Had a great day trying out throwing and slab building with Jo. She was attentive and encouraging and really made the day very enjoyable. I can't wait to practise some of the techniques I learned and hope to come back to Jo's workshop soon! Thank very much for the experience, that amazing home made lunch and the friendly environment x

I have just come home from my first full day potting, though have done some of Jo's evening classes in the past. The big difference today being that the small (max of 6) class means you can really get to grips with the all important centering and can concentrate on throwing one prepped perfect ball of clay after another. Jo is an intuitive dyed in the wool potter. Her depth of experience and knowledge is inspiring - she can fix anything! She passes her skills on by demonstration, a prompt here and there and is on call whenever you need a bit if additional help.
What a productive day we've all had. Throwing in the morning, our table of pots drying in the sunny, rose filled garden over lunch of homemade quiche, local beef, and Jo's legendary blackberry sorbet. So we could turn the potts/ mugs/ vases and bowls in the afternoon, learn how to decorate tiles with slip and enjoy birthday cake that Lyndsey whipped up for Andy's special birthday - his wife had booked the course as a surprise present. With wood turning skills he transferred his meticulous eye to pottery rather too easily for my liking! A great day, enjoyed by all.
