Raised in Cornwall, Callum Trudgeon studied traditional furniture making and design at Cornwall College. He joined the Leach Pottery in 2014 with a bursary that provided funding to train apprentices with little or no experience in ceramics. The apprenticeship gave Callum the chance to learn about all aspects of production pottery by working as a part of the skilled production team at the Leach.
After finishing his 3-year apprenticeship in 2017, he stayed on as the first production potter fully trained at the Leach Pottery, working part-time for the Leach, and part-time producing a range of his own work.
