Today, my 12 year old daughter and I had a wonderful introduction to throwing pots on the wheel. We both made some lovely useable pots and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. Sharon was a great teacher and was very patient. We enjoyed cakes and mini easter eggs during the break which was a nice touch, and we would thoroughly recommend a taster session.

Response from Sharon Pottery Classes:

Thanks for the lovely review, it was great to work with you both and see mother and daughter together making progress and comparing your efforts!

My husband and I had a wonderful morning learning how to throw a pot with Sharon. We were warmly welcomed with coffee and biscuits before being introduced to the potters wheel. After a quick demo it was then hands on, and to our amazement we did actually end up with bowls that we could be proud of for our first attempts. Many thanks, we had a great time.

Thanks so much Jane for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you and your husband and literally watch your confidence grow as the potting went on during the morning. I am glad you were pleased with the experience.

I had a wonderful time with my friend at the weekend - Sharon is welcoming and warm....and very patient! Lovely home-made food for lunch and great fun using the potter's wheel. Thank you so much, Sharon - it was wonderful!
