I have always wanted to take learn pottery, so I was so happy to find this pottery course on Obby. And little to say, the venue, teacher and learning experience were absolutely incredible. Thanks Keery, thanks Obby. I can't recommend it more!

I decided to take a pottery course instead of a one off class because I actually wanted to make something myself from start to finish - and it was deffo the right choice. I have some amazing bowls to show off at home and the kids love it! Thanks Obby :)

Great course and experience! I would definately recommend it! Kerry is very patient and providing advice the whole time. The number of students (4-5 at my course) was great to give you the attention you need as a beginner!

Kerry was a great teacher, very patient and able to explain things from different angles. The structure of the course was great, allowing for progression and further development over the four classes. A small class meant plenty of time for one on one. I’m sad it’s over!

Kerry's classes were an absolute pleasure. Her bright studio is the perfect place to throw your first pot. Great structure to each lesson and having 5 students per class means you get loads of attention, and Kerry is always on hand to give you help where you need it. I finished the course with some mugs and bowls I'm really proud of and that feeling is priceless. Highly recommend you take this class, the only thing you'll regret is not trying it sooner!
