a project by:
Elaine  Fallon

Hi there my name is Elaine Fallon and I am a potter. In 2012 I set up a tiny studio called Brookwood Pottery in a garage at the end of my garden where i work and produce pottery. We are asking you to join us on an adventure called the Brookwood Pottery Project where we will create an open access teaching pottery for you to experience working with clay.

The Brookwood Pottery Project will be a space for you to relax, learn and explore your ability on the wheel. It will have a large communal making table for handbuilding, 6- 10 wheels so you can learn how to throw, an electric kiln, a very good coffee machine and some good tunes on the radio.

We hope to form a community of makers who love clay and want to learn and improve and are eager to share what we know as professional potters with you. As well as giving classes on fundamental pottery techniques such as throwing and handbuilding we will run specialised workshops with guest makers on specific themes such as glazing, sculptural work, tile making, jewellery making, decorating and brushwork techniques. The studio will still run as a working pottery and students will benefit from seeing how a workshop is run.

I have worked as potter for 20 years, having trained at Thomastown Co Kilkenny with the Design and Craft Council of Ireland and NCAD, Dublin. in 2010 I set up 3 pottery courses in local VECs on Dublin's northside. In 2012 I was commissioned to make a ceramic artwork for our President Michael D Higgins entitled Phoenix Park, November.  I work with artist Marz Lawler who is a skilled decorator and hand builder and Thomastown graduate Karen Cody who has just completed an internship with me. 

We are crowdfunding so that we can kit out the pottery to the best of our ability - we need potters' wheels, an electric kiln, a large pugmill to recycle clay and some money to help furnish the workshop. All of the money raised on this Fundit campaign will go towards this equipment. Our project spend will be divided as follows: 

Electric Kiln Top Loader Nabertherm 60 L 3,200
Pugmill to recycle clay 2 inch 1900
Electric Wheels 1000 each x 7 7000
Electrics and Plumbing and Furnishing 2,800

We would be so grateful for your help bringing this project to life. It will be a space for many, a place to have fun and meet new friends, an opportunity to learn a new skill and get creative, a place where we can work with our heads, hands and heart.
