STUDIO CLOSING – We have some news to share with you. Over the last few weeks we have had to think deeply about the future of our studio during this time.

Every way we looked at it running a studio under Covid-19 conditions, for potentially many months, simply doesn’t add up.

So we will be taking down the stars, packing away our unusual collection of paintbrushes and closing the studio.

We love our little studio and have loved working with every ceramic painter and clay maker who visited. Getting to know young families, running workshops, meeting new borns, special family gatherings, children’s parties, quiet one to one sessions – the list goes on.

But at its core was having you gather around our table and make connections – which we will miss so deeply.

It has been a privilege and a joy.

Thank you so much for being a part of it. 

Dulcie & Barbara
