About your teacher: Josh’s earliest interest in ceramics came from a short workshop where participants manipulated a small ball of clay through the platonic solids. This led to further exploration over years through short courses, TAFE and University studies in ceramics to eventually running his own home studio and facilitating adult and children’s short courses. Josh is passionate about throwing and altering forms to create musical instruments from clay but also enjoys making functional kitchen ware inspired by his travels overseas.
