Wheel Class with Hilary Jones

Saturdays 1:30 pm - 4:00pm

8 Weeks

Cost - $320


I have worked as a production potter and am familiar with all aspects of making pots on the wheel. I have in addition worked in a production pottery in Devon UK where I was exposed to all aspects of ceramic production, giving me a solid grounding. Returning from UK I was subsequently accepted into the Associate program at the Jam Factory Arts Centre in Adelaide where I worked with the Ceramic Department for two years. During this time my fellow associates and I were responsible for creating teaching programmes for both teenagers and adult classes and the teaching of them.

Upon my return from Adelaide I attained an Advanced Diploma in Art and Design (Ceramics) and have continued to make pots. I regularly exhibit at Kerrie Lowe Gallery and am represented by the Gallery. My work can be viewed on my website as well as any further background additional information.

I have worked in sales for many years and it is this exposure to people of all walks of life that allows me to be confident both in my skills as a ceramic artist and the ability to convey information in a succinct manner.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of on and off-street parking. However, we are located near several schools and when they have events, there can sometimes be difficulty finding a park close by. Please ensure you park legally to avoid a Council parking infringement.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
