sculpture and pottery courses
Join the pottery revolution: come and play with clay in an airy North London studio
My friendly pottery and sculpture courses are held on Monday and Thursday mornings (10am-12.30pm) and evenings (8pm-10.30pm), and give pupils of all ages the opportunity to try pottery or sculpture, or a mixture of the two - if it can be made from clay, I will do my best to help you make it.
I have a large selection of clays and glazes, a small throwing wheel (though not in use at the moment due to social distancing measures) and two kilns. Pupils usually have their work fired but I can arrange for special pieces to be cast in bronze if required.
Stone carving classes are held most Saturday mornings (10.30am-1pm) and are always relaxed and friendly.
All courses are held in my bright, spacious purpose-built studio in Whetstone, London N20.
Some success stories
Several of Linda's current and past pottery and sculpture students now regularly exhibit and sell their work. These include Gill Sheldon, who specialises in witty, unusual bronze and ceramic sculptures such as the Latin Dancers above; sculptor Jo Walls whose Snow Leopard is pictured on the right; potter Nadine Blakemore, who now sells her beautiful, functional pieces online and at ceramics fairs under the name Solidago Ceramics (a selection of her dishes can be seen on the right); Dale Kelley, who now runs a gallery in St Kitt's in the Caribbean; and Kavita Favelle, who sells her miniature owls and unusual dishes on Etsy.
