Maker's bio

I started work as a hydrographic surveyor following a degree in marine geology. Whilst it might be a bit of a leap from dredging up clay to using it on a potter’s wheel, the influence of the marine environment is evident in my work. I use coloured liquid clay (slip) which provides a fantastic fluid palette for me to explore geological and marine geomorphology patterns. A member of both the Midlands and, Westcountry Potters Associations I run market stalls across Worcestershire and beyond.

Sarah Blakemore reviewed: Pottery Throwing (Group Discounts Available) Lessons in Worcester

"My daughter and I had a fabulous morning. Although neither of us had any experience whatsoever we were really pleased with the results. Chris is a knowledgeable and patient teacher and made us feel really welcome. Would definitely recommend. 😊"

Chris Greening Pottery responded:

"Many thanks for the positive review Sarah - it's always nice to allay someone's fears that all they are going to end up with at the end of the session is a flopped mass of mush! Your pots are lovely! They're now drying nicely on the shelves and should be with you in a few weeks time. Best wishes, Chris."

Jenny C reviewed: Pottery Throwing (Group Discounts Available) Lessons in Worcester

"Sign up now! We had a thoroughly brilliant evening throwing two pots each with Chris in his studio. Chris is a clear, gentle and encouraging teacher and under his tuition we were both delighted with the results of our endeavours, which will be posted on to us after firing."

Chris Greening Pottery responded:

"Many thanks for such a lovely positive review Jenny. It was a very good session - some lovely pots made and thrown with "vigour"!! They are now drying nicely on the shelf and should be with you in 3-4 weeks time. Best wishes, Chris."

"A really fun experience and a memorable day! Chris was brilliant at teaching us (from scratch!) and being very patient with all our questions and inexperience. A fantastic, well run course. Can’t wait to see our final pottery pieces in a few weeks 😊 "

Hannah Bowman reviewed: Pottery Throwing (Group Discounts Available) Lessons in Worcester

"Had a great first time experience on the wheel! Chris explained everything really clearly, was extremely knowledgeable and just generally a lovely guy. We both managed to make a couple of decent looking pots with no disasters, which I was amazed at! And to get them decorated in the time too was an added bonus. Would highly recommend paying Chris a visit. "

Chris Greening Pottery responded:

"Many thanks for your lovely review Hannah - it's always lovely when people get stuck into the lesson and have a project in mind. Your pots have actually had their first (biscuit) firing and are waiting to come out of the kiln, get their transparent glaze and have their second firing; they should be ready in a couple of weeks. Best wishes, Chris "
