RAW Artworks

RAW Artworks, Community and school projects

Since setting up her studio in Wiveliscombe, Somerset, Jo has been continuing her exploration of clay as well as setting up projects in Primary schools and communities across Somerset. She works on these projects with business partner and artist, Sara Fairfax. Together they have set up RAW Art Works, “We work in clay, collaborating with others to design projects that best suit people’s aims and objectives and their budgets. We produce high quality indoor and outdoor handmade mosaics in an educational or public art context as well as holding workshops for adults and children wishing to explore their creative and expressive potential through clay.”
