Classes & teaching, an overview

My teaching, Sept 2021 

I love teaching! I really enjoy helping people learn & develop their skills & make their projects be the very best they can be. I can personalise a tuition session according to what you’d like to make or the group you’d like to gather. You can find classes that I regulkarly sell in the 'products' part of this website or see an overview below [with examples further down] if you'd like to plan something different.

Schools: I have taught both on-line and of course classroom practical one off sessions & termly courses. This includes the use of studio materials and tools, links to other curriculum study, a full scheme of work plan, and individual as well as group pathways that build from basic skills to self guided projects. This teaching has also included sessions on glazing, studio & small business practice

Other: I have taught as part of Festival programming, in gallery space, as a guest lecturer at Middlesex University on preparing a unit cost to create profit, at community based well being Royal Borough Of Greenwich council funded events.

Private classes: These are held regularly in my studio or larger groups in the Thamesside education space. Zoom classes with clay by post or local drop off has worked during lockdowns. I have also taken private classes out to the sheilding, elderly, house bound and worked hard to create this accessability.
 
I have the full enhanced DBS certificate. Also recent certifications [2020 / 2021] in Keeping Children Safe In Education, Safeguarding During Covid-19, Health & Safety Basics, Control of Infections, Fire Safety, Prevent & Channel awareness, Lone Working, Manual Working.

Testimonial: 

‘I booked a four week course for my 12 year old daughter who had left school to be home educated. Fiona gave us a fantastic introduction to ceramics and insight into working in a studio and producing work for sale. I don’t think my daughter had realised that this could be someone’s job! We made some beautiful things, were able to achieve a lot in a short time and were very pleased with the results. Fiona is a great teacher and explained how to make the clay work for you and produce something functional but at the same time very personal and special.’
