only be rescheduled once.
