I booked a private lesson for myself, my partner, and his parents and we had a wonderful time. Martha was patient, instructive, and kind, and we managed to make quite a few items (cups, jars, pots...) that day, and it was really fun to think about what we would like to make and see the items come to life! We left the class feeling happy and relaxed, and excited to pick up our fired items in 2 weeks time. The finished items turned out so well and has brought all of us so much joy. Thank you Martha for such a lovely experience.

Friendly tutor and participants and freedom to make what your want. I have now been to 4 sessions since November and just booked for a four week course to learn more about techniques and glazing. With only spaces for 5 people you get a lot of help if you need it.

I attended a beginner's class last night and it was very enjoyable. It was a small group, we were shown basic techniques. People were friendly and the tutor was knowledgeable, relaxed and even made us a hot drink! I am definitely going to be booking more sessions for January and February.

It was a small space, but fit 5 comfortably. Really enjoyed my session and getting hands on with clay. I have used a wheel before but this was the first time I have used clay in this way. Definitely would recommend this class - and I will be attending again!

It was great! Martha was really helpful - with only two of us in the class it was such great value. We were able to work at our own pace and I feel I learned loads. I will definitely be going back!

Carina - April 19th
Super evening with Martha and others - the time flew by. We made two pots, using two different techniques, as well as learning about glazing and finishing, and were able to decorate the pots ready for firing. Martha is lovely, very friendly and very supportive of absolute beginners as well as those with some experience. Highly recommended.
review
Polly - April 12th
This taster session was the perfect course! It was the right amount of time and the right side. I felt I got a really good introduction to the techniques used, the types of clay, the different tools and what they can be used for as well as a taster into how to decorate the pots. It made me want to book onto a full course. Getting to make not one, but two pots was a bonus. Can't wait to pick them up!

I came with my two sons who are 7 and 3. My oldest is very proud of his Cheetah and his Eagle and he'd taken it to school for 'show and tell' and he's got some lovely feedback from his classmates. I'm quite happy with my plant pot, so is the Aloe Vera which now resides. Martha was great with the kids, definitely would go again for a family session.
