Tamara reviewed: Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

"This was a brilliant birthday present for my partner. We had a really fun day out, learning something completely new and coming home with beautiful creations (wasn’t expecting to feel as happy with them for a first attempt). Richard was a very engaging teacher. We were total beginners but he made the course accessible as well as catering for those in the class who came with experience. We met some lovely people on the course - a really memorable day and introduction to a craft we would 100% like to continue with. Thank you Richard!"

Potterydayz responded:

" It was a pleasure to see you both on Sunday for the course. Thank you for making the trip from London and for taking the time to put up such a nice review. I hope to see you again before to long."

Shelley B reviewed: Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

"I recently attended the one day Raku Workshop. It was a thoroughly enjoyable, informative course and I came away with an appreciation of different raku techniques. Richard was very mindful of health & safety, especially considering the recent heatwave and working with a raku kiln. He gave very clear instructions and the course was adapted for potters and non-potters alike. A very good day and the group produced some excellent examples of raku pieces. I can highly recommend it!"

Potterydayz responded:

" Thanks for the review Shelly, glad you enjoyed the occasion. It certainly was a warm one. Hope to see you again sometime."

Tam reviewed: Pottery wheel throwing taster

"Absorbing 2 hours. There were 6 people on the session we joined a family of 4. Richard demonstrated and explained the basics and then let us loose with the pottery wheels. Depending on your luck/skill most of the group managed to make 3 small pots. We need to make an appointment to go back in about a month to glaze our makes then once they are fired we can return to collect them. A really good 2 hours and looking forward to seeing if our creations survive the kiln."

Potterydayz responded:

" Great to see you at Potterydayz and I am delighted that you found the session absorbing. Thank you for taking the time to add a review and I look forward to seeing you for glazing."

Anna reviewed: Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

"We had a lovely day, I recommend this course. So much information, you will need your notebook!

Graham reviewed: Pot throwing on the wheel for a Half Day Morning

"This was a great chill out experience with my son , we were lucky in that there were just the 2 of us so we had great attentive tuition and became quite proficient at creating unique one off bespoke bowls ? One negative but it did not spoil the experience I think the environment could do with a good clean up , it's a messy process but it would not take a lot to tidy up a bit more, sorry but trying to be honest in the review"

Potterydayz responded:

" Delighted you enjoyed the experience with your son. I'm pleased you found the tuition of value, particularly as you were the only visitors on that occasion and as you mention, you both settled into the process well to produce some great pieces of work during the time here. Is it time for a change of career for you- its never to late? Hope to see you again."

Sarah reviewed: Parent and child friendly pottery courses

"We would like to thank Richard for a thoroughly wonderful time. My daughter and I attended for a 3 hour workshop on throwing. Richard has a vast experience in pottery and ceramics and was able to teach us both (no easy task!) how to use the wheel to throw and make a pot! Richard is a skilled teacher and made you feel incredibly comfortable. My daughter and I were successfully able to make several pots a thing I though would not be possible! Richard also taught us other techniques for pot making during the session and we also had a chance to make a coil pot. We would highly recommend Richard and will definitely be booking again to develop our skills further. Thank you again for a lovely time."

Potterydayz responded:

" It was a pleasure to see you here at Potterydayz. thank you for taking the time to put up such a lovely review. See you all in the future for gazing the pieces."
