Claude Frere-Smith

← Back to Tutors

Claude had been making pots for 40 years, training in East Anglia before setting up his first studio in North Wales, producing stoneware pots. After being undertaking an advanced training award from the Arts Council and working with David Lloyd Jones and David Leach, he moved to North Yorks. He had exhibited widely in the UK and Europe. Claude enjoys making useful pots and exploring their sculptural qualities in his more individual pieces.

Claude brings along 4 small Shimpo wheels for use on the workshop. He can be seen at shows and exhibitions thorughout the region demonstrating and letting people have a go.  If you’ve seen the queues, you know he makes it child’s-play!
