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

Response from Potterydayz:

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.

I had great day on Richard's Raku course. I loved getting involved in all aspects of the process, it was very hands on. I was suprised by how many quality pots we came away with, and they all turned out beautifully. I cant wait to book into another course.

Response from Potterydayz:

Many thanks Katie, delighted you had a good day. Look forward to seeing you on another course soon.

We had a lovely day, I recommend this course. So much information, you will need your notebook! It was a really hands on and interesting day with everything organised and once the kiln was up to temperature we ran through a list of raku techniques with hardly time for lunch… thank you so much for your kind encouragement and for sharing at least some of your secrets.

Response from Potterydayz:

I am glad you enjoyed the day, it was a pleasure to Raku with you and you are most welcome- I hope to see you again.

Myself and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the day. Richard was very good at explaining the process of throwing pots in simple steps. My daughter picked it up really quickly, I on other hand needed a lot more practice, but it was a great experience.

Response from Potterydayz:

Really glad you both enjoyed the experience here at Potterydayz. Thank you for the review- see you in the future perhaps.

We had a lovely time making pots as a Christmas present. My husband was really good at it and made some great pots. I was not so good but Richard was patient with me and generous with the clay and I had a number of attempts and ended up with some half decent pots. Looking forward to going back and painting them.

Response from Potterydayz:

Delighted you enjoyed your visit. See you for glazing soon.

I have attended several of Richard's courses working on throwing. Richard is a great instructor and clearly knows his craft.
Whether you are just starting out in pottery or looking to improve in a certain technique I couldn't recommend his course more!

Response from Potterydayz:

I am delighted that you have gained from your experience at Potterydayz, it has been a pleasure. Thankyou for the review.

We had a great morning learning the fine art of using a pottery wheel. It looked so easy when Richard did it! The time flew by and Richard was great at supporting us and showing us how it should be done.
We both managed three pots each and are really looking forward to glazing them soon. A really enjoyable couple of hours. Thank you.

Response from Potterydayz:

Many thanks for your review Sarah and Julie- I look forward to your return.

We spent two hours with Richard for the pottery taster session. It was a brilliant experience from start to finish.

Richard is great at not only demonstrating but helping as you start to learn the process. The perfect balance of instruction and letting us loose to have a lot of fun.

We managed to make five pots between us with a couple of disastrous attempts along the way.

We’re planning on taking some family members for Christmas already.

Response from Potterydayz:

Many thanks for the review and Im happy thst you enjoyed your experience at Potterydayz. See you again soon I hope.

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.
See you again soon

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

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!
