My name is Yvonne Patterson and I'm a painter and ceramic artist.

I'm also an experienced art teacher. My aim is to deliver high-quality classes and workshops from my studios in beautiful County Tipperary, Ireland.

I wish to provide people with an introduction to the joys and pleasures of pottery and art.

Training & Professional Experience

I completed a Foundation in Fine Art course in 1989 at Galway Regional Technical College, and a Certificate in Visual Education from the National Council for Education. Following that, I attended Larkin Community College in Dublin and was awarded the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme Award in Sculpture and Ceramics.

In 2000, I took a Qualification in Bronze Casting at NCAD (the National College of Art and Design) and the same year, began Curatorship Training with the Alternative Entertainment Art Group.

More recently, I was awarded a Certificate in Business Studies by Offaly Enterprise Board, and studied Business Administration to Fetac Level 5 with the national training agency FAS (now known as Solas). I have years of experience teaching art, ceramics, and sculpture in private classes, and at Camphill Community, and at Dunfirth Farm Community.
