Deirdre Conniss reviewed: Learn the Potters' Wheel in a Weekend

"I started the course as a total novice. It was an absolutely practical course. It was only a small group and we were encouraged to start using the wheel from the off. We had unlimited access to clay for second goes where we made mistakes and useful advice on how to avoid them on the next pot. Tuition was clear and easy to follow. At the end of the weekend, I felt confident using a potter's wheel to make useful stuff. The scenery, of course, is a bonus."

Powdermills Pottery responded:

" Thank you for such a lovely review Deidre!"

Mel reviewed: Learn the Potters' Wheel in a Weekend

"Spending a weekend with Joss was an amazing and genuinely life-changing experience for me. I had no experience of pottery at all, but under Joss's patient, warm and practical guidance by the end of day 2 I was really proud of what I was able to create. I really enjoyed the careful focus on technique rather than rushing to a finished but poor piece, which is what many other courses seem to do. Spending time with Joss isn't just about process - her relationship to the landscape around her from which she creates her clay infuses the experience, and being able to explore the Powder Mills at lunch time was a treat. I highly recommend this course, and am already trying to find time to do it again."

Katey Reeves reviewed: Learn the Potters' Wheel in a Weekend

"The small group was good as you could get individual attention, Joss the instructor is very knowledgeable and the demonstrations clear and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this course if you are a total beginner like me from knowing nothing at all to throwing a tea pot excellent excellent 5 out of 5 stars"

Powdermills Pottery responded:

" Thank you Katey! I am so pleased you enjoyed the course - good luck with all your future crafting. Joss x"

michael reviewed: Learn the Potters' Wheel in a Weekend

"Expect a warm welcome from an gifted potter who only fires her pots using a traditional wood fired kiln. She also mines her own clay and sources her own glazes. At the end of an intense, but relaxing, weekend course you will know all you need to know about 'proper pottery' - using a wheel, turning a cylinder (OK a mug) adding a handle, turning a bowl and then turning, or finishing its foot, or base. If that's not enough you can add in wild Dartmoor scenery and gun powder ruins. I'm happy to recommend this course. Joss isn't just an enthusiastic potter, she's a torch bearing ambassador for all things pottery and you'll begin to catch the bug - its a bit compulsive . . . although she'll tell you its only playing with mud."
