Hugely enjoyable ! Something I'd always wanted to try and was bought as a gift for me. Sue and Geri are really friendly and knowledgeable have helped me try new techniques and encouraged and inspired me. I've made lots of different pieces which are functional and it makes me proud to use them. I love coming to Fired Thoughts, always fun and the time flies by!

I have been coming to Fired Thoughts for over a year. I have learnt alot from Geri and Sue's help and expertise.
I came with my mum, at first as she has always been keen to have a go at sculpture and ceramics. I thought it would be fun to have a go together.
Geri and Sue really helped my mum, to come out of her shell and she created some really lovely pieces. Which she's very proud of!
I would definitely recommend to people to come to Fired Thoughts, if they wanted to experiment with ceramics. As Geri and Sue are lovely ,very encouraging and knowledgeable. They make you feel welcome and it's lovely relaxed atmosphere. The main thing is to have some fun with clay.

I was a complete beginner and my daughter thought this would make a great Christmas gift for me. She was so right. Both Sue and Geri create a thoroughly enjoyable experience in a relaxed atmosphere, whilst sharing their vast knowledge and skills with patience (and a sense of humour). I’m hooked - wish I’d discovered Fired Thoughts years ago.

Very friendly and knowledgeable for all levels. Very patient with me as a complete beginner. Also really flexible drop in / out I work shifts and can't always make same times every week. They start with basics and encourage you to try new things and techniques.
