Stoneware Ceramics Workshop (2023)
(Private Dates Available)
Daisy Cooper’s hand built ceramic wares are reminiscent of times gone by - of a slower life where afternoons were spent meandering along the riverbank, gazing up at the native greenery, or of nights spent staring at the sparkly dust of the milky way. After all, this is where Daisy gathers her inspiration for her much sought after range of hand made ceramics - growing up in rural Scotland, has kindly delivered such vivid memories, evident in her ‘river like’ glazes and speckly white plates seen the world over (Jamie Oliver has used Daisy’s work in his Food Revolution series - yes, Jamie Oliver!).
Daisy is a regualr at The Windsor Workshop (and almost every workshop sells out, so don't umm and aah!). You will be treated to a session of slow clay, hand building pieces from scratch. You will be able to choose glazes from Daisy’s range - pieces will be fired and then returned to The Windsor Workshop for collection.
