What a fantastic day! Myself & a friend were treated like royalty, with cakes, biscuits & tea on tap. A full day of throwing was overseen with endless patience by Mark, who was lovely & constantly encouraging us both to keep throwing. It was a fantastic experience in a hugely characterful environment. An inspirational day, and one that I fully intend to repeat. HAVE A GO YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!
