Fantastic workshop. Charlie was very knowledgeable, a great tutor and very patient. We had lots of opportunity to throw pots and I was amazed how much I'd learnt by the end of the day. Looking forward to returning to glaze my pots.
Covid social distancing measures in place so felt very safe.
Highly recommend this as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone.

Attended with my husband as his birthday present. Charlie is welcoming and attentive throughout the day. All equipment provided and prepared on our arrival. Charlie gives clear and thorough instructions and continues to help during the day for individual instructions. Made cylinders and bowls. Guidance given for onward firing and glazing. COVID rules followed so all good there. The day flew by. Would highly recommend- and to top it all there was tea and choccy biscuits!
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Louise & Tim
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, Charlie was an excellent tutor!
Right balance of information and practical experience, want to do it again, the arts centre is an under used resource.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Thank you very much for your feedback.
So much fun! This was such a lovely day! I went with a friend and it was a first time ever throwing clay. Charlie was very patient and gave us lots of time and info. It was really great to be in a small class and have your own wheel for the day.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Many thanks for that Anna. I am glad you enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Charlie's workshop was amazing. The teaching was pitched perfectly for a novice like me. Charlie was also very encouraging and positive about not stressing over our mistakes. I was given this course as a present and it was a delight. I would definitely recommend this course, it gives you a superb start to what could be a new hobby.
Thank you Charlie
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Caroline
I attended Charlie's workshop 6th October with a friend. It was superb! Highly recommend. Well paced with background info on preparing clay, demonstrations, explanations and of course hands on pot throwing. A very relaxed atmosphere. Lots of encouragement and lots of opportunities to start again with assistance at all stages to reinforce learning. I eventually made three pots that I am really proud of. I think I may have a talent! Can't wait to return to glaze them and collect after the final firing. I will definitely be taking this up. Well done Charlie. You have introduced me to a new interest.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Julia
Charlie is a wonderful teacher. His patience is amazing, and we did finally achieve pots worth firing. Thank you. The day was excellently planned, the timing allowed us to start again when things went wrong and it was relaxing and fun. I would recommend to anyone that they attend one of Charlie's courses. I will certainly persevere and attend more courses if I can. An excellent day.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Clare
I loved the course. Charlie is very experienced and very helpful.
I had no experience and was able to bring 3 pieces home. I went back to glaze them after the course and I would like to go back again for a few more sessions too.
I liked that we had a wheel for each of us, and plenty of time to make mistakes and start again. The course is also also very affordable.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Caterina
I had this as a birthday present from my son and daughter-in-law. I did not have a clue what I was going to do. I had a great time. Charlie was very patient and very good at explaining things. I managed to make 3 pots and can’t wait to go back and glaze them.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Elaine
A great beginners workshop to attend and enjoyed the experience immensly even though I went solo and slightly out of my comfort zone, especially as I have arthritis in my fingers, but Charlie was so patient, enthusiastic and explained each stage in detail.
Can't wait to see my 3 pots fired and ready for the next stage of glazing them.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Sandra
Great course with clear instruction from Charlie. Time taken to assist individually was much appreciated. Relaxed atmosphere. A lovely day learning something new.
Very good course - loved it
This is a fantastic course and a wonderful day learning how to throws pots on the wheel. Charlie is an excellent tutor, really clear instruction, and a friendly and encouraging approach. He really made the day a pleasure, and made time to help each of us individually through the day. I would wholeheartedly recommend the course and will be looking for follow up workshops so we can carry on learning. Thanks! Pascale and David

We had a great day throwing pottery. Charlie was really helpful and the facilities were brilliant.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Kelly
An excellent course, perfect for a novice. Charlie was an excellent teacher and once he had demonstrated we had loads of hands on time with great supervision. If I didn’t live so far away I’d go back and do more.
Response from Charlie's Pots:Hello Joanne
Attended this course as a couple recently and really enjoyed the whole experience. Charlie was very friendly and an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and communicated everything well. There was even homemade cake. Looking forward to collecting our pieces and glazing them. I would whole heartedly recommend this course.
