Claynglaze studio is a rural operation, just outside Pulborough in West Sussex and is nestled in the shadows of the south downs. The studio itself has fabulous views across the fields. The house is circa 1580 and the grounds which are some 3+acres are stunning in keeping with everything you imagine a country cottage should be. Wendy and John love to garden and “grow to eat”, there is a very well stocked allotment, green house and free range eggs from the 10 West Sussex chickens. Organic gardening and healthy eating are all part of a plan to get back to basics and live off the land as well as creating beautiful pottery.
Wendy Yates the artist in resident, has been working with clay for over 30 years. Recently retired from teaching in schools and colleges at various levels has made time to concentrate on her own work and offering technical assistance on others' creative projects.
Whatever your skill level be it beginner novice or advanced, Wendy will be able to help and advise, taking you on a journey of discovery. It's an opportunity to mix with likeminded people and because of the mix of levels in any given group you will also learn from each other. The studio is well equipped and there are different clays to choose from as well as 2 active kilns ensuring your work is fired as soon as it can be.
