Must say I had the most wonderful day at Jane's place. After a warm welcome myself and the other Raku virgins settled into a relaxed, informative, busy and very productive fun day, producing work which we were all very proud of. My introduction to Raku was an eye opener, I loved it and would highly recommend Jane's course to anyone with an interest. I am now looking forward to my next visit to one of Jane's Pottery courses.Thanks Jane.
Jane is a warm and welcoming lady who lives and breathes raku. Her lifetime of experience and enthusiasm shines from the minute you step through the archway into her wonderfully creative and knowledgeable world. She immerses you in a hands-on experience that enables you to truly understand the nature of raku glazing and firing, encouraging you to take part from the onset. She provided me with the skills and confidence to have a go myself back home, returning for a second day a month or so later to consolidate what I had achieved and discuss my mistakes. Jane also taught me further raku techniques to have fun with. It's refreshing to attend a course that enables you to do it for real rather than stand around watching an instructor do everything ... and in such a welcoming lovely environment too. I highly recommend this course and hope to return again in the spring for even more.
We visited Jane to give raku a try for my partners birthday because we had always wanted to give it a go. We had the fabulous day that really gave us an insight into what raku can achieve and the different methods that can be used. We would love to return to continue our raku education with Jane who is a true master. I have thoroughly recommend this course to others on my general pottery course.
i have been to two Raku days at Janes and thoroughly enjoy every minute of it, it never fails to amaze me at the way Raku turns out , Jane is an Excellent teacher and makes every one so welcome , I also attend her weekly pottery classes witch are great I wouldn't miss any of it .
Absolutely brilliant day! Jane is a fantastic tutor and you get to try lots of different techniques in a very encouraging atmosphere. I really loved every minute of the day and can't wait to come back. Would thoroughly recommend this day to anyone - and also recomend people to look at Jane's website as her own work is lovely.
