I took this course last week and I am so happy that I was fortunate enough to learn from Richard. He is extremely generous with his extensive knowledge, and I improved so much from the first goblet to the last large platter that friends don't believe I made them! ;-).
Many thanks to Richard and everyone at Potclays for making it a great workshop.

I did this course at the beginning of the week. I can't believe how much we covered and how much I improved during the few days tuition. Richard's knowledge of porcelain was fascinating and invaluable. Such an inspiring teacher and great personality. I really enjoyed the course.
