Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Hi Richard,

Many thanks for such a wonderful review - it is really appreciated.

Really great session and I'm very pleased it lived up to your expectations. It's always nice to know that the effort put in to explain and demonstrate comes across in the way intended so your comment relating to that is particularly appreciated.

Your pots are drying nicely so I'll be in contact in a few weeks time. Thanks again for taking the time to send feedback.

Best wishes,
Chris

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Hi Hazel,
Many thanks for the great review and particularly the heads up on what you would like to achieve - some very nice shallow dishes that fit very well with what we tend to make in the classes but with the added twist of an interesting sgraffito design.
Really pleased that you found it such fun; it's lovely when people thrown themselves into the process.
Your pots are drying nicely (particularly in this heat!) and will be going into the kiln for the first of their firings next week. I'll be in touch soon.
Thanks again for the booking.
Best wishes, Chris.

A really enjoyable 1 1/2 hours. Chris was excellent at showing and telling us what to do to make tapas dishes. A friendly chap, with a well stocked studio, he made it look so easy. At the end of the lesson we’d both made 3 or 4 dishes each.....and had glazed them too. I recommend that anyone should have a go...it’s great fun, and quite therapeutic once you get the hang of it. Looking forward to collecting the fruits of our labour in a few weeks time :)

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Hi Nigel,
many thanks for the lovely review and particularly pleased that you found it a therapeutic and interesting session; a chance to just get immersed in something a bit different for a while.

I really enjoyed my pottery class, I haven’t worked with clay since school but I remembered loving it. Was the first time I used a wheel but Chris was so patient teaching me the steps. Was such a peaceful and relaxing experience. I’m so pleased with my pieces. Definitely would love to learn more. Thank you Chris

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks for the lovely review Paula - really pleased that you enjoyed the experience and the pots you made - they really are nice.
Hopefully you'll be able to develop your skills further.
Best wishes, Chris.

Thoroughly recommend a pottery class with Chris. His calm, patient and clear instructions meant that even I , as an absolute beginner, was able to produce some beautiful pieces that I am very proud of.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks for the lovely review Sandra. It was a great session and you did make some lovely pots!
Best wishes,
Chris

David Viner - - #31470

Being a novice, I was not sure what I would achieve in 1 1/2 hrs, but with encouragement and guidance from Chris I made 4 different pots of varying sizes, and they didn't fall over!!
Excellent tuition throughout. Can't wait to see the final results.
Many thanks Chris

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks for the kind comments David.
lovely pots - particularly the wide dish which definitely pushed the boundaries of clay v gravity! - great design to complement the form.
They're now drying nicely and should be ready in about 2.5 weeks.
Many thanks,
Chris.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Eileen for such a positive review, it is greatly appreciated. It was a really fun session, lots of chat and jokes but also some great pots made; which are also the precursor to more grand things by yourself and Jen in your studio - I look forward to seeing future results!
Best wishes,

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Becky for the positive review - it was a great day. Always nice to run a full day allowing those with existing pottery skills to have some dedicated time on a wheel and developing those skills further. Even better when it's possible to introduce some new techniques such as slip decorating.
Great fun.
Best wishes,
Chris.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Hi Natalia,

Many thanks for such a lovely review - I thought the pots your and Della made were great - particularly as you were both so unsure that you'd actually make anything! They were great!

I'm particularly pleased and grateful that you also felt safe in these strange times. It's nice to know that the additional efforts on both my and those attending are working.

Best wishes, Chris.

The course was fantastic. Everything very well set up and prepared, excellent clear and patient instruction with lots of encouragement and great facilities. We were a family of three and everyone loved the experience and we were all really pleased with our pots! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks for the lovely review Jackie - it's lovely to know you all enjoyed the course so much - and you've still got the excitement to come of seeing your fantastic pots!
Best wishes,

Hi Dan & Charlotte.

What a wonderful review - I'm blushing (an Orthoclase feldspar pink of course...)!

It was a great session and it is always lovely when people thrown themselves into the session.

I'm also always impressed when people start off (quite rightly) trying to work out where the hands and fingers go but very quickly get to grips with the processes.

Really well done - the pots are now drying nicely and will be in the kiln in a week or so for the first of the two firings and glazing.

Best wishes,
Chris.

Chris makes the course relaxing and enjoyable giving clear instructions and help and advice in a friendly and positive way. You get to make a number of things and decorate them. Great fun and a feeling that you have achieved something.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Miles. Lovely few hours exploring clay and what it has to offer. One or two of them may offer themselves up for eating your honey out of! Best wishes, Chris.

What a lovely day making pottery for the first time! Chris was a great teacher and we could all add our own creative touch to each pot. The steps involved are so interesting and it was so much fun using the wheel and decorating our pots! I will definitely be returning and I’ll be bringing friends too. Thanks so much Chris!

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Hi Megan - many thanks for the kind comments. Some great pots made and decorated and will be out of the kiln in about 3 weeks.

Bethan - - #29559

Had a brilliant time with Chris, learning the basics of pottery. The explanations were very clear and Chris was very patient! We also learnt how to decorate what we had made which was a lot of fun. It was really interesting finding out about the different techniques and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Bethan. The tapas dishes were fantastic and drying nicely on the shelf. They'll be ready for that tapas party in 3 weeks! best wishes, Chris.

Went for a birthday surprise and it did not disappoint.
It was a really wonderful and honest experience. Chris was incredibly patient and kind and we will both treasure our pots that we made forever. Would highly recommend this gorgeous adventure.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Lesley-Anne for the lovely review. It was a really great session - you both immersed yourselves in the throwing and decorating process, which is always nice and some great pots came out of the kiln.

W O'Dell - - #28386

Had a great afternoon with Chris, potting again after a 30 Yr gap! Surprised that I still had a feel for the clay, but needed Chris' expert guidance to get the best from it.
Collecting pots soon, so looking forward to seeing the results.
Good value, and a fun afternoon!

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Bill.
It goes to show that muscle memory is a fabulous thing and you certainly got back into the swing of throwing some very nice pots very quickly!
Best wishes, Chris.

Claire Booth - - #28351

Chris was really knowledgable and very friendly. It was great to see from a lump of clay how easy it is to form into something handmade! It would have been great to have had a little longer as the decorating felt a bit rushed.

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks for the review Claire. The pots were lovely and just right for that tapas and nibbles evening! Best wishes, Chris.

We had a day with Chris and Sarah; pottery in the morning and glass fusion in the afternoon with a lovely lunch in the middle. Really great day and very highly recommended. Thanks both... We had such a great time. Looking forward to picking up all of our "stuff" in a few weeks 😁😁

Response from Chris Greening Pottery:

Many thanks Karen - I was very impressed how you and Stuart grasped the fundamentals and produced both technically and decoratively really nice pieces - I suspect there will be a very colourful tapas evening soon?! Best wishes, Chris.
