Our Members

Our members are a bunch of wonderful individuals who are absolutely vital to Cardiff Pottery Workshops. They breathe life into the studio and bring warmth and friendship to our pottery community. Each member is on their own unique journey with clay, some beginning from the very start and some who have been practicing for many years. It is always a pleasure to see each member progressing with their skills, sharing ideas and supporting one another. Scroll down to see who is part of our community of potters. Interested in finding out more about membership, see our Pottery Membership page.



James is a wonderful part of the Cardiff Pottery Workshop team and has taken to working with clay like a natural!

James will be teaching on one of our 6 week throwing courses in Feb ‘19.
