About Rachael Ped

Rachael is a kind and patient teacher. She favours a relaxed approach to teaching, allowing students to express themselves and feel free in their creativity. 


Her own pottery journey began in Ongar 2003 at the age of 16, and she later went on to gain City & Guilds qualifications in Ceramics and 3D designs.

Rachael has a fun and playful approach to working with clay, enjoying large sculptures and whimsical creations, taking much inspiration from her time spent in Africa. 


Making everything in her bright and airy studio in Sudbury, Suffolk, with her trusty furry friend 'Bluebell' as a studio companion, she sells her work to galleries and craft shops/fairs all over Suffolk and Essex, and some of her work has even been sold to enthusiasts in France, Cyprus and New Zealand!
