Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

My husband and I had a fabulous day with Richard, learning Raku. We had dabbled before but with no success.
The results we got on the day were great and it has given us the confidence to do it again at home. The whole day including the lunch was fantastic.

Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

Best birthday present ever!
A wonderful experience, I enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life. Relaxing but extremely exciting and inspiring day. Richard is a brilliant, informative encouraging tutor.
Lovely lunch provided by Richard's wife.
I was so so happy with the results of my pieces. I learnt loads and I went home buzzing thinking about when I can come back and do more! Recommended to all my friends, money well spent.
Thank you very much.

Raku - learn the exciting art of rapid Japanese glaze firing

Couldn't have been happier with my raku firing day. I took my mum as a birthday present and we had a wonderful day. We managed to get four firings in one day and a great bunch of people to enjoy it with. Jackie made a delicious lunch and Richard was absolutely brilliant. We both came away with three beautiful pots and both thought it was exceptional value for money.

Thank you for a great day.

This was our second course with Richard and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Glazed our previous pots ready for firing and threw several new ones. Richard is a very talented potter and his home made soup is excellent! Would definitely recommend!

What a treat! A beautiful spring day spent with my daughter (26) and son (24) at Potterydayz. We had a very creative, relaxing, fun day together. Richard was a great teacher - patient and calm! The vegan soup was an added kindness. Would highly recommend this course!

I booked this as something new to try as I had always wanted to do it. I was apprehensive at first about whether or not I’d be any good! But I turned out to thoroughly enjoy it and had a great time learning different ways of pottery.

I booked this as a surprise day out for my partner Quentin and myself. We had a really lovely day. Richard the potter is an expert pottery teacher and we were really pleased with the pots we made. I'd definitely recommend if you fancy a fun, creative, relaxing day out.
The home made soup was delicious too!

Just had the most enjoyable day at potterydayz. My friends and I were all complete beginners but by the end of the day we had proudly achieved thrown pots on the wheel as well as learning how to coil clay into hand built pots. Richard was welcoming and provided a relaxed teaching approach putting us at ease and guiding us through every step of the process. Would absolutely recommend this experience! Thank you Richard

Pot throwing top up or taster throwing day

The session was booked as a surprise for my wife's birthday, something we could both do together. The experience exceed my expectations. 

Richard was very knowledgeable and a good teacher plus a nice chap into the bargain. All of which meant we really enjoyed the afternoon.

Richard was very welcoming and made us feel at ease. We enjoyed the opportunity to hand build and also try throwing pots on the wheel. Richard was patient and took time to explain, demonstrate and encouraged our own creative talents. We're clearly not naturals but learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed our day. A fantastic opportunity not to be missed!

Such fun! Really enjoyed our day. My daughter and I were engrossed from beginning to end, and found the whole day so interesting and relaxing. And we devoured the delicious soup and bread too! Richard is very patient and a great teacher - he clearly loves what he does and it shows. Would highly recommend for couples, friends or parents with a creative child. Would love to return, to throw some more!

The experience with Richard was really really great! It was a calm and tranquil atmosphere, very informal and explorative. Richard gives clear and concise directions, yet still allows you to be creative. He’s very friendly and approachable. We learnt two pottery techniques and it just made us want to go back. Will definitely recommend to others, and go back to do it myself!! The experience would be a perfect gift for others!! The soup was also fabulous!

Had a great day with six of us in Richard's studio. Lots of fun and we all came out enthused with some pretty decent attempts on the wheel - even if 5 /6 of us were left handed ( a bit of a challenge on a right handed wheel). Richard was very calm and patient with us all and has a great depth of knowledge. Highly recommended and can't wait to see the fired results.

I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Richard learning how to throw and hand building. Richard was an excellent teacher. He was patient and catered the lesson to my personal needs and aims. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn a new skill, or build on their existing skills. Richard made the experience memorable and enjoyable, he has inspired me to create more pots and further my new skill. Thank you for a great day!

Had a wonderful day potting, which sped by, building a coil pot along with the opportunity to throw some pots on the wheel. Richard was informative, patient, supportive and interesting to talk to. He provided lots of tea and a lovely lunch. Highly recommend as a gift for someone or to treat yourself to something different.

Richard created a relaxed environment where we all felt comfortable to do our own thing and enjoy the day. It was great fun and I made a vase and 2 dishes. Definitely recommend giving it a try.
