I had a brilliant Raku day with Potterydayz. Richard is a knowledgeable, passionate and kind teacher. I found the whole Raku process really exciting and fun. Richard is very generous in making 5 vases for us to glaze and fire. I also did a pottery morning which was fun and informative too. I highly recommend Richard's workshops 😊 and I'm looking forward to another Raku day on Sunday!
Response from Potterydayz:Delighted that you enjoyed the day, Many thanks for the review.
I had a fantastic day at Richards Raku course. Fully recommended, grest value for money!
Whether you're a potter or someone just wanting to try something new, this is the course for you!
Response from Potterydayz:Lovely to see you in the Raku course Amber. Thank you for the review and I hope to see you again soon.
A great couple of days, lots of fun and learnt a huge amount about raku firing. Looking forward to our next visit in few weeks. Many thanks Richard, from Tristan, Kate and Shaun.
Response from Potterydayz:Pleased you all enjoyed your pottery experience here, I look forward to seeing you for pottery wheel throwing soon. Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review.
What a great workshop to learn and try out the raku process. Perfect group size so you get to meet and chat with new people and Richard is very encouraging of helping you to create se fabulous outcomes and tellkng you about the history of raku and how some of the of the results are achieved. I have enjoyed this workshop twice now and it really is something different, the bonus being that you come away with unique pots to keep. Cannot wait to join again. THANKS
Response from Potterydayz:Many thanks for taking the time to review your experience at the raku course recently. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience and the results. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
This is always a fantastic day. I’m a repeat pottery dayz workshopper! Richard is great and we always get amazing raku results with everyone enjoying each other’s creations as much as their own. For creativity, earth, air and fire plus unpredictability, raku is a very well spent Sunday indeed. 😁
Response from Potterydayz:Huge thanks for the review Lisa- always a pleasure to have you along. See you for another one soon.
Had a smashing day with Richard! I went with my brother and sister to celebrate their birthdays and we had a lovely time learning a completely new craft. Richard was very informative, gave demonstrations for us to follow, and it was very hands on, with participation from all of us (6 on the course). We came away with 5 pots each! Thank you Richard!
Response from Potterydayz:Hi Julie
Lovely experience , relaxing ,informative and fun. Will certainly come back for other courses, many thanks , Jacqueline
Response from Potterydayz:Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review Jacqueline. It was a pleasure to have you along for some pot throwing and I look forward to seeing you at another course soon.
Fantastic day so many different types of Raku results brilliant Richard so knowledgeable thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a great day
Response from Potterydayz:It was a pleasure doing Raku with you Debbie - many thanks for the review. See you again I hope.
I booked for a 3 hour introduction to potting on the pottery wheel session. Advance communication was timely and instructions clear and helpful. Richard was really friendly and available to give lots of support and encouragement after an initial demonstration. There were only 2 of us in the studio and the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. I had a really enjoyable morning, felt I learned a lot and improved quickly, I will definitely be returning for another session.
Response from Potterydayz:thankyou for the review Clare, delighted you enjoyed the day and I look forward to seeing you again soon
What a lovely way to spend an afternoon . The session was friendly, informative and above all, fun. I don’t think I will be competing in The Pottery Throwdown any time soon, but it was a great day out. I would definitely recommend and will be back again.
Response from Potterydayz:Glad you enjoyed the afternoon Lyn, see you again soon. Best wishes Richard
Loved every minute of this course. Richard was an excellent teacher and I learned so much plus came away with some beautiful pieces.
Would highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t tried Raku before and am tempted to go back to do the day again!
Response from Potterydayz:Thank you very much for the review Nancy and contributing to an exciting day. Look forward to seeing you again.
Fantastic day with, great instructor Richard. Super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. After simple instruction which clearly outlined what was needed, we where off and glazing and slipping. With multiple firings in the day we all came away with some amazing pots. Thoughly recommended.
Response from Potterydayz:Thanks for helping make this a great day. Was a pleasure to spend time Rakuing with you. Hope to see you again in the future.
We decided to take a pottery class as a last minute thought… Came across Richards Facebook page and thought we would give it a try. From the first point of contact to leaving after our session I have to say it was nothing other than truly superb. Richard is amazing and incredibly patient. We only opted for the half day session which in reality, if we had time, I would definitely go for the full day.
We highly recommend Richard and will definitely be back. Thanks again Richard, you really made our day.
Response from Potterydayz:Lovely to meet you both, delighted you enjoyed the morning. than you very much for the generous review. See you again I hope.
We had a great time at our family workshop recently. After far too much locked-down family time we were looking for something to bring us back together. Richard’s 3 hour class did exactly that. Richard handled our two contrasting children brilliantly so that both came away feeling positive about their achievements - who knew Richard has tens of years experience in UK schools?! Reality dispelled any myths that my husband could rock up and throw a perfect teapot his first time on a wheel, (but it’s always nice to have something to work towards!) The studio was fabulously quirky and the tasks suitably pitched for our ability. A perfect solution to our need to get away from it all (just for a few hours) and simply be together. Thank you Richard!
Response from Potterydayz:Thank you for writing the review Hannah. It was a pleasure to see you all. Perhaps the teapot will come next time. see you in the near future.
I had a brilliant time with Richard.
Richard is absolutely lovely, a very friendly and inspiring teacher. I learnt lots of great techniques and thoroughly enjoyed throwing whilst discussing pottery with Richard.
I'll be back for raku lessons.
Response from Potterydayz:Well that's simply Marvelous. Many thanks Ben, a pleasure to spend time potting with you. Look forward to seeing you for some Raku soon.
This is was my second raku firing course with Potterydayz and I keep booking more. It’s a brilliant day and the results are spectacular. Richard is a great teacher but no experience needed. The finished pots make wonderful and unique gifts. (If you can part with them!). Highly recommended. 5 stars ⭐️ 😊
Response from Potterydayz:Thank you Lisa. Delighted you enjoyed the experience and I look forward to seeing you on another course soon. Richard
Plenty of hands on opportunity to decorate and fire ready made pots. A good pace of getting things done, with down time in between firings to chat and ask questions. A great introduction to firing as we'd never done anything like it before.
Response from Potterydayz:Thank you for your review Kate- a pleasure to see you and Tom all the way from Cornwall. Hope to see you again if your passing this way.
Absolutely fantastic afternoon.
As a complete novice, I expected disaster but was very proud of my little pots!
Richard was a wonderful teacher- really engaging and targeted his guidance perfectly.
I'm already trying to organise another visit!
Response from Potterydayz:Many thanks Kerry, a pleasure to help you make some pots. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Myself and my daughter had the most enjoyable morning attempting to make a bowl of sorts. Richard is an excellent teacher and so encouraging. Surprisingly I found it really relaxing and Richard has worked so hard to make it all covid safe, even building a new studio outside. We can't wait to go back to glaze our pots. My daughter ia already keen on another session.
Response from Potterydayz:I am delighted you felt comfortable and enjoyed your time here .I look forward to your return.
My mum and I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours with Richard, learning how to use a potter's wheel- neither of us had used one for years so we were both complete novices. We both managed to create three pots- not perfect but with their own rustic charm! We're looking forward to glazing our pots in the near future and then they'll take pride of place in our houses. Thank you for a lovely morning!
Response from Potterydayz:Many thanks Ellie, I am glad you and your mum enjoyed the throwing session. I look forward to helping you finish your rustic pieces.
