My background

Carla Pownall

I trained as a production thrower in the 1970s and 80s at Birkenhead Park Potteries in Wirral, making stoneware tableware. After the pottery closed I spent my time bringing up my family and working part-time as a pottery teacher. Now I am making my own stoneware and raku pots.

All the thrown pots can be made to any size.

In my teaching studio there are five wheels and slab building areas. I give 6-8 lesson courses for small groups as well as on a one-to-one basis. In addition, I hold a few weekend "taster" courses throughout the year.

I exhibit at summer Potfests in the north of England and Scotland. My pots are also for sale in several galleries throughout the North West and in Yorkshire as well as in my garden gallery at home in Bidston, Birkenhead.

Please contact me if you would like further details of any of the above.
