Advanced Throwing Masterclass with David Frith
As an enthusiastic amateur I had never thrown anything bigger than six inches. As a small group there was plenty of hands on experience and personal attention which had me making faceted and lidded jars and 12 inch vases using the two piece throwing. In two days I had advanced more than the previous six months and inspired to further...

Five day woodwork course - wood
I have just completed both courses - "Tools and Things" and "Wood and Things" back to back. The last time I tried woodworking was over 40 years ago when I was about 12, so I was a little apprehensive about my lack of talent. I needn't have been. Both Richard and Mark were very good tutors with loads of patience...

All tools and materials were provided and we could all go away with at least one finished fan bird, and the confidence and skills to continue making them in the future. This...

Stained Glass Taster Day with Christian Ryan
I first saw Christian's work at a major contemporary craft and design show and loved the modern take on a traditional skill so I was keen to try the taster day when I saw that he also ran courses. In a 'full on' day I learned how to design for stained glass and select different colours and textures of glass...

An Introduction to Wicker Basketry
My friend and I went on Jon's basket weaving course recently and were both really impressed with the whole day. He was an articulate, calm, patient and very knowledgeable teacher. It was pitched at a perfect pace and everyone (6 people) made a basket to be proud of. He also made several cracking cups of tea for us! The room...
