About the Course

The ceramic hand building with clay workshops can be flexible and tailor-made to suit your requirements.

Want to review this course?

I was bought a voucher for one of Jenny's courses last Christmas. I visited Jenny's workshop in the Spring and as I have just finished mounting the work I feel I can now write this review.
The location is gorgeous but possibly not the easiest place to find - Jenny's directions were invaluable. Jenny is very friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable. I had a fantastic, relaxing time and have produced some beautiful pieces, some I have kept while others have been given as presents. I shall add pictures to the Facebook page - I was hoping I could add them to this.

Thank you Jenny.

Excellent day, I took a friend to Jenny's class as a birthday treat and we had a fabulous day.
Jenny is very warm and welcoming and great at explaining the finer points.
It was such a relaxing experience as we were able to let our imagination take over, guided by jenny at difficult stages.

We then sat down to the most wonderful lunch at the artisan bakery, well worth a visit.

This is a class i would love to do again as i have so many new ideas, if you want quality time with a great teacher then look no further.
