I have lived and worked in Whitstable since coming here as a student in the 1970s – I fell in love with it instantly.

My interest in ceramics grew from a chance job as a Girl Friday at Tabor Pottery in Canterbury with Les Brown, a job which turned into a four year apprenticeship.

From the moment I first learned to use the wheel I was hooked, and over 30 years later, still love to throw pots.

The outlet for my work is ‘Seagulls and Flamingos’ (Address: 12 Harbour St, Whitstable CT5 1AQ). Our shop opened in Whitstable in 1985 as an outlet for locally made ceramics, furniture, glass, and clothes. Nowadays it has expanded to include a wide range of non-local and fair trade goods.

 The studio is open for individual lessons on the wheel, and some small classes for existing students during July and August. We hope to be offering the usual range of classes, Taster days and Throwing Days from September. We are observing Social Distancing and have increased hygiene protocol in line with government guidelines.
