Artist Development Workshop & Coaching

A monthly workshop for ceramicists who want to engage in a supportive development session that will further their artistic practice and help them take the next steps in their work.

The session will be led by artist coach and curator Claudia Kennaugh, who founded Art & People to help artists and collectors navigate the art world with ease. Claudia has nurtured the careers of many artists over the years, curated countless fairs & exhibitions, and helped many collectors to buy art for their homes.

This intimate group of 6 artists will be invited to bring pieces of work for curatorial feedback and peer review. While the workshop will be focused on ceramics, the session is also open to artists of other disciplines.

This is a space to:

~ Talk about your practice
~ Find your focus and hone your visual voice
~ Learn how to market your work
~ Discover selling opportunities
~ Gain advice on how to present your work
~ Connect with fellow artists

Fishponds Pottery residents and members receive complimentary access.

Claudia has nurtured the careers of many artists over the years, curated countless fairs & exhibitions, and helped many collectors to buy art for their homes. Today, Art & People supports the professional development of early-mid career artists with one-to-one coaching, online tutorials and workshops. By partnering with organisations such as Bow Arts Trust, Spike Island, Visual Artists Ireland and Wimbledon Art Studios, Claudia helps to foster thriving artist communities. Claudiaโ€™s curating work continues both in exhibitions and in peopleโ€™s homes. Her keen curatorial eye is eagerly sought after and in 2022 she was on the judging panel of Jacksonโ€™s Painting Prize.
