Metal clay Masterclasses in the UK, 2019

Updated: Feb 12, 2019



i love attending masterclasses. they are a great way to learn new skills and it's often the little tips and tricks that you learn that help the most. that and spending time with like-minded people! so i decided i would put together a list of the metal clay artists that are travelling to teach in the uk in 2019. i have no doubt missed some so please do add any that you know of in the comments below and i will gladly include them.

just to clarify, for this i have chosen to feature metal clay artists who are travelling from outside of the UK to teach. there are a lot of fantastic teachers already in the uk and you should definitely plan a visit for a class with them (and I expect i'll do a blog post on those soon). Click on the name of the class for the link to the full details and how to book.

also, to be clear, i am not receiving any affiliate payments for sharing these, i just know i'd find it a useful resource and i am sure you will too.


as some artists are visiting more than one studio in the uk i will be sharing this by artist rather than location (and in alphabetical order).
