Intermediate Throwing with Richard Heeley

Wonderful course run by Richard. I attended his basic throwing course in August 2018 at Clay College which was amazing, but now I’ve got some background everything has started to click into place. He has a wealth of knowledge, very down to earth and very patient in dealing with specific issues you have. I would highly recommend Richard's courses as you learn so much - get booking!

Intermediate Throwing with Richard Heeley

This course exceeded my expectations. Friendly staff, stimulating shop and good lunch. Course kit was very well thought out. Most of all Richard is a marvellous teacher, very patient, hands on, very skilled. As an experienced potter he knows exactly how to help improve individual potter. My skills have advanced more in two days with Richard than in the last 2 yrs. Couldn't have asked for more. Excellent 😀👌

Intermediate Throwing with Richard Heeley

Wow. What a brilliant way to spend two days. Richard covered so much ground, was clear and articulate in his teaching, and generous and supportive with his feedback. I have come away with more confidence, enthusiasm and clarity about how to improve my practice. Thank you to: Potclays for making this happen; Richard for his commitment, support, talent and expert teaching; and fellow participants for great company and clay chat. 👏👍😁

Animal Sculpture with Jeremy James

Learnt some very interesting sculpture techniques and tips. Felt the last afternoon was very rushed though and didn’t manage to complete my piece.

Tilemaking with Richard Miller of Froyle Tiles

Complete pottery novices were slightly worried about what to expect but the worries soon disappeared as soon as Richard began to speak.. Had a wonderful time, Richard was able to balance his time between the novices and the potterholics and turn the whole event into a fun and informative activity. Lunch was excellent as were the facilities.. definitely worth a go if you're in two minds!

Porcelain Masterclass with Richard Heeley

I took this course last week and I am so happy that I was fortunate enough to learn from Richard. He is extremely generous with his extensive knowledge, and I improved so much from the first goblet to the last large platter that friends don't believe I made them! ;-).
Many thanks to Richard and everyone at Potclays for making it a great workshop.

Porcelain Masterclass with Richard Heeley

I did this course at the beginning of the week. I can't believe how much we covered and how much I improved during the few days tuition. Richard's knowledge of porcelain was fascinating and invaluable. Such an inspiring teacher and great personality. I really enjoyed the course.

Basic Throwing with Jon French

I would certainly recommend this course.
To have two days to experiment with throwing and turning was a great experience - although challenging at times! Jon was an excellent teacher, who was very patient and helpful.

Response from Potclays Ltd.:

Hi Tamsin, thanks so much for your review! We're very glad to hear you enjoyed the course and we will be sure to pass your comments on to David. As we mention on the course programme sheet, timings are flexible according to the progress of the group. However, we decided on a 4pm published finish time for our courses as we have, on occasion, had a mad rush at the end of a course for students to place or collect their orders. We are very happy for students to carry on working until shortly before we close, if they wish. Thanks again for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Intermediate Throwing with Richard Heeley

This course was excellent - I have come away inspired. Richard was positive and friendly, whilst being professional and disciplined. I highly recommend both Potclays and Richard Heeley as a teacher. I have learnt a lot and will be back for another potclays course in the future. Thank you

Intermediate Throwing with Richard Heeley

It has been an excellent two days with Richard, he has a great way of encouraging/pushing you more than you realise. Centring 3Kg was a personal highlight.
As always I picked up things I didn't know I needed to know and my eye is wandering on to do another course.
Everyone at Potclays was properly friendly and helpful- a delight.
