Potters Wheel Throwing for Beginners Trentham Stoke-on-Trent (Dates can be booked to suit you)

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.

Best wishes

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.

What a fantastic day my daughter, my partner and I had with Matthew at Dimblebey Ceramics.
We were made to feel so welcome. The course was fun and Matthew was an excellent teacher. We were all complete novices yet each of us went home with several pieces of pottery. Many thanks.

Easily enough equipment and space for 2 people to be taught at the same time. A good day for my daughter and I. We both made some bowls and jugs. Looking forward to seeing the final results when we get them back.

My son and I have just had a superb day on the beginners pottery course.

From learning the basic techniques to progressing in our own directions, learning from our errors and having the space to experiment. Matt was generous with his knowledge and patience. Thank you.

I would be willing to bet that whatever you might want from a day like this you won't leave disappointed.

I booked the potters wheel workshop as a birthday present for my husband . Both myself and my husband attended and had a fantastic day . Having no experience at all using a potters wheel , I came away feeling like I had learnt new skills . Matthew was very friendly , clear with his instructions and patient . An excellent day , would love to attend again sometime to build on the techniques I learnt . Thankyou Matthew .
