Hi Serena and Sandro,

It was a pleasure to teach both of you and see you both progress throughout the day. Your pots are now drying ready to be fired and glazed. It would be a pleasure to have you both back on the course again in the future.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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

What a brilliant day! As a complete novice to pot throwing, I had no idea what to expect, but with Mathew's excellent teaching I made a lot more pots then I had envisaged! I cannot recommend the course highly enough.

Hi Virginie,

Thank for the lovely review, myself and Rachel had a lovely weekend teaching you and your family various creative clay techniques. It was great to see how creative you all are, including the thought that went into the handbuilding workshop with detailed patterns. The throwing workshop was great fun on the potter's wheel, with a range of beautiful forms being created. All the pots are now in the kiln firing and will be glazed next week ready to be posted out. We would love to have you back for another creative workshop in the future.

After an excellent weekend on the course I genuinely cannot recommend it enough! Not only did we learn a fantastic new craft, we made beautiful bowls and had such a laugh doing so. We loved the friendly relaxed feel and just cannot wait to go back again. Thank you

What an outstanding weekend. So much more personal than we were expecting. Both supportive and pushing us to be creative, and the results were fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much whilst also learning. I can’t wait to go back!

Hi Lucy,

We had a great day teaching all of you to throw on the wheel, seeing your creativity develop throughout the day using hand building techniques. I am sure that the famous Barry honeycomb technique will be used for future decoration.The work created was excellent and we can't for you to receive the finished glazed work. Should you want to return in the future for another workshop it would be a pleasure to have you back to develop your ideas further.

I attended the beginners course over a year ago and was hooked!!!
Mathew's endless patience, skill and enthusiasm is infectious and I now have a class every month; what an amazing gift from my brother in 2018.

Thank you Mathew, for so generously sharing your passion for pottery.

Give it a go!!!

Hi Lesley,

It is an absolute pleasure seeing your creativity grow each month and understanding of each technique. The big kiln reveal after decorating and glazing all of your work was really exciting, with outstanding results. I look forward to seeing you again in May.
