one two five art school

art classes and workshops for all ages and abilities


One two five courses specialize in ceramics and textile arts. The Studios are adjacent to our home and gallery. The classes are small providing students with high quality teaching and close attention.

Gary offers short courses in pottery, taster workshops and one to one tuition for people of all ages and abilities including special needs. Each session lasts two hours. Share Gary's own palette of beautiful glazes and take home a collection of your own fired creations. Or enrol for a taster workshop and be inspired to do more!

Carole teaches painting and print for textiles and other surfaces. You can learn to paint with dyes and pigments on silks and cottons and to screen print and transfer print on other materials. No previous experience is needed; just an enjoyment of colour and cloth. There are evening classes, taster days, weekend workshops and short courses. She also teaches BA Mixed Media Textiles at Bath Spa University, and short courses, and on the MA Textiles and Tapestry Arts Course at West Dean College.

"Gary and Carole's work displayed at their studio and home 'One Two Five', presents such a feast for the eyes that it is difficult to politely maintain eye contact with them when arriving there for Gary's ceramics classes. The workshops are equally as distracting but after Gary demonstrates various techniques of making, decorating and glazing with a large block of clay it isn't long before one is absorbed and producing some satisfying pieces of pottery thanks to his excellent tuition. The relaxed atmosphere induces a great sense of well-being and the knowledge that any experimentation will be acceptable, with technical advice available from Gary for any unforeseen difficulties, adds to the enjoyment of two hours that passes far too quickly. I must admit to feeling like a child at Christmas when ones creations appear from the kiln offering their own surprises. Gary is on hand once more with encouragement, suggestions and support as to how one may proceed to display or move the pieces on incorporating ones own style in future. Just great, love it when Wednesday evening comes around each week. Thank you Gary."
