Meet Lisa, a Graphic Designer with a passion for ceramics

Lisa Birchall Headshot with creative background

Lisa Birchall Leedham embarked on her ceramics journey at our Winsford campus following an enthralling experience with throwing clay during an evening class. Enrolling onto our Level 1 course, Lisa's thirst for knowledge in ceramics propelled her to progress to our Level 3 Ceramics course, where she continues to flourish.

Lisa, who is a passionate graphic designer by profession, enjoys ceramics as a creative escape from her digital work. What began as a fleeting interest has blossomed into a fervent hobby, igniting Lisa's passion for the craft.

Throughout her journey, Lisa credits her tutor, Huw, for his invaluable expertise and adeptness in imparting knowledge. She commends the amazing environment at Winsford for fostering her interest in ceramics, saying: "Winsford campus is the perfect space to practice ceramics. That and the amazing friends I have made on the course is the reason why I enjoy coming to the sessions each week".

Lisa's creative journey in ceramics is marked by notable achievements, including the creation of a teapot and mastering the art of throwing larger pieces, accomplishments that fill her with pride. Moreover, Lisa and her peers had the privilege of showcasing their works at an exhibition hosted at Arley Hall, an experience she describes as intense yet profoundly rewarding.

In the future, Lisa envisions ceramics as a lifelong pursuit, vowing to continue honing her skills and nurturing her passion. Her aspirations include establishing herself in a dedicated studio post-completion of her course, a testament to her unwavering commitment to the craft.

Best of luck for the future, Lisa! We have no doubt your creative ability will take you far.
