Really fun couple of evenings, very relaxed and I’ll definitely be going back!
Carmen - June 24th
Run by lovely, friendly people in a colourful studio. If you're looking for a more formal pottery education, I wouldn't recommend it. This is more of a laid back fun Sunday afternoon activity, great for groups of friends and hen parties, etc.
Sara - May 30th
I had a great time doing this workshop, totally disconnected from the rest of the world and focused on my pieces that hopefully will come out nice from the kiln!

Luisa was a great teacher - super welcoming and clear at giving instructions. Really enjoyed the classes! Thanks! :)
Isabelle - January 30th
I loved the class. Lucia was a great teacher - giving us space to experiment but always on hand if we had a question. It was very relaxing to be creative and work with my hands. I was excited to return to the following 2 sessions as the atmosphere in the class was really friendly.
Jennifer - August 21st
Excellent workshop. Really creative and friendly people.
Clodagh - July 15th
Really fun, 3-part pinch pot workshop. The instructors were knowledgeable, welcoming and very helpful. The class size was really small, just four of us, so we could have all the help we needed. It was very relaxing and nice to get a chance to be creative. We made four different pots and then decorated them however we liked.
Solmaz - July 11th
Great experience. loved the environment and staff were really helpful .
Chloë - April 25th
It was really fun and chilled! Probably best to go with a friend if you want to chat as it wasn’t that sociable but it was good to be able to switch off.
Sarah - February 7th
I've only been to the first of the three session sand so far so good. The process is quite therapeutic and Diana is very sweet and helpful. She has a warm and friendly energy that puts everyone at ease. The studio itself is cosy and nice and lots of chatting and laughing going on.
Rebecca - January 3rd
I loved spending my evenings at M.Y.O over this 3 part course. It was great to learn a new skill and I am really happy with my finished pieces. They were also very helpful when I wasn't able to make a session due to work commitments. Thanks Diana and Sam!
Clemency - November 20th
Great thing to do with friends to unwind and get a bit creative! Sam and Diana are very welcoming and helpful. Love my pinch pots :)
