CLAYWORKS

The clayworks and pottery studio at Tidal Art Centre is a bright open space with inspiring natural light, kilns, potters wheels, plenty of table space and storage for work in progress, a glazing area and a cozy area to chat and learn about the latest techniques. Warm and inviting on those cool fall and winter days. Come work in the studio and get your hands seriously dirty.

The kiln shed is separate from the main building and houses Jackie Frioud's beautiful salt kiln. Spend some time out here in 'the shed' and enjoy a wonderful rustic ambience.
