Description:

Spend a whole day celebrating your special occasion or just having some fun and creative 'time out' in a purpose built pottery studio in a lovely Kent seafront location.
Have fun creating something beautiful and useful from real clay, to keep for ever. Have a go on the potters wheel! Make something useful for yourself, wedding favours, something for a baby's room, a keepsake of a family reunion.
The day may cover all aspects of pottery: hand building, coiling, slab building and basic wheel throwing.
Work will be fired and glazed for collection at a later date. Finished work can be delivered by post for an additional cost.

This course is suitable for all ages and all abilities and children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a supervising paying adult.

What can I say, Jenny was a fantastic host and a fantastic teacher. We treated our mum for her birthday who hadn't done this in 30 years, having once made a business out of it. Jenny helped to make her birthday truly special. I couldn't recommend booking more.

Not only was Jenny great on the day, guiding all of us who had never done it before in multiple techniques but also helping our mum to blow off the cobwebs and run at her own pace. She gave advice after our visit to my mum as she considers getting back into more often.

All of us (novices and out of practice expert) had an incredible day. The most fun we have had together in a while.

We look forward to seeing how everything comes out!

I had so much fun doing this pottery class, Jenny was really nice and gave the group lots of advise and ideas on what to make. There was plenty of time to either create one thing and focus solely on that, or create lots of little things. We also had a go on the pottery wheel which is really fun and relaxing.

Definitely recommend, the last time I made something out of clay I was at school, so you can definitely go to this class with no or next to no knowledge.

The town was really nice, we were really fortunate with the weather so we went to the local pub which was right opposite the sea and sat in the garden.

So much fun.
Jenny was lovely with a great sense of humour. Can't wait to pick our items up.
Would highly recommend to anyone.

What a fantastic day of a new experience for me, I loved every minute of it. Jenny is an informative instructor, fun & fills you with confidence. I would certainly recommend anybody who wants to have a go. Any level of skill is & would be able to learn more with Jenny.

-

Thoroughly enjoyable day. Relaxed and completely the right atmosphere to get the creative juices flowing. Can't wait to see the end products.

Both myself and my wife loved the day. Lots of variety. Throwing, slab work and free form sculpting. Looking forward to seeing the finished articles once fired. Would definitely recommend this course. My advice for anyone is do have a think about what to create on the day. Lots of inspiration on the day too. Jenny was a good teacher and the day went so fast!

-

My friend and I had a wonderful day and learnt a lot about working with clay.

We both love the things we made and felt very looked after by Jenny in her beautiful Studio and home.

Thank you Jenny

What a fantastic day! Bought this day for my mum for her birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Jenny makes the day so special, sharing her knowledge and studio, we would not hesitate to recommend this experience.

Booked a Pottery class for our wedding anniversary.
Booking was easy with Jenny being very quick to reply.
Travel, very easy to find and in a beautiful location on the coast. Parking available.
Studio and Equipment, Nice little studio at the back of the garden, hot drinks and biscuits provided through out the day. The studio was well stocked with so many different tools.
Pottery, We made loads of thing and Jenny was great giving us inspiration and teaching us to make lovely things. We made plates, a vase, bowl and a spoon and also got use the throwing wheel to make a few bowls each. Jenny gave us completely free choice of whatever we wanted to make. As soon as we arrived we got straight into working with the clay. We also got to paint some of our pieces.
The Host, Jenny was lovely and a perfect host. We talked and laughed all day.
Overall, had a great day and would defiantly go again. Cant wait to get our finished products after they have been glazed and fired.

A fabulous day - well designed to allow each of us a chance to have a taste of different technics and find our own preferences. Brilliantly taught - Jenny knew exactly how much input each of us wanted and when to let us make our own mistakes - a rare gift in a teacher!

My partner and I treated ourselves to a day learning about and making pottery with Jenny. We were keen to give it a go and find out whether this was a hobby we wanted to take on. Jenny was very welcoming and provided refreshments when we first arrived. She was very patient with us and keen that we try whatever we fancied and very flexible which meant we had a go at a few things. We would both recommend this day and felt it was very good value for money. Jenny obviously has a lot to do in preparation and after we'd finished for the day. We haven't yet picked up our pots (Jenny gave us the option of posting them to us) but are excited to see the outcome of our creative endeavors! We were both complete novices, although I am sure that more experienced potters would also benefit from Jenny's knowledge and expertise. In all, we had a great time and would definitely recommend the day to others.

I bought my boyfriend and I a day's workshop for his birthday and we had the most fantastic time. Jenny is friendly, helpful and patient (important for us beginners!) and we had a brilliant day trying our hand at a bit of everything we had time for. The location is stunning and we walked along the beach over lunch. Thanks Jenny for such a fantastic day, we can't wait to see our pots!

-

Highly recommended . Thoroughly enjoyable day . Relaxing , creative , informative and fun! Jenny is the briliant and the facilities and lunch could not be better . We can't wait to display our vases.
An experience we'll never forget .

My sister and I attended a full day workshop. Jenny gave us lots of options and design ideas and we were able to have a go on the potters wheel and to hand build pots.

She took us through each stage and was fun and inspiring and coached us through the processes until we had made our 'masterpieces'.

We were given refreshments throughout the day and a very nice lunch and came away feeling relaxed and satisfied with our efforts …. and surprised at what we had achieved! A special day.

Thank you, Jenny!

Fantastic Pottery Day
Myself and my sister booked up with Jenny at epple bay ceramics to celebrate my mums 70th birthday in August.
Jenny made my mums birthday very special from start to finish, when we arrived the sun was shining, Happy Birthday bunting had been hung around the studio and a lovely handmade surprise gift for the birthday girl were such thoughtful touches. Jenny is an amazing Potter & teacher she is very calm helpful and explains things very clearly. We all made several different items and was not limited with clay like other courses. We all had the most amazing day and have returned again last Saturday for a full day of pottery fun and now I'm been treated for my birthday in November. Five

My husband treated me to a lovely birthday surprise, a day pottery making with Jenny. We had a great time, Jenny made the day very special for us. She is a great teacher, very calm and helpful, we had the most wonderful experience wheel throwing and coiling, we just can't wait to go again. The food provided was fantastic and the keep sake gift was really thoughtful. A beautiful sunny day spent learning something which we both ended up loving, a new hobby for the both of us. We are looking forward to picking up our creations and for the next lesson. Thank you Jenny, we are two very happy customers :-).
