Susan reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"I had a wonderfully relaxing and inspiring day with Trisha. She introduced me to the pinch and coil technique and I loved her 'There is no right or wrong' approach ! The time just flew and I came away feeling pampered and nurtured, how could I not after being cooked homemade soup and cookies?! Trisha is clearly a special lady- sharing her knowledge and experience on so many subjects, not just pottery which only added to the day. I am so looking forward seeing the pieces glazed. I would recommend this experience to anyone."

Linda reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"I had booked this course originally for December but due to contact with Covid the course was rebooked for my daughter and son-in-law for March 19th, a few days after my daughter's birthday. Trisha was so obliging and without hesitation held the course open for them 3 monthss. They had a wonderful day with Trisha and a super lunch. The Little Pottery was welcoming and very well equipped. I shall look forward to going on a day's course myself with Trisha in 2023"

Alex & Ross reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"We had a really super day with Trisha and were made to feel so welcome. This course would be perfect for complete novices as well as those with experience... it felt like a luxury having a quiet day working with clay and experimenting. We enjoyed being in the new purpose built studio, surrounded by inspiration. The setting was idyllic, the teacher was brilliant, the food was delicious and we can't wait to go back for our glazing day. Highly recommend. Thank you Trisha! Alex & Ross"

"Trisha is an experienced potter, full of empathy and compassion. She guides you at your own pace and allows a heuristic approach which enhances mindfulness and creativity. She is welcoming, warm and kind. Her studio is bright and cosy and her lunchtime soups wholesome and delicious!"

Richard and Wendy Shires reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"We had a very relaxing and productive day with Trisha in her lovely studio. We learnt how to make pinch and coil pots and create vessels from slabs, and produced about 16 pieces between us. The chocolate tiffin with tea and coffee kept us going until a delicious lunch in her cosy kitchen. We are looking forward to returning in order to glaze our efforts. An excellent experience which we couldn’t fault. Highly recommended."

"I attended both the pottery making day and the glazing day...what a treat. I made 15 pieces, my Christmas shopping is sorted! But that’s not all, these two days were like going on holiday for a week, calm tranquil creativity, wonderful wholesome lunch and incredible chocolate chip cookies! Highly recommended !"

Maude Humphris reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"I absolutely loved the course: it was an experience rather than just a Workshop! A peaceful and gorgeous location, great company from the Trisha and the other attendees, amazing food and calm, considered, expert tuition. It was such a treat for me, more than I was expecting and I left feeling relaxed and also really proud of my little pots and bowls. Can’t wait for glazing day. Thanks Trisha."

Corina Walker reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"I have enjoyed two wonderful days with Trisha in her pottery shed. The first learning the methods of working with the clay and the second learning how to glaze the pieces I had made. Trisha is a brilliant potter herself and her own wonderful pieces along with her very relaxed way of teaching I found really inspiring. The whole day is a truly relaxing yet very informative experience. Topped of with great coffee, homemade cake, and a delicious lunch. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who has never worked with clay as well as to potter's looking for an inspirational experience. Thank you so much for two wonderful days Trisha and I hope to return soon."

Louise reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"A wonderful way to relax and free your mind as you first create your pieces and then return to glaze them. Trisha is very welcoming and immediately makes you feel at home and at ease in her workshop. She gently guides you through the process, making suggestions whilst letting you find your own way with the clay and glazes. There are no rules, which is liberating. Trisha is also a great host and ensures her guests are well watered and fed. Highly recommended."

Michaela reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"This was the second time I took this course, as I so enjoyed my first encounter with Trisha and the clay! The atmosphere, as before, was serene and positive, and it was lovely to spend the whole day with like-minded, kind and supportive people. It was such a relaxing experience and Trisha is really patient, helpful and the perfect guide to help you have fun with the clay. Everyone on the course had many items that they could take home and be proud of. Lunch was delicious and intimate (in Trisha’s gorgeous and cosy kitchen) and just another highlight of the day. Thank you so much Trisha! I really look forward to another day of glazing."

"This is not simply a pottery day. It is a day to shed your everyday stresses and strains and relax with clay. I highly recommend going with some friends and letting the warmth of Trisha's company wrap you up in good conversation and companionship."

"What a wonderful way to spend a day. Creativity and warmth just oozes from Trisha which put us at ease and inspired us to totally relax and enjoy the experience. It was a joy to be creative in such a beautiful place with a very interesting lady. We look forward to returning to glaze our pieces. Thank you Trisha."

Michaela Bell reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"This was just the most lovely afternoon spent with Trisha in her pottery. I hadn’t touched clay since I was very small and I immediately fell in love with it again. I can’t remember the last time I felt so relaxed and pampered. Trisha is a fabulous host (and cook!!!) and she creates a wonderfully warm and welcoming atmosphere. I am so looking forward to glazing the bits and pieces I made. HUGE thumbs up from me :)"

Janice Ketley reviewed: A relaxing day of clay making

"My workshop was a present and I didn't really know what to expect but I had such a thoroughly enjoyable day that I will return. I look forward to the glazing of my "household gods" and their benign presence in my house. They will remind me of Tricia's benign care of me; she is a nurturing mother in all respects as the homemade bread and brownies would attest. I would thoroughly recommend one of her workshops and know that the participants will be as delighted as was I."
