About your Tutor:
Your tutor Selby Dickinson was first introduced to the world of ceramics when he undertook an apprenticeship in a studio pottery on the Wirral. Having learnt all about production and the running of a busy studio pottery, he furthered his passion for ceramics and studied for a degree in Multi Disciplinary Design at Stoke On Trent. Following graduation, he opened his first studio in Cambridge, and during this time began to teach pottery to local community groups, schools and adult education.
Selby's work is all made on the wheel and he works extensively with coloured slips and engobes to produce his colour range. He would describe his work as contemporary, functional ware whilst keeping to the many disciplines that he first learnt as an apprentice. Selby's great passion is passing on his skills and knowledge through teaching.
You can find some of his beautiful work for sale in our gallery at The Makers' Space.
