Who We Are


Hi I’m Pam, owner and ceramic artist, based here in lovely, Newton Abbot, Devon!

With a first class (hons) degree in Art & Design, specialising in Graphics and Illustration, I have been running my own design business for 14 years and have been creating in clay for over 6 years.

I love using typographical elements in clay, combining textures and exploring glazes. Some of my work is on display for you to see and buy. You're welcome to call in to see what I do!

I love helping others discover and explore their creative side and share the delights of working with clay.

What We Do

At the Mint Creative Studio we run 'Have a Go' Pottery sessions, art workshops hosted by local, practicing artists, showcase original and handcrafted artwork at our lovely studio in Devon Square, Newton Abbot, Devon.

The artists currently delivering creative and art workshops here at The Mint Creative Studio in Newton Abbot are:

• Ewan Walton (Oil Painting and Sketching)
• Nina Knaggs from Devon Paper Flowers (Handcrafted Paper Flowers)
• Jas from The Silk Purse (Sewing Lessons)
• Jal White from Jals Beads (Bead Jewellery)
• Brett Miller (Pot Throwing)
• Shona Singer (Pottery and Pot Throwing)
• Stuart Hopkins (Pot Throwing)
• Pam Neaves (Pottery)

So if you want to 'Have a Go' at something different or are looking for something original and different for your home, an original gift for someone special or just want to see what we do here at The Mint Creative Studio, d
o call in and see us when you're passing!
You can even give the gift of creativity to someone you know will love it here, with our gift vouchers!

Some sessions are in high demand with a waiting list so when you book a place, you may be preventing someone else attending. If you cancel on the day of the booking or don’t attend you also disappoint the artist who has put their time and effort into creating and hosting the workshop.

All artworks we sell are totally original, handcrafted one off creations by local and national artists that you can't buy on the highstreet, so when you're purchasing from us you're supporting our artists so they can continue doing what they love and we continue to provide this lovely, creative space for you!

Many Thanks
!

What Others Say

Press Release August 2017

Mint Creative Studio is a friendly new pottery studio in Devon Square, owned by ceramic artist Pam Neaves.
Pam has a first-class degree in art and design, specialising in graphics and illustration. She’s been running her own design business for 14 years and creating in clay for more than five years. And now she’s brought her skills to Newton Abbot town centre.

As well as Pam’s work on display and to buy she runs ‘have a go’ pottery sessions three evenings a week; ‘have a go’ oil painting classes with local artist Ewan Walton; and ‘creative indulgence’ events for special occasions, combining a bit of pottery with cream, savoury or high tea at the vintage tea room Indulgence next door. She also has gallery space for local artists to display their talents.
Her pottery sessions have been incredibly successful and spaces have filled up quickly.

Pam said: ‘I love helping others discover and explore their creative side and share the delights of working with clay.
‘Whether you’re an experienced artist who wants to use our clay, wheels and kiln or you’ve always wanted to give it a go…you’re welcome to join us!’
