Colour & Clay is a place, an idea and a refuge created during the COVID-19 pandemic by Vinicius Les and Boglarka Eliz Les-Varga.

Our aim is to help individuals to connect with each other, develop a new passion, for families to learn together with their children and enjoy some mental respite.

Vinicius is a London based ceramics artist and painter. He learned the skills of pottery and ceramics from a very young age in his father's studio. Having completed higher educational studies in both Ceramics and Fine Art-Painting, Vinicius embarked on a 10-year journey in London, creating and teaching what he loves and has a passion for: pottery and ceramics.

Working with various organisations, Vinicius has formed a strong interest and skill in teaching individuals of all abilities including individuals with physical or/and learning disabilities or difficulties by helping them find their voice through pottery and art.
