From an early age, growing up in a beachside house on the Isle of Wight, Becci was always playing with sand, so it made perfect sense that she followed her passion of using natural materials to using clay.
After completing a two year ceramics apprenticeship in a working pottery on the Isle of Wight, Becci made her way to London to study for a BA Hons at Camberwell School of Arts.
Fast forward a few years... after setting up a studio in Charlton Mackrell, moving in to Clarks Village for thirteen years as The Village Pottery, then teaching ceramics at Millfield School, Becci is now back in her original studio where it all began.
Becci loves sharing her skills and years of knowledge and is passionate about wellbeing as she knows how important it is to take time out for yourself. This is why she has chosen to open up her studio again to like-minded people to come and have a go.
If you wish to come and try something new, then we have taster sessions where you can try throwing a pot on the wheel or making a slab vase. We also provide longer half day sessions or full day sessions with a delicious lunch thrown in. These are perfect for a party of hens, teenagers, time out with friends or just a couple wanting a unique experience. If you wish to develop your skills still further, then enjoy a longer, five-week course where you can learn about the whole pottery process from start to finish. Please telephone for further details and available dates.
We look forward to welcoming you at Southfields School of Pottery.
