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.
