We learnt the basics of ceramics and got the opportunity to experience a full range of skills. Su gùded us through from carefully structured projects in the beginning to more open endded projects, experimenting with different techniques and glazes towards the end. Su has been supportive and helpful throughout. Her knowledge and expertise is delivered with humour and kindness. I felt very supported and enjoyed the course immensely. Good tea too!

What a great introduction to ceramics. We made all sorts of pieces from jewellery and tiles to hanging mirrors and bowls. Sue was so helpful and the shed a lovely collaborative space. I would definitely recommend the course - incredible value for money! :-D

Teacher Su is a fantastic person and so giving as she will go beyond and above to give you the right foundation to learn about ceramics. The workshop is small and cosy and you can get detailed information from Su anytime you need support during the classes. You learn different techniques each week and all your items that you build throughout the course will be fired and given to you at the end. I was so happy with the results and the way the whole process went so now thinking of attending further classes of Su. If you are into pottery and would like to start with basics that’s the right place to go, I highly recommend it.

Su was an excellent ceramics teacher, she helped me and others in the class to make lovely botanical pressed bowls. The class was inspiring and rather therapeutic! I would definitely recommend
