James’ Courses

“Its James here.

In May 2024, I am curating Inspired by Knepp – a big group exhibition at the Knepp Rewilding Project in West Sussex.

This is taking up a lot of my time so I will not be teaching at the Phoenix Studio for a while. I will run Phoenix-based courses (like the ones below) soon – so make sure you have signed up to the mailing list to be one of the first to know when they will be.

In 2024 I am teaching at La Meridiana International School of Ceramics in Tuscany in June. I am due to be teaching at the Living Light Art in Hong Kong in October and in November, I am teaching at both the Ceramics Studio near Tunbridge Wells and Ceramic Stories in Belgium. Come join me!”

Click on the poster or the following link to be taken to the ‘Inspired by Knepp‘ homepage and do come and see the show in May.

We are also running a 1-day workshop, demo and performance program from Knepp too – many being led by familiar Phoenix faces. They are not to be missed!
