PROFESSIONAL TUTOR

Sarah John – BA Hons Applied Arts (Ceramics)/PTLLS

Sarah is a practising ceramics and fine artist and has been teaching at Exeter Phoenix for 3 years. Observation of human and natural form (in both 2D and 3D media) has remained central to her interests. Sarah focuses on learning ‘ways to see’, that are key for expressing the world of form around us, and on sharing skills and techniques in an informal atmosphere, which bring out the best creative ideas.
