The Pot Heads are hiring! We are looking for a dynamic and organised individual who would like to become part of a small, growing team as the Pot Head population expands!
About Pot Heads Pottery …
Founded by community artist Tasha Bee in 2019, The Pot Heads were born out of her love for sharing creative processes and making art accessible to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. After realising how playful and tactile clay can be as a material, and developing a method of making pots that could be demonstrated step-by-step, she developed the Pot Head workshops and started running them in the community.
She is passionate about encouraging social interaction through creativity and enjoys working with a variety of different groups, from community sessions to private bookings like Birthday’s, Hen Parties and Corporate team-building, to working with charities and marginalised groups. Each and every Pot Head is totally unique, and there have now been over 5,000 Pot Heads created, the community is ever growing…
Our core values are creativity, inclusivity and accessibility, and our mission is to improve wellbeing and strengthen community through creative play. We believe that you don’t have to be ‘an artist’ to make art and enjoy creative process. You can find out more about The Pot Heads on the About page.
