Coiling workshop with Toni De Jesus

Refreshments provided

Toni De Jesus was born in the UK in 1995. He grew up in Madeira, Portugal and in 2008 migrated once again to England. This is when he was introduced to ceramics and followed it through by studying a foundation course at City College Brighton and Hove (2013-14). He eventually studied at Cardiff School of Art & Design (2015-18), where he graduated and established his practice.

Since graduating, De Jesus has been showcasing throughout the country including, FRESH at the British Ceramics Biennial (2019) where he was awarded the Guldagergaard International Residency (2021). Selected shows and exhibitions include, COLLECT Art Fair with Ruthin Craft Centre (2021-22), Ceramic Art London (2022) and internationally at Galeria dos Prazeres, ‘Vaso de Altar’ (2020), ‘Pela Paisagem Dividida, Retalhada’ (2021), Portugal. More recently he had his first solo exhibition, ‘Cacúlo’ at Museu de Arte Contemporâneo da Madeira – MUDAS, Portugal (2023)

De Jesus is currently based at Fireworks Clay Studios, Cardiff with a prolific collective of ceramicists. He is in the midst of producing a collection represented by J. Lohmann Gallery at Design Miami in December.

This workshop will be an opportunity to have a go at hand coiling a vessel using terracotta. Toni will employ his techniques which characterises the work he produces. The outcomes will be fired in Toni’s studio and brought back for collection at Mission Gallery.
