Loved the course, Jack was an exemplary host and teacher. He took his time to explain what we would be doing and gently guide us during the execution.
Would absolutely recommend this course.
Thank you Jack

From the ease at which the location with good parking can be found, to the feeling of being in a calm and creative setting this 1 day course leaves you with a feeling that you achieved more than you thought possible - A great day!

What a brilliant afternoon! I'd booked a private lesson for a friend, whose birthday it was that day, and myself. Jack is an excellent teacher - neither of us had done any pottery since school days but we created three pots each! Can't wait to get the finished articles back. Wonderful venue, very friendly welcome and expert tuition. Would definitely recommend and definitely want to go again!

This course exceeded all expectations from the welcome, through calm expert instructions and a gentle guiding hand to avoid disasters. A throughly professional course but one where learning, achievement and social interactions were all valued. Lunch was excellent as were the frequent breaks to avoid total fatigue!
Very good value on all levels.
Well done to a young but successful enterprise which I hope will continue to prosper.

We had a really great session with Jack. He was a excellent teacher, patient and very helpful. Great venue, had all the necessary tools etc. Our first time at throwing a pot and we ended up with 3 pots each. And they actually looked like proper pots!!.

My husband and I had a wonderful lesson with Jack. The setting is spectacular and all the equipment is provided. Jack is an excellent teacher and explained everything as we went along. Even after I had managed to stick my thumb into my spinning pot he just lent over and magiced it back together for me! We would highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Jack!

We got the taster session for a friend as a birthday present and we all enjoyed it very much and had such a nice afternoon. It was a really nice, relaxed atmosphere and Jack was so helpful and managed to correct even our wobbliest pots. He managed, don't ask me how, to have an eye on all of us and make us all feel like we can master the wheel. I would definitely recommend the taster course and I'm sure if you move on the the longer courses they will be just as great.

A fantastic course, thanks so much Jack! I booked the course for me and my friend and we both had a really enjoyable time - Jack was lovely to talk to and a fab teacher. I think the course is great value for money, as a lot can be accomplished in the time even if you are a beginner. Excited to see our finished pots in a few weeks!

What an amazing course! Jack was very welcoming and friendly from the beginning to us all. He was there when I needed the guidance and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Looking for a taster in pottery? - look no further! Very excited to get my three pots in a few weeks!

Lovely venue, beautiful studio and Jack is an excellent, knowledgeable and patient teacher! Two friends and I did the 2.5 hour course for my birthday and we all had an amazing time, learned a lot, and had a laugh at the same time! Jack even provided snacks and hot drinks, and gave us all individual coaching. I loved it so much I am hoping to come back and do either the 2 day or the 10 week course. Thank you so much Jack!

What a fun day out. Really enjoyed my first taster of willow weaving and now have a chicken sat in the garden. The tuition was good and we were made to feel very welcome. I would definitely do this course again.

My husband booked me up a morning taster session to try out pottery throwing for the first time.
I absolutely loved it, what a great location to start with and just a brilliant enjoyable morning. Jack makes you feel comfortable from the start and helps you achieve a recognisable pot by the end.
I am booking up a 10 week course and so looking forward to it. Thank you.

Great course! I have made baskets in the past but making a willow sculpture is very different and I thoroughly enjoyed learning a new craft and producing a chicken that now has pride of place in the garden.
Judith is very welcoming and a wonderful teacher.
Jack sent detailed information about the course and how to find the lovely venue, and provided us with a delicious lunch (vegan option was no problem at all).
I would definitely recommend it and plan to book another course with Judith in the future.

A wonderful introduction to throwing a pot!
The setting is easy to find, lots of parking and beautiful inside. It's a light and airy studio with excellent facilities.
Jack has a fantastic teaching style and is obviously a very skilled potter. He took great care to explain the process and then was always on hand, with tremendous encouragement and calmness, to help when required. It is also great value for £50, with my three little pots sent on to me after firing for a small p&p fee.
I really enjoyed this taster morning and would actively encourage anyone who fancies having a go to book with Jack.
I only wish I lived closer, I'd join a ten week course in a flash!

My husband and I were given the 2.5 hours pottery throwing vouchers by our son as a surprise '0' birthday present each combined with a wedding anniversary present. We didn't know what to expect and the afternoon being a surprise, we had no advance expectations. Jack was very welcoming (with ample cups of tea and coffee and a plate of chocolate brownies he couldn't go wrong) and explained the various stages of making a pot which we promptly forgot, but we relaxed during the process of moulding the clay which we found very therapeutic.
Jack then calmly took us through the process again as we made our first of three pots each which turned out better than we'd expected. Pot No.2 turned out better for me than the first so by the time I got to pot No. 3 I was feeling rather cocky and it was only Jack's miracle work proving what an expert he is, that saved it from disaster. He was very encouraging throughout, so although each of our pot shapes were completely unplanned, by the end of our session we'd had a great time and felt very pleased with ourselves.

My partner and I did the private pottery throwing lesson and would 10 out of 10 recommend. Jack is incredibly hands on, patient and his style of teaching is really easy to follow. The only downside is that it went too quickly! We could have happily spent all day in the studio. Having said that we’re both so happy to have left with 3 pots each that we love which is only thanks to Jack. Will definitely be returning to do the 10 week course.
