Ceramics are Charlie’s passion. He took up throwing (think The Great Pottery Throw Down) in 2016 and loved it so much that he has created a pottery studio in the coach house at Woodlands Farm Wales. He can generally be found in the pottery, when not compelled to work elsewhere on the Farm, working on his creations and honing his skills. He is now doing a ceramics diploma at CityLit in London, so expect some more weird and wonderful creations to appear here over the next couple of years….
For Charlie the wheel is his preferred tool, although he loves to slab build too. His ambition is to continue creating pieces which are beautiful in form and decorated with glazes he has created and fired in one of his two kilns (one gas, the other electric). His aim being to create unique pieces that are a joy to own.
Charlie now gives beginner lessons on the wheel to both glamping guests and others. Over two days, he teaches how to throw cylinders and bowls on day one and on day two you turn, add handles to and decorate your creations. Charlie will then fire and glaze your pieces and post them to you. There are four wheels and so Charlie can accommodate couples or small groups wanting to learn together. Do ask for details.
Charlie has started to sell his work and intends to sell more. His ceramics are currently available for use by our guests in The Stripy Bothy and Barn and in The Enclosure at Woodlands Farm.
