Ever since attending this Introductory Course I have been hooked, It's an amazing material and Tracey is an outstanding and inspirational guide to it. She is not only knowledgeable but combines this with the ability to support and develop your own ideas and skills with sensitivity. I have been a regular at Craftworx and my admiration for her teaching and...

I have been on Tracey's introduction course and as a result I am hooked on Metal Clay. I have attend several of Tracey's ten week courses and also some of her other courses.

As a new resident to Wales I joined the group one year ago both to learn a new hobby and skill and also to meet new people. The group is both friendly and fun with members with very different projects and ideas to observe and give you inspiration and encouragement.

We had a fantastic weekend. Rowena is a patient and encouraging teacher who clearly enjoys her work and sharing it with others. Taught 3 complete beginners to throw, coil and decorate which was great fun and a perfect way to unwind after a busy week. We left with a real sense of achievement.5

A really great day. I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who don't feel particularly artistic but think they must have some creativity somewhere in them! Adrian presents you with the ideas and designs and shows you the required techniques but the artistic flair is yours to express. Really informal and relaxed and the other folk at the centre...

I went on the more advanced course and found that I learnt an awful lot. It began with a starter session introducing safe ways to use the knife and axe we then progressed to making spoons and other wooden implements. The course was relaxed and obviously a great deal of thought had gone into the planning of the course from...

The courses are well-run and thought out, highly informative, relaxed and a great deal of fun in lovely surroundings. There aren't too many people on each course and Robin, who is a highly knowledgeable, experienced and generous tutor, can spend time with each student to guide and help. He is also a great host with tasty home-made lunches day on...
