My husband booked me up a morning taster session to try out pottery throwing for the first time.
I absolutely loved it, what a great location to start with and just a brilliant enjoyable morning. Jack makes you feel comfortable from the start and helps you achieve a recognisable pot by the end.
I am booking up a 10 week course and so looking forward to it. Thank you.

A wonderful introduction to throwing a pot!
The setting is easy to find, lots of parking and beautiful inside. It's a light and airy studio with excellent facilities.
Jack has a fantastic teaching style and is obviously a very skilled potter. He took great care to explain the process and then was always on hand, with tremendous encouragement and calmness, to help when required. It is also great value for £50, with my three little pots sent on to me after firing for a small p&p fee.
I really enjoyed this taster morning and would actively encourage anyone who fancies having a go to book with Jack.
I only wish I lived closer, I'd join a ten week course in a flash!

My partner and I did the private pottery throwing lesson and would 10 out of 10 recommend. Jack is incredibly hands on, patient and his style of teaching is really easy to follow. The only downside is that it went too quickly! We could have happily spent all day in the studio. Having said that we’re both so happy to have left with 3 pots each that we love which is only thanks to Jack. Will definitely be returning to do the 10 week course.

Fabulous workshop! We both enjoyed learning a new skill and were chuffed with what we achieved with Jack’s guidance. Jack is a great teacher and we would love to return and do some more at some point. Many thanks

I thoroughly enjoyed my taster pottery session with Jack. It was really relaxing and thanks to his calm teaching I was really chuffed with the three pots that I made. Very much looking forward to starting the 10 week course!

Lucy and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2.5 hr course and were very surprised and pleased with our 3 pots which turned out much better than we had thought they would!

This was due of course to our brilliant teacher, Jack, he was excellent at explaining what we had to do, patient and encouraging. Of course our natural talent played a part too!!

We are looking forward to collecting our finished products!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to try something new especially if like me, you were surprised at your results!! Thanks Jack!

We booked an afternoon taster for 4 as a birthday present for a friend and all I can say is we had a great time! We were all complete beginner's and never trying anything like this before, but under Jack's excellent guidance and tuition we all turned out some amazing pots to be proud of. It was a lovely location, a light and airy studio and we were made to feel so welcome with drinks and sweet treats. We are looking into doing the two day weekend course in the future. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Had a really enjoyable morning. I was a total beginner. Jack was patient and his instructions and advice were very calm and clear. He was always close by to help when things went wrong, which was not too often! Watching a pot rise before my eyes was a very satisfying experience. I am looking forward to seeing my pots glazed and finished. Will certainly do more as I enjoyed it so much. Thank you Jack and thank you Laura who gave me the course as a present.

I did an afternoon taster session and am a complete beginner, having never used a potter’s wheel before. Jack is a great instructor and patiently helped throughout. I managed to throw three reasonable looking pots and would definitely try this again, something completely different! The studio itself is in a lovely location and the home made brownies were delicious.

I booked an afternoon taster as I wanted to have a go at using a pottery wheel. I am very much a beginner but I found an excellent tutor in Jack. He was friendly, knowledgeable and both attentive and calm during the session. I was delighted to make three pots (a little wobbly) and am thinking about returning at some point for the ten week course.
I would definitely recommend!
