Changing Tides Pt 2 – What IS WIGWAM?


After a period of denial and then some tough talking pals.  I am now making pots, as you can see, as Leyla Folwell again.

But I couldn’t let the Wigwam name or concept just disappear. Much thought and thrashing has gone in to this but here it is, re-born:

Wigwam Gallery is a creative artist run space at The Ceramics Studio in Ettington Park, Warwickshire. Wigwam has a collective philosophy and is gathering momentum as it draws more local creative people to join in.

We are a mixture of full time artists, creative professionals and other passionate volunteers. Our aim is to make art & craft in a communal and accessible environment, to show original work and to promote our open minded and collaborative approach to creativity.

If you are interested in our shows, events or in contributing artwork please get in touch through our Facebook

That is it! A growing creative beast in our lovely cosy studio. This will manifest itself in the form of exhibitions, art & craft workshops, social occasions and trips out!

Here is what we have planned so far:
