Brian Robbins – Ceramics
Brian took Fine Arts at Wakefield College and Ceramics at York College of Art & Technology. He worked for 12 years with well-known Yorkshire potter Sophie Hamilton making and decorating with her her fabulous colourful functional ware at a pottery near Malton, North Yorkshire.
Brian and his partner, a musician, moved to France in 2006 to renovate an old farmhouse and its buildings. Now in its 5th year their home Gageolle receives many summer guests from all over the world.
Classes & Price
Brian’s pottery is installed in one of the barns at Gageolle and he gives informal and easy going pottery classes. The classes are on a one-to-one basis with a minimum of two hours per session at €15 per hour with an additional charge of €10 per Kilo of finished work. Times are flexible daytime or evening on an occasional/weekly or monthly basis.
Guests staying at Gageolle
For guests staying at Gageolle why not include a day in the pottery as part of your holiday. Timing is all important when making pots so Brian recommends a 2 hour morning session followed by another 2 hour session that same afternoon. This way you can make and decorate a pot ready for firing which Brian will do for you, and he will send the finished pot by post.
Please feel free to contact Brian with any questions you may have, or if you would like to come and visit his pottery, take a class or buy some of his work.
