After the huge success of a TV series featuring contestants who create various objects of pottery and ceramics, the owner of a Bridlington art studio has seen an upsurge in enquiries.
Jenny Morten, who owns the Morten Gallery is a potter, ceramicist and artist, and has held classes at her premises on the High Street in the Old Town for years.
But she has recently seen a big rise in popularity of people wanting to learn the art of pottery.
“Following the success of the Channel 4 programme -The Great Pottery Throw Down – there has been a surge in interest from people wanting to take part in this wonderful activity.” explained Jenny.
Jenny has expanded her studio space to include a glazing and decorating room – which is separate from the clay studio.
“Beginners are welcome so don’t be shy – you will not make a fool of yourself – everyone has to start somewhere.”
Classes will commence from May 1st, and Jenny has adapted working practices including wearing of masks, social distancing, good ventilation and sanitising stations available.
