Susan Mulroy Ceramics, Ceramics and clay workshops

Profile

I am an enthusiastic and experienced potter, specialising in environmental community art and with an excellent technical knowledge of making and firing techniques.

I work in woodfired stoneware, My making is inspired by the relentless rhythmic movement of the fire, the curl of the flame around the pots, and the rhythm of firing with wood. Using this inspiration I facilitate workshops in a wide variety of community and educational settings. After working with the Rufford woodfiring society for the last two years, I completed building my own kiln at Blackwell Hall Farm last autumn.

I have a dynamic approach to my workshops which are flexible and responsive to the needs of the students. My teaching and communication skills enable me to motivate a wide range of abilities, experiences and age groups. My workshops are empowering, and allow students to access their hidden creativity and to find expression in their work with clay.
