June 2020

Hello everyone,

I trust that you are all well and being creative in this period of "still-ness" After much consideration, on many different levels I have decided to re-start my ceramic classes at the beginning of July.

I feel that this should give most people time to get comfortable with all sorts of aspects of going out again and joining a small group of people doing creative things together.

This is also going to give me a chance to set up as 2nd “studio” space for clay making and tuition at my gallery, on Jan Smuts Avenue, in Parkwood. This new space will actually be inside the existing gallery, as my plans to build at the back of my gallery property, have also been temporarily thwarted due to the council being closed for these months.

It seems at times all quite complicated, but it has so many other positive aspects to this unfolding situation, which are also quite exciting as this is a whole new chapter for me in my life, and I’m looking at new ways of doing wonderful creative activities in my space , with a slightly different slant going forward.

I have lots of stoneware clay at my home for collection, if anyone has run out or doesn’t feel that they want to wait another whole month to start classes again.

I will be happy to answer any questions or assist anyone who has any questions with regard to working with clay. You just need to email me: or what’s app me on +27833777499. I am planning an 8 week Saturday beginners’ course in hand-work, at the gallery – starting in the first week of July. If you happen to know anyone who is interested, please spread the word. Registrations for this have already opened and there are limited places. There will be hand sanitizers and enough room for social-spacing.

Looking forward to seeing you all – in the near future. Stay safe, Stay warm and be kind to yourselves.


Gallery Opening Hours

The opening hours of the gallery, from the 1st of June to the 15th will be Wednesdays from 11am to 3pm and Saturdays from 11am to 3pm. I am in the gallery often during the week, so if you do want to pop in spontaneously, either phone the gallery on (011) 447 5804 or what’s app me on 083 3777499 to make sure if I am there. I am also so very happy to open the gallery most of the time by appointment if you give me an hour or so warning.

Many thanks for your patience.
