We are delighted to have Geoff Swindell, one of the UK’s most respected studio potters and educators, coming to Nantgarw China Works to give a demonstration of how he throws, turns and assembles his exquisite porcelain teapots, bowls and narrow necked vases. Geoff has a wealth of skills, knowledge and tips and is regarded as a true master of his craft.

Geoff has recently been featured as a demonstrator on the 2020 series of the Great Pottery Throwdown

Tickets £35 per person
Please note there are only twelve spaces for this demonstration. Although tea coffee and cake is provided during the day you may wish to bring your own packed lunch.


Geoff Swindell is one of the leading studio potters working today. Born in Stoke-on-Trent, he left school at 15 and soon ended up following his ancestors and working as a potter. By 1970 he’d achieved an MA at the Royal College of Art. Geoff worked at York School of Art until 1975, when he became a lecturer at Cardiff College of Art (now Cardiff Metropolitan University). In 2003 he left to concentrate ‘full-time’ on his work in porcelain. His work is found in many of the world leading museums and art galleries including the V&A, Metropolitan Museum of Art & National Museum Wales.
