Hard to believe its been a full year since we moved into Beaverhall Studios, and set up Cyan Clayworks. Since then Beaverhall has filled up rapidly with a mix of lovely creative folk. We will hopefully be having another open studio event at some point this year. The new lease is signed for another year, which is a nice feeling…also a good time to reflect on how things have evolved over the last 12 months.
Although a big commitment and a huge amount of work, it has definitely been worth all the effort. You can’t beat the feeling of being in charge of your own business…! The move to setting up as a not-for-profit organisation seemed to really fit the ethos and approach of things at the studio, and is also beneficial in separating my own practice to some extent.
And finally for anyone interested in an intensive four day ceramics course, we will be running our very first summer school in august.
More plans underway; this will include student placements and the launch of our new collaborative range of work.
