Isobel Morris has been running sculpture and pottery classes at St Paul’s Learning and Family Centre for nearly a decade. Hundreds of learners have attended over the years, all have gained confidence and skills. Many have gone on to further study, employment or other creative pursuits.

Here are some of this year’s success stories:

Aaron Le-Bas came to Isobel’s classes in 2014/2015 and starts a BA (Hons) course in Ceramic Design at Central St Martins in September. Unique nationally, this course provides a design-led creative experience of ceramics within a broad subject context and brings an ethos of responsible design to the study of markets and manufacture.

Yurim Gough came to classes a few years ago and has now developed her own style of ceramic art and was one of the featured artists at this year’s inaugural The Other Art Show at The Arnolfini in June.
