In July we celebrate one exciting year since the launch of Messums Creative. We are proud in such a short space of time to have grown an artistic community of all ages which came together to create and learn in our nurturing studio.

Welcome to our Summer programme of ceramic courses.

From mid July to mid September we will bring you a variety of courses covering many different aspects of ceramic practice. Our Summer courses will be delivered by our studio experts as well as visiting tutors.



Summer term







RAKU Retreat

30 May – 5 June


Half-Term week at Messums Creative will be dedicated to experiencing and learning about exhilarating RAKU firing.

Japanese in origin, the RAKU firing method dates back to the 16th Century. The word itself loosely translates as ‘spontaneity’ or ‘enjoyment’.  Historically Raku is associated with the creation of palm-sized vessels used during the tea ceremony. Raku is today associated with the joy of unpredictability and the pure hands-on drama of creating with heat and fire.

During our RAKU week you will be supported in your making by our Messums Creative expert team which will be joined by the renowned RAKU potter Andy Mason.
