I am not running classes in August, back in September in a bigger space with many more classes!

Introduction / finding my studio / deliveries.

Fiona riverside at TSSThank you so much for having a look at my work. My hand built stoneware homewares are inspired by London living, celebrating our historic locale & of course sharing food with friends & family. My studio is right alongside the river, over looking an industrial landscape.

I like to let the making show itself in the finished product using a fairly limited palette, and I often customise / work to specific commission. I work in stoneware, often with inlays, incised drawings, stamps & mono-print & sometimes overlaid with decals from my drawings. I often use abrasion with my mark making, I like my items to suggest a history of favoured use.

I run small classes in my studio and outside locations, firing and glazing and returning work to happy children & adults. 

I work flexibly, I can discuss bringing classes to your home, to your work organisation, to your group. I have taught under fives, SEN students, children, teens, adults, over 80's, GCSE students and at university level. I've taught community groups, privately and in schools. I run sessions which animate museum & archive collections, create community and support well-being outcomes. I also teach small business skills / building cost & profit sessions. 

Thank you for looking at my work. I don't make much of anything at once, if you like it, or would like to discuss classes or commissions, give me plenty of making time.

Finding my studio for classes or appointments:
There are hundreds of studios at Thames-side, SE185NR but mine is easier than many to find! Come through the main barrier and turn left immediately. There is an atrium filled with tropical plants, walk through there to the interior of that building and I am first on the left after the second set of [locked] doors. My telephone number is on the outside of the Atrium if you need me to come and unlock the doors for you [visits by arrangement please] .Google maps, Thamesside Studios

Deliveries & packing:

my orders are sent out promptly and by second class delivery.
Let me know if you'd like me to quote on an urgent first class. Packaging is recycled where possible and when I buy is paper and eco-beans [foam made from starch not plastic compound], I double box where necessary so that work arrives safely.

Collections can be made from me without the p&p cost, [I am in the SE7 area of London]. Just use the code LOCAL and pop me an email to arrange.

Thanks for your order, I appreciate your support
