She allows people to be creative and do their own thing, and is able to adapt to all abilities so can be on hand when you need her, but does not interfere if you want to experiment with support if things don't go quite...

I work at Blackburn College Lancashire as 3D/Fine Art Technician. I came to Ed's to rekindle my mould making skills supported by the staff development department. I cant recommend Ed enough. Having been connected to the ceramics industry in Stoke for 30 years Ed knows numerous tricks of the trade which he's only too willing to pass on. I took...

Very interesting and informative. I came home with more work planned than originally intended. All was clearly explained. I did consider staying on for the afternoon session but felt it would be better to make use of the detail gained in the morning and will look forward to attending that course at a later date. Thank you very much.

This is an excellent workshop - both fun and informative. Sarah is encouraging and nothing is too much trouble. She guides you through the process every step of the way in her beautiful studio and just seeing the work she produces and the wonderful coloured leather is inspiring. I came away with a fantastic two coloured business card case which...

Sarah really is an inspirational person. Her courses are great value for money and I recommend them 100%. I've got 2 of her books about candle making. The candles you learn to make are fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to book. Caroline.

Image for Blacksmithing Experience Day
Just as previous reviewers have said - this is an excellent day course. Two teen boys dreams come true - bashing metal all day! My sons had a great day and made daggers, hooks and toasting forks. They thought Colin was a great teacher - relaxed and friendly. They were able to get on with the blacksmithing very quickly without...

Image for Advanced Throwing with David Frith
Extremely well run and thought out course. David Frith is an inspiring presence . I have been throwing off and on for thirty years and was still able to learn new techniques and improve my throwing. A generous mountain of clay to get through and good arrangements for completed work. Fascinating tour of the site; Potclays staff extremely helpful at...

Image for Felt Techniques: Sampling Day
What an excellent day.Information provided was very good and clear. Buying your materials pack made it possible to keep the momentum up not needing to stop to find ingredients from what I had brought with me. The four samples I have made all worked well and I am particularly pleased with the 'Cracked Mud samples that I have made which...

Image for Woodcarving
I joined Ernest's course at the Wooburn Craft School last year, with no previous experience of wood carving. It was wonderful. Ernest is a great teacher and the class was small and friendly so he was there at hand whenever advice was needed. The class was mixed ability: some beginners like me, and others more experienced, so there were also...
