A Pulborough artist has turned her garden shed into a bright art gallery to exhibit and sell her work.

Wendy Yates has been an art teacher for 35 years and decided that she would like to build a ‘Clay and Glass Gallery’ in a bid to attract local people and eventually develop a community hub for fellow artists.

“We moved here three year ago and have done a lot of work to it so far, we have a couple of acres out there which is just right for building studios so people can eventually come here and work without paying exorbitant rates,” said the 57-year-old.

The gallery in Northey Cottage, Stane Street, Pulborough, has a display of Wendy’s original clay and ceramics for people to buy and commission their own styles.

“I’d like more interaction, whereby I’m selling stuff but work with people and say ‘what is it you want?’”

The Cranleigh School teacher also runs ‘Clay n Glaze’ a mobile pottery painting business.

The gallery is open everyday 11am to 7pm. Visit www.claynglaze.co.uk
