Sarah Plackett - Swanspool Ceramics
Swanspool Ceramics was borne out of a desire to provide pottery courses and experiences for all levels in a dedicated studio environment. Having benefitted from access to such an evironment myself while abroad, I am passionate about providing the same opportunity for others here at home, and about making pottery accessible to everyone, from beginners right through to advanced ceramic artists.
Our studios are nestled in the pretty village of Castle Ashby in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside. We run 6-week courses for adults in wheel-throwing and hand-building, 2-hour clay taster sessions, intensive weekend wheel-throwing courses for beginners, team-building workshops and parties for both adults and children.
We also offer a limited number of studio memberships on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis for advanced ceramic artists looking for a studio space to call home.
We offer state-of-the art equipment coupled with a friendly and welcoming environment for anyone with an interest in pottery. So if you've always wanted to get creating with clay, now could be the perfect time to start!
We look forward to seeing you in the studio!
Sarah, company founder and pottery fanatic
