COURSES

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Following Government guidance for establishments like ours, We shall be running Courses from 5th June!!

We will run a number of our more covid-safe-classes from then and gradually build back up to our pre-pandemic schedule. We have bought a larger marquee and will, again, be running each course from two workspaces to ensure our students are both safely distanced and comfortable. A more detailed outline of our covid-19 strategy can be found here.

We’re rising from the ashes and looking forward to welcoming you back!

Team Phoenix x

We are honoured to have a number of talented artists come to teach at our studio! There are lots of options if you need to stay somewhere locally overnight.

James also works with Creative Communities & Young Artists. You can also buy clay off us and we can fire your work in our kiln, just ask!
