The morning was well planned and it was really helpful to share a wheel in pairs, as observations helped our learning. We were well taught and had great fun in a relaxed and hospitable environment.

Thanks linny2017! We thoroughly enjoyed working with you guys - definitely one of the group booking highlights of the year so far. Thanks for being such great fun and the moment Jess had to leave the studio in hysterics - priceless!! We'll be in touch as soon as your more than 'fit for purpose' creations are out of the kiln....

I had a most enjoyable time, learning the basics of pot making with a great group of friendly people. The two days simply flashed by! Jon is a great instructor; by the end of the second day everyone had successfully made and decorated their pots and plates, ready for firing. We'll all be looking forward to receiving them in due...

What a wonderful place this is! We went for my friends hen party with 17 ladies (and a man!). Jon made the whole afternoon fun and entertaining. We did coil pots and a taster on the wheel each which was spot on for what we wanted. It's the above and beyond elements that make this place so special. Nothing was... More

We had a fabulous time and our children are asking to go back again. We've never used a potters wheel so the whole experience was a new one for all of us. Expert, friendly guidance was given throughout. It's not as easy as it looks but we all had pots to show for it. Thank you to all the staff... More

Spent the weekend with my wife learning to make pottery. It was led by Jon, who we found to be welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable about all things to do with clay. He is also a very good teacher, even to total novices such as ourselves. All of the first day was spent at the wheel, throwing pots - very... More
