My mum and I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours with Richard, learning how to use a potter's wheel- neither of us had used one for years so we were both complete novices. We both managed to create three pots- not perfect but with their own rustic charm! We're looking forward to glazing our pots in the near future and then they'll take pride of place in our houses. Thank you for a lovely morning!

Response from Potterydayz:

Many thanks Ellie, I am glad you and your mum enjoyed the throwing session. I look forward to helping you finish your rustic pieces.

A really enjoyable morning spent learning a new skill. Richard was very patient and spent plenty of time demonstrating techniques and giving help and advice individually. Enjoyable and absorbing.

Richard hosted a wonderful day. clear instructions. A real relaxing experience, no pressure to have perfect technique. He allowed us to make our own mistakes which was a right laugh.

Never had any experience with pottery before, and the tester session was all worth it. I enjoyed it throughout, I found it much easier and person centred than in any school/ college environment. Made two pots and definitely will be back for more. Highly recommended.
