Cadiot remembers her first encounter with ceramics when she was a small child and still holds onto the clay puppet that she made that day. After numerous courses, Cadiot worked as an apprentice for Rob Goldsmith’s Selborne Pottery in Hampshire, where she learnt much about the craft.
Cadiot makes mostly functional wares. She throws, hand-builds and uses a variety of techniques for surface decoration that she applies with elegance and precision. Her natural warmth combined with fastidiousness for detail makes her a natural teacher. She regularly teaches small groups from her studio.
Before being at Kindred Studios, Cadiot worked her ceramics from her home in North Kensington. “From half of my bedroom to be precise!”
Kindred Studios has allowed Cadiot to teach whilst nurturing her own need for discovery in the field of ceramics. A dream she hoped to be able to achieve in the far future landed quite unexpectedly in her own neighbourhood, a year ago last April.
In addition to providing low cost maker-spaces, we offer workshops to local schools as well as working with organisations like Age UK and the Dalgarno Trust. We also run scheduled AS/A level school tours with a talk from makers from each discipline, lasting about 1 hour.
