A ceramics studio

The Wonki Pot is a ceramics studio at The Yard, Waterworks Road Hastings TN34 1RT run by me Holly Dawes. The space is primarily my studio where I create sculptural ceramics using locally foraged clay. It is my working space which means it is often chaotic and messy but also a space of tranquillity and creative energy. I would love to invite you into this space to explore with me, to experiment, try new things and play without pressure.

I teach one day workshops, weekly courses, drop-in sessions, saggar firing, using natural materials and soon to come, clay foraging, paper making, pigment making and online courses. Sign up to my mailing list to be the first to hear about new stuff.
