Latest Course reviews
I have just completed Matthew's One Day Throwing Course and I can't praise the day enough! I have never thrown a pot before and didn't know if I would be able to do it, so felt a little nervous. No need! Matthew immediately put me at ease, very easy going and chatty so before you know it, you've thrown a pot with confidence. Matthew is a superb teacher and works at your own pace, giving clear and encouraging instruction all the while. I finished the day with some pots that I am so proud of and wanting to continue to learn more. It's great that there is flexibility in booking the course that suits me. If you're thinking about it...do it!
What a fabulous way to spend a day! Mathew is an exceptional teacher, with seemingly limitless reserves of patience and humour. My day with him at the potters wheel was completely absorbing and very productive. Thank you!!!
