I spent my birthday making mugs at Sally's workshop with a group of friends and we had the most wonderful day. It was lovely to learn new techniques of pottery-making and how to integrate natural patterns and textures into our creations. Sally is a passionate teacher, with a wealth of experience & has lots of great examples of her work to inspire your own ideas. She works with the energy of each student and is happy to help you tailor the workshop to fulfil your own tastes. (Some of us made mugs, others made a cat food bowl, snack bowl, etc. and we didn't all use the same technique.) Our workshop with Sally was so relaxing and filled with joy and laughter. We couldn't wait to go back for the second session, in which we decorated our mugs (after being fired) and when we did, we had another memorable time together. We're already planning the next visit! I highly recommend visiting Sally Mareike Ceramics for a peaceful, fun, creative and tech-free afternoon. It's time we learnt how to get our hands dirty again!

Response from Sally Mareike Ceramics:Thanks Georgie! It was so much fun with you guys. I'm so glad you all enjoyed it and that you love your beautiful pots too!
Attended this workshop as a treat to myself, and to try something new. Enjoyed every minute, and learnt lots. Very relaxing activity, in a friendly and laid back environment. Produced three items, and glazed a few weeks later. Looking forward to seeing the end result. Would recommend to anyone. Many thanks Sally.

Response from Sally Mareike Ceramics:Hi Sarah, I'm so glad you had a good time! Do get in touch if you'd like to have another workshop.
My girls really enjoy their pottery sessions. Sally is very patient, kind and creative. The girls have developed fine motor skills around sculpture as well as the technical aspects in regard to the materials and creating pottery from concept to finished piece.
They love going, and making things like fairy houses has been amazing. One of my girls made a little mug which she uses everyday at breakfast. A fantastic experience all round!! 😁
