Lynn & Jeff reviewed: Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

"When I booked it for a gift experience we really didn't know what to expect. When we arrived we were welcomed by a lovely group, 7 of us in total. Step by step we were guided by Richard using different glazes etc to produce so many effects. I would definitely recommend the day and we left with 4 pots each, all different in styles. Richard and the group made it a very special day. We stayed in the Cross Keys pub in the village (5 mins from course venue) and got complimentary breakfast £10. A lovely gem of a village too."

Potterydayz responded:

"Thank you for taking the time to put up this detailed review. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your experience in Kings Cliffe. A pleasure to have you attend the Raku course and I hope to see you again in the near future. "

Derryn reviewed: Pot throwing on the wheel for a Half Day

"Richard was so welcoming and friendly. He is a brilliant teacher, explaining clearly and with demonstrations how to throw the pots and being there throughout the 3 hours to guide us all and come to our aid when we got stuck. Highly recommended!"

Potterydayz responded:

"Many thanks for your fine review Derryn, I look forward to seeing you again for glazing and the Raku course in the near future."

Colin Jaycocks reviewed: Pottery wheel throwing taster

"Had a great morning, learning the basics of using a wheel to throw a pot. Good atmosphere in the workshop area, a simple but effective set-up. Clear instruction given and great patience shown by Richard with the number of attempts needed to arrive at a recognisable outcome, mainly pots but a few dishes thrown in. Positive feedback after each attempt. All 5 students arrived at one or two successful results by the end. Now, need to go back to glaze the pots at a later, to be arranged date."

Potterydayz responded:

"It was nice to see you at Potterydayz Colin. Thank you for your thorough review. Look forward to seeing you again in the near future. "
