St Ives has been famous for both its art and crafts for many years. Its connection to Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, whose studio you can still visit, is well known, and the legacy of Bernard Leach’s time here is modern studio pottery. St. Ives is full of amazing crafts people and galleries.
Rather than just experiencing the art you can have a go at making your own! Now you can become a ‘St Ives Artist’ yourself by having a pottery wheel throwing session with us. Like all the best studios it is slightly hidden away inside RAAR Emporium in the creative heart of St Ives. St Ives resident Angela Roberts will help any skill level and age to create a pot on the electric wheel.
Angela is a multi-talented crafter and a trained ceramicist. She has been teaching others since she was 18 and loves anything to do with pottery. Now with her own pottery in place she is starting to work on her own creations as well as offering others a wheel throwing experience.
