Life & Style Weekend - - ESCAPE -

Hid­den be­hind a blue roller door in the in­dus­trial back­streets of Cur­rumbin lies Nor­ton and Nor­ton, a hands-on pot­tery stu­dio spear­headed by the lovely Jo.

In­spired by coastal landscapes, ar­chi­tec­ture and the ocean, Jo Nor­ton of­fers an ar­ray of work­shops and pot­tery pro­grams to suit all lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence.

She in­spires in her stu­dents a pas­sion for pot­tery they never knew they had.

“I am still as ex­cited about clay as I was on that first day,” she said.

“And the fact that my work will be held and used, and will stay in the main places of peo­ple’s lives, is in­spir­ing.”

Jo runs hand-building, pinch pot and wheel-throw­ing work­shops and pro­grams, as well as pri­vate work­shops. But get in quick – the spots fill quickly.
