Roz Chapman reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"I approached this course with some trepidation as I have severe rheumatoid arthritis which badly affects the use of my hands. No need to worry! I was given unobtrusive help and support enabling me to enjoy the day to the full. A word of advice to anyone who likes to have total control of their artistic endeavours, just go with the flow, literally, and let the glazes and raku furnace do their own thing...the results will surprise and delight you. The harder I tried at the beginning the less pleasing were my results. Plenty of lovely food and drink available throughout the day."

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Hi Roz, thank you so much for your kind review. We are so glad you had an enjoyable day. We also had a great day, such a lovely group. Kind regards Janet and the team."

Pam and Gary reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"We had a really good day. We were looked after well and enjoyed meeting everyone. It was good to experience something where you didn’t know exactly what you would get at the end of the process and I appreciated that. We liked our pots and looking at the pots of the other people in our group. A great day. Thank you. "

Nicki England reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"We had a lovely day with Suzanne, Alan and Janet. They were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. Due to the heatwave, the kiln stayed hot and we got to glaze and fire several pots. We were all given the chance to get involved in all aspects of the firing, and were delighted with the outcome of the pots. We went home tired, smokey, but happy!"

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Hi Nicki, so glad you had an enjoyable day, in spite of the hot sunny weather. You certainly produced some lovely pots. Kind regards Janet on behalf of the team."

Sue Barnes reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"Great raku day with Suzanne, Janet and Alan. Only 6 in our group which was really nice and friendly. We were taught everything about raku. They showed us every element of firing then we could do it ourselves if we wanted to on the next firings I came away with 4 lovely pots. Would definitely recommend this course."

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Hi Sue, thank you so much for your kind review. Also many thanks for sending us the photos you took, really appreciated as we don’t have time to take any ourselves. Some lovely pots were produced by everyone, so glad you enjoyed your day. Kind regards Janet and the Raku team."

Eva reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"A delightful day. Relaxed and inspiring. Janet & Suzanne supply bisque fired pots and glazes and everything you might need, but are equally happy for people to take their own along. They demonstrated the process and then let the group try their hand at all the elements of raku firing. Highly recommended."

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Hello Eva, so glad you enjoyed your day we enjoyed it too, such a lovely group! Kind regards Janet on behalf of the Raku team."

thekitschsidekick reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"Had a lovely day (lucky with the weather which helped!) and produced 3 fabulous pieces. Janet, Suzanne and Allan are incredibly experienced and this comes across. They had thrown and fired a wonderful selection of vases, bowls and vessels which we got to pick from and everyone got a mix. Garden environment was pretty, quiet and serene. Only small suggestions for improvements: 1. samples for the glazes as there was a good deal of crossing fingers, 2. rushed to glaze but could have taken longer on 2nd and 3rd pieces while 1st was firing but didn't know, 3. bit more selection on lunch Regardless, worth the money, fab day."

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Thank you for your kind review, glad you enjoyed the day."

Janice Porter reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"The Raku course I attended yesterday, in Susanne’s beautiful garden, was a revelation and an inspiration. Raku was not something I would have ever thought of doing, but as an inspired Birthday gift, it was a delightful day. The two ladies, Janet and Susanne, who run the course were welcoming and presented the art of Raku in a very accessible way for an inexperienced student. Everything was explained very clearly and I was involved in the whole process from choosing and applying the glazes, to putting the pots into the kiln, then removing them into sawdust filled dustbins. Lunch and drinks were provided and the whole day was quite magical, especially when i was able to return home with the beautifully glazed pots I had made. A thouroughly lovely day. Thank you to you all."

Gone To Pot Ceramics responded:

" Hi Janice, thank you so much for your kind review. If you think there is anything at all we can improve on please let me know. We are always trying to make the day the best we can. If ever you want to try and make a pot yourself please get in touch. So lovely to meet you we all enjoyed the day too! despite it being so hot. Kind regards Janet"

Martha Werthern reviewed: Experience the Japanese art of raku using fire and flame

"Outstanding course. We enjoyed every minute of it! Janet, Suzanne and Alan were excellent teachers and lovely people, having built their kiln and mixed their glazes themselves. We left with a bunch of beautiful pots. We couldnt recommend it enough!"
