Visit Carys Martin Ceramics and immerse yourself in clay and creativity at her Open Studio Event. Explore the fully equipped studio where Carys creates and teaches her love of clay through classes and workshops. Browse her hand made pieces in the beautiful shop section and treat yourself to something made with love for your home. Chat with Carys about her projects, finding inspiration and her love of clay as a medium.

Carys will hold live demonstrations on some of her favourite techniques, including: wheel throwing, creative hand building, ceramic surface decoration and working with gold lustre. The afternoon will see her host two free mini workshops for ten lucky participants. Each Mini Workshop will run for a half hour, with Workshop A commencing at 2pm and Workshop B commencing at 3pm. Participants will be given the chance to hand build a small animal or try their hand at surface decoration on a tile, which can be made into an incense holder or hanging. To go into the draw for a workshop spot sign up at the bottom of this page.

FREE MINI WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS HAVE BEEN DRAWN AND THE WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FULL. If you entered please check your email! Selected participants will be notified one week prior. Should you not be able to attend, please let Carys know so another may take your spot.

The studio will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 10am – 4pm, and all visitors are welcome any time. There will also be a lucky door prize and some other little surprises on the day.
