Classes & teaching, private & schools

Private classes & schools / 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. 

School: In 2021 I am teaching class9 Steiner students, this is on-line via Google Classroom / Meet during lockdown preparing research & resource for self guided clay projects that link to other curriculum study. These projects will be completed when we are back in school with studio materials, equipment and tools. Includes a full scheme of work plan, and individual as well as group pathways that build on basic skills learned last term.

Private classes: will resume in my studio or the Thamesside education space as soon as it is possible. Zoom classes with clay by post or local drop off available in the meantime. 

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.

‘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.’
