Want to review this course?

I'm in week two of Jenny's six week ceramic course and can highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a totally immersive, relaxing and really inspiring introduction to ceramics. Each week has been very different, learning new skills under Jenny's excellent tuition and guidance. We've experimented with different techniques, slips, glazes and forms and have already made lots of exciting items. The location is really peaceful, nothing is too much trouble for Jenny and she is very open to people doing their own thing and following their own design styles. Really refreshing and a lovely way to spend a Wednesday afternoon!
