Nelson Clay Week

Drawing from their extensive experience at both St. Ives and Driving Creek Pottery, Callum and Matilda will elevate your consistency and quality in practice to new heights. This workshop will guide participants through a series of exercises designed to streamline the throwing process to its essential movements. These exercises, inspired by Callum's apprenticeship at the Leach Pottery, aim to enhance speed and accuracy, providing techniques that can be honed long after the course concludes.
Please bring your tools with you.
Callum Trudgeon Bio: Callum Trudgeon started pottery in 2014 when he became the first fully trained apprentice at the Leach Pottery in St Ives since it reopened as a charitable trust in 2008. He trained and worked there as a production potter for eight years.

Early in his career, Callum found himself drawn to wood fired pottery. In 2018, he took a one year sabbatical from the Leach specifically to learn about wood firing. He spent three months in Bizen, Japan with potter Kazuya Ishida making British style standard ware using the local materials and firing techniques.

Then he spent seven months at Guldagergaard international ceramic research centre, Denmark, on their Young Wood Fire Artist in Residence programme.

In December 2022, Callum moved to the Coromandel to set up a production pottery at Driving Creek.

Matilda Halley Bio: Matilda started potting whilst living in Japan and later in India. She arrived in Coromandel in 2020 and was taken in by the pottery community there.

She apprenticed for Petra Meyboden where she learned about production techniques and woodfiring with salt and soda.She spent 2023 in St. Ives, training at The Leach Pottery before returning to Driving Creek, where she is currently working with Callum Trudgeon on the production.
