I booked this course for mum and I for mums birthday.
Both of us were total novices but had a truly fabulous and fun day which resulted in a great selection of pots.
Thank you Matthew

Hi Catherine,

It was great to have you both on the course and what you both achieved without any prior experience was amazing. I am firing your pots this week so they will be ready to collect at the weekend.

We had a fabulous day trying out pottery for the first time for Richard’s 30th! It was just what we wanted, private tuition so we could really learn the basics and a full day so we could try out making lots of things, including a chalice!! Looking forward to collecting our finished products :). Thank you so much to Mathew for a great day x

Hi Phoebe and Richard,

I had a great day teaching both of you and it was evident how you both developed your skills throughout the day. Your pots look fantastic and are drying ready to fire and I will be in touch as soon as they are ready to collect. If you decide to buy a wheel and need any advice please get in touch.

If you want to develop your skills further in the future, it would be a pleasure to have you both back on the course.

Best wishes

What a fantastic day. Simply amazing fun, learnt loads and laughed a lot. Have already told loads of people to go on the course. It was so much fun that I would actually get a potters wheel at home if we had space!

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

Hi Mark,

It was great to have you both on the course and the resulting forms that you both produced were fantastic. If you ever fancy developing your skills further in the future, it would be great to have you both back on the course. You need to get that wheel so you can get practicing.

Hi Liz and Keith,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I had a fantastic day teaching you both and sharing my love of clay and the skill of throwing on the wheel. You both achieved so much in one day and it was lovely that you were both enthusiastic and were keen to learn more. It is always exciting when people complete the course and are so inspired they want to buy a wheel to continue learning. If you need any advice on a wheel just let me know. If you need to further your skills in the future it would be lovely to have you both back and extend you knowledge on the wheel.

Best wishes

I had a wonderful experience today! I have been looking for somewhere to throw a pot for a while and I felt extremely at ease and encouraged to achieve things I never thought I could. Matt’s encouraging and calm approach gave me the confidence to realise what you can achieve in the right environment. Will definitely be returning!

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

Hi Oonagh,

It was a pleasure to have you on the course today and see you achieve with your natural affinity with the clay. It would be great to have you back on the course and develop your skills further.

Hi Barbara,

It was lovely to meet you for the workshop and see you produce a fantastic range of pots. It really did give you the opportunity to use many skills, including making lidded vessels. The techniques that you acquired over the three days took you from a beginner and really built your confidence on the wheel. . It always amazes me just how much progress can be made in such a short space of time. It would be great to have you back on the course in the future and progress your skills further.

Although I love ceramics (especially stoneware), I had never worked on a wheel before. I had such a great day! Mathew was a patient and encouraging teacher. I learnt a great deal in 6 hours and was hugely pleased with what I managed to produce. Thanks, Mathew! An inspiring, challenging and relaxing 60th birthday treat!

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

Hi Jane,

It was a lovely to meet you and an enjoyable day teaching, seeing your skills develop on the wheel and chatting about our similar interests. I look forward to you seeing your finished glazed work.

Hi Janice and Phil,

I had a great day teaching both of you and seeing you develop throughout the day. It was great to see you throwing with 4 lb plus balls of clay and producing some really lovely forms.

I hope to see you again soon.

This is an excellent course, I had no experience at all of pot throwing, and as a complete novice did not expect to make as many things as I did: 9 items in all, not counting the ones that didn't work. Matthew is an excellent teacher with plenty of patience. It is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I highly recommend the course.

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

HI Ann,

Thank you for the great review, I had an excellent time teaching you and watching your skills develop throughout the day.It was great to see the look on your face when we put all the pots together and you realised just how many you had made.

I received a voucher for this course for my 20th birthday because I have a fascination for pottery but no experience at all. It's one of the best presents I've ever had; the day was so wonderful, and on top of learning so much about the skills and techniques in throwing a pot, I got to take home 4 bowls and 3 jugs with me which can actually be used! Matthew is really lovely and a great teacher. I definitely recommend this course and really wan to go back myself!

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

Hi Isabel,

A fantastic achievement on the wheel with a lovely range of forms produced. Your pots will be fired and glazed over the next few weeks, They can then be collected or posted out as discussed.

I wanted a one day throwing lesson for my friend Rina who was visiting from Holland, I could not have made a better choice, Mathew was just perfect. Rina wrote her review (sic) “It was a wonderful gift. A few hours on Saturday, Mathew taught me basic techniques for working with pot turning + same relevant tools. At the end of the day I was able to make my own idea for a clay jug on the disc. It was a perfect day.” Thanks from both of us.

Response from Dimbleby Ceramics - Beginners Studio Pottery Courses:

Thank you Richard,it was lovely to meet you both. It was great to see Rina achieve her goals during the day and go away with the confidence to use her new skills.

Matthew gave us an excellent overview of how to use the potters wheel with one to one instruction, and we totally enjoyed ourselves! It was a lovely creative day that flew by and we learned all kinds of new skills. Thanks Matthew for your careful instruction- we can’t wait to see the fired results!

Yet another excellent day at the wheel with Mathew; he constantly encourages me in developing new and exciting skills.

Who would have imagined that I could create storage jars, plus lids; even the ones that collapsed!!!

Thank You Mathew
