We are open now largely by appointment but hope to be open (roughly)
Thursday to Saturday 11am to 6pm :
The Happy Crab Gallery, 20A Gloucester street, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 7AW.
Ample parking and level access. Please phone first if making a special journey!
I can take payments via Sumup at my studio or via PayPal online.
Myself and potter Lea Phillips share the studio and gallery area at the Happy Crab Gallery. However, I have yet to find somewhere to live in Weymouth, so opening hours may vary a bit, so please do phone first!
The display area is wheelchair accessible and I have basic BSL stage one sign language skills, tho I am a tad rusty! We have a lot of breakable pots so dogs are best left in your car for fear of waggy tails, (its been known to happen!).
I am available to teach students, in their own studios, pottery or sculpture in a variety of media such as clay, polymer clay and plastoline, including for casting into other media. In depth advice can also be given on clays suitable for sculpture to be fired in a kiln and one to one throwing tuition, as well as help with ceramic problem solving. Classes are generally 2 hours long, £25 per hour, with hours to suit each student, and I am happy to help with each students individual projects, including mould making.
My classes are suitable for students of any skill level who has a passion for wildlife, sculpture or pottery. I only teach one to one throwing in students own studios and if they are local to the Totnes or Weymouth areas. I can manage small groups too if you can provide the space for us all to work in. Individual classes are £25 per hour, group rates available on request.
