Richard hosted a wonderful day. clear instructions. A real relaxing experience, no pressure to have perfect technique. He allowed us to make our own mistakes which was a right laugh.

I booked a three hour pottery throwing class with my mum, and we had such an enjoyable time. Neither of us had ever thrown pots before, and we both created a couple of pieces! Richard was extremely helpful and has so much knowledge to share. Covid restrictions were considered, we both felt very safe. Don't hesitate, just book!

Brilliant day. Neither of us had thrown pots before. Richard explained everything simply and clearly. We were totally engrossed in the process and the morning flew by. Playing with the clay in the afteronn was also great. Making coil pots took me back to my school days. Cant wait to return to glaze our creations.

Response from Potterydayz:

Thanks guys- see you soon for glazing

Beginners luck. I have wanted to try pottery for quite some time and I'm lucky I came across Richard. Especially with this pandemic he was very careful, with social distancing and lots of sanitizer, while still being able to teach me how to throw clay. I managed to make two well centred pots in a two hour session. Would definitely go again.

Response from Potterydayz:

Well done Rebecca, I look forward to seeing you again. Richard

I booked the 3 hour course as a treat, and what a great day it was. Richard had everything set up in the garden undercover, all spaced out and adhering to the covid rules. He expertly showed us what to do and we had lots of goes at trying to make a bowl or vase, some good but most not so good. It was a really fun messy half day, and would recommend to all.

My husband and I recently did a 3 hour course on the wheels with Richard. It was so much fun and so well explained and demonstrated. We both ended up with pots that we are proud of for first attempts.
Richard is so kind, attentive and knowledgeable - what he doesn't know about pottery isn't worth knowing!
We will definitely be back.

What an amazing day myself and my son had on this course! I have always wanted to do it and it didn’t disappoint. Richard is an amazing teacher with a wealth of knowledge and it was fascinating listening to him explain the raku process. Safety was his upmost priority throughout the whole day. We both loved it and would definitely recommend.

Response from Potterydayz:

Really pleased you both enjoyed the experience

This is the second pottery course we have done with Richard, he is an amazing teacher with so much experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. My son is 15 and doing 3D Art GCSE and this has given him some extra experience during the time he has been away from school during the pandemic. I would highly recommend Richard!

Response from Potterydayz:

Thank you very much. Lovely to pot with you both. See you again

Birthday present: I was apprehensive walking in but needn’t have worried. There were plenty of sanitizers and sat within the 2 metre distance.
Had a great day with Richard teaching us how to throw a pot on the wheel. Made 3 pots and a vase. Looking forward to going back for the next process.

Response from Potterydayz:

Well done Angela, and many thanks for the review, see you again soon.

Had a super day with my friend - delayed for three months due to the pandemic. It was so good to finally get there!
Richard was very patient with us, showing us how to do it, but also letting us get on with our own ideas, for better or worse!

Response from Potterydayz:

Delighted you both enjoyed the day. See you for glazing soon.

Never had any experience with pottery before, and the tester session was all worth it. I enjoyed it throughout, I found it much easier and person centred than in any school/ college environment. Made two pots and definitely will be back for more. Highly recommended.

My husband bought me a voucher for Christmas - what a great gift this turned out to be. I took a friend along and had a brilliant time with Richard. He was patient with our amateur efforts and generous with his knowledge and expertise. He made us a lovely lunch, and we went home happy and rather grubby! A really enjoyable course - I would thoroughly recommend it.

I did this half day course with two friends. Richard is an exceptional teacher - he keeps things clear, gives you plenty of time to learn and try things out without micromanaging, and is extremely supportive and encouraging. We have already been back a second time (with a fourth friend in tow!) and will certainly be returning again in the future. I cannot recommend this half day course highly enough.

I surprised my husband on our anniversary with a pottery day.
We had such fun and actually managed to throw a pot or two!
Richard is so easy going, kind and informative.
We loved our day! Thanks Richard at Potterydayz!

Although booked as a gift for my partner, both myself and our 14 year old son gate crashed her treat and joined in with making some pots. We all had a great time, thanks to Richard's excellent guidance. We are looking forward to being able to return again soon to Potterydayz.

Excellent experience of potting thanks to Richard. Very personal tuition, showing us step by techniques. Enabling us to create ceramics pots from the wheel and hand building. We were so pleased with what we learnt and made during the session. All topped off with a delicious homemade soup. We will definitely be booking again.
