I think this idea is excellent- any education that inspires all ages to come together to be creative as a collective but also on an individual level is good practice within our community and for our own wellbeing. Ceramics is the stuff of the earth, the alchemy of experimentation and the reward of focussed inner creativity. Hands on play and learning at its best!

Very excited about this idea and project in Herefordshire! I'm interested in the part-time clay lover membership please, to fit in doing creative ceramics while juggling other plates/life. Happy to pay towards 3 month's membership at early bird rate over the next couple of months.

"True imagination is not fanciful daydreaming, it is fire from heaven"; looking forward to some communal fire and clay in Hereford.

Wonder if we could share a month's membership as may not have 12 Hrs a week to spare, what with one thing and another. Looking forward to seeing Cup in operation, sharing skills and learning from others
