I’ve attended several courses now at Trisha’s beautiful home and workshop. I had no experience of pottery previously but felt very much at ease in the relaxed and informal environment. It was a totally relaxing experience which I thoroughly enjoyed. The beautiful sculptures and pots in the house are very inspiring and the day is made perfect by fantastic home made cakes and lunch. A lovely setting with a patient friendly artist makes for a perfect day. Definitely recommended.

What a wonderfully playful and creative experience. Trisha is incredibly welcoming and encouraging and creates a very relaxed atmosphere. I learnt a lot and was delighted with my creations. The great lunch was an added bonus.

My friend and I spent a lovely day with Trisha. It was great to feel so encouraged to learn and experiment with clay. Trisha is a warm and inspiring teacher and sculptor, and her beautiful home and garden make for a very special day - the food was yummy too! Can't wait to go back and do the glazing.

We have had two wonderfully nurturing days with Trisha so far. The first to make our pots and the second to glaze them. She encourages you to play with the clay and the glazes and I have rarely seen my husband so engrossed. A delicious and relaxing lunch in the middle of the day just added to our sense of wellbeing. Thank you Trisha.

I contacted Trisha because I wanted a private, shorter pottery session with my husband (the theme of the 9th wedding anniversary is 'pottery'!)
I was not disappointed; Trisha could fit us in very flexibly, and organised a wonderful evening for us with some snacks and bubbly. Trisha is a very inspiring teacher, she taught us 3 different techniques with great materials and we both enjoyed our short evening course so much we booked to come again and glaze what we had produced. And I am sure we will be back, maybe with the kids! Thank you!

Another fantastic day at Trisha Crocker's studio! This was my third time on her course and I will be going again and again and again. A great day out learning something new each time in friendly, relaxed and beautiful surroundings. Trisha is a great teacher and inspires you to create. I can not recommend her highly enough. Good coffee and food too.

A fantastic day spent with Trisha, a warm welcome with coffee and homemade cakes. Then an introduction to different pottery techniques, by the end of the day I was very pleased with the many pots I had made, can't wait to glaze them now.
Great lunch too, thank you.
