About Pottery Summer School with Karen Hanvidge

NOTE: THIS IS A SERIES OF WORKSHOPS WHERE PARTICIPANTS MAY BOOK FOR MULTIPLE CLASSES TO MAKE ARTWORK AND OBJECTS OVER A LONGER PERIOD.

Since her first introduction to clay as a child growing up in California, Karen Hanvidge has been completely seduced by the pliability of this medium. Karen studied Ceramics Design at Glasgow School of Art in 2011. Now living and working from her studio in Renfrewshire, Karen continues to explore new ideas and her local town of Paisley, and its heritage paisley pattern have been an immense inspiration in her designs and making. Karen’s designs are both decorative as well as functional. She slab-builds her ceramics, finding this method more receptive to her methods and techniques of surface decoration. Most of her designs are made taking many hours of work to design, make and complete and are a true labour of love.
