I have been blown away by the fantastic results I have produced on this course and can't wait to do some more! I went into the course with absolutely no artistic ability and full of doubt, but Gabriella was patient and encouraging and not only do I now possess some totally unique pieces, I was able to create a lovely set of china for my new Grandson.

Response from Gabriella Shaw Ceramics:Thank you so much for your kind words Caroline, though I would dispute that you have no artistic ability, it was just lying dormant!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and during the last 5 weeks have had the opportunity to create some beautiful pieces I never thought I would have had the ability to produce. I am not artistic in any way and was slightly nervous to start with but with the expertise and guidance of Gabriella I have ended up with some pieces I am chuffed to bits with. The best bit is I can carry on and produce some more wonderful things. An excellent opportunity to make presents or selfishly like me, keep them all for myself!
Great value for money and great fun too.

I must admit I am not artistic at all, I have been totally blown away by this course. Every week I have come away with something beautiful, my family and friends have been so shocked. The atmosphere is great and very welcoming, it’s fantastic value for money and a great evening! Very relaxed and a great focus on what you want to do. I have already signed up to carry on!
