And you'll help pay for me to have a studio assistant once a week, giving me the time and space to experiment and create new work.

To put you in the picture, by giving me just $11/ £8.90 a month you will be paying for the electricity to fire an entire kiln of work, a big bag of clay, an hour of of my studio assistant's time or just treating me to coffee and a cake ;-).

About Kara Leigh Ford Ceramics


Hello you,

I'm so glad you're here. If you don't already know me - I'm Kara. I make pots, talk about pots, teach others about pots and share my love of the pottery community....welcome to my little world.

I hand-make all my pottery from my garden studio in Somerset, England. I've been a full-time potter for nearly five years now. It definitely feels like a lifestyle choice rather than a job and I can't imagine doing anything else.

I want to help as many of you as possible to discover the joy of clay. I want to accompany you on your own pottery journey. Help you grow your skill, share my love of this wonderful craft with the world in a sustainable and mindful way.
I started my Pottery Club as a place where I can do that. I want to keep up the clay-conversation with YOU (beyond Instagram or email). I want YOU, my supporters to feel valued, treasured (because you really are) and given all the extra treats you deserve. As well as giving exclusive early access to new work, limited edition collections and seconds sales, this keeps my studio running and means I can spend more time making and less time marketing!

I get such a thrill from sharing my knowledge and skills as a potter. I started my Pottery Club as a place to share all the best pottery tips and tricks from my journey of being a full-time potter. When one of my students makes their first mug or bowl I really do get a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I want to give you the time and attention you deserve as a maker. In my pottery club you can progress at your own pace, in the comfort of your home, studio, garage, shed… wherever!
No competition, no comparison just sheer joy. In return, I get to continue doing the job I am passionate about.

By supporting me you are making it possible for me to continue to make awesome pots, pay my studio assistant a fair wage and at the same time strengthen my relationship with YOU, my supporters. It will allow me to find out what you really love and make more of it, plus help you in your own pottery journey by sharing the knowledge and the lessons I have acquire from over 15 years of being in love with clay. I'd say it was a pretty great deal all round!

Treats will include:
  • First access (before everyone else) to limited editions and ALL brand new work.
  • Exclusive seconds sales(you may or may not know, I never discount my work so this will be the only way to grab a bargain!)
  • I'll also be asking YOU what you'd like to see in my shop updates. Telling me what you love and love not so much.
  • Priority communication. I prioritise talking to my Patreon community over Instagram and emails. Your message will never get lost down a DM black hole.
For the serious pottery nuts - you can also get:

  • Everything Tier one's get.
  • POTTERY TUTORIAL VIDEOS (e.g. How to throw a large bowl, How to Throw Consistently etc...) Monthly, real time, detailed, narrated and subtitled.
  • Regular pottery tips and tricks (I have never before shared on Instagram or on my blog)
  • Studio insights - how I set up and run my studio.
  • Business&marketingtips.The honest truth about what it takes to be a potter full time.
  • Priority communication. I prioritise my Pottery Club over all other communication avenues. Need help with something pottery related? I’m here!
  • If it all goes well I may even introduce real life pottery shaped rewards for long term supporters.
Just to put you in the picture, by giving me just $4/  approx £3.24 per month you will be paying for the electricity to fire half a kiln or half a bag of clay or 20 minutes of my studio assistant's time or just shouting me a coffee ;-).

There is no contract and no time period you need to commit to. I just hope I can make my Pottery Club good enough that you’ll want to stick around. You can cancel any time and I won’t think any less of you.

Pop over and check out my Tiers. 

Thank you so much for your support.

Which means I get even more time to make My Pottery Club an awesome place to be.
