Edinburgh Design School to launch ‘Clay School’ for children


Edinburgh Design School is an SQA approved ceramics teaching centre. It was founded in 2012 with a mission to reintroduce pottery education back into the mainstream after a period of steady decline in Scotland. 


Through its work with Craft Scotland, the school aims to facilitate teacher training (CPD) in Scottish schools. All EDS teachers are well-qualified, experienced ceramicists and educators with their own industry profiles. 


Art provides an outlet for a child’s creativity. It enables self-expression, which is fundamental for mental wellbeing. 


Other transferable skills are also honed and developed: the ability to concentrate, to live in the moment (mindfulness), spatial awareness, observational and critical skills. Ceramics involves a good deal of Physics and Geometry. Students develop sketchbook prototypes before making anything.


I intend to open a weekend clay school for young potters in 2021. We are currently fully booked in the evenings, but there is scope for classes during the daytime.
