=======

The company was founded in 1984 mainly as studio pottery enterprise, producing a range of decorative and kitchen ware. In partnership with local art groups, training in pottery & sculpture and other hand modelling techniques began. This led to out-reach work at various community centres, libraries and museums. An education program for schools was developed as the company grew.

 

For about twenty years, operations focused on three main fronts: 1. Production of wares for public sale. 2. Community projects (in-house training & out-reach workshops).  3. Educational workshops in schools.

 

This involved the operation of a fully equipped studio both for professional production and comprehensive vocational training in basic studio and semi-industrial pottery making. Artists combined practising their crafts with teaching and doing administrative work.

 

Major organisational changes in took place in 2004 when the company relocated to a new studio. After operating for three more years, the Heritage Ceramics Studio was closed down in the UK, relocating that branch of the enterprise in Nigeria (West Africa), where a new studio has been developed for pottery production.

 

In September 2007, our operations in the UK were streamlined to focus on outreach work mainly in schools and the general community. The team of artists combine pursuing other interests with the planning and delivery of projects in our schools’ and community program.
