🌍️
In an effort to make our site more environmentally friendly, we ask that students respect our wishes to reduce the amount of uncollected/ unwanted work at the end of term by carefully considering what is they make using an allowance of up-to 6kg of raw clay per term. Clay is allocated at the discretion of the tutor.

Tutors
Andrew Macdermott is highly skilled potter, an artist who combines a love of texture and form with real passion about the therapeutic benefits of working with clay; this combined with a background in community development means it is no surprise that Andy's patience and kindness makes him one of the most popular tutors teaching ceramics in and around Milton Keynes.
