It was good instruction and no pressure. Patrick was friendly and helpful, and taught us some of the techniques used as well as telling us a little more about pottery in general. A fun few hours.

The two of us had a fantastic afternoon learning the basics of using the Potters' Wheel with Patrick. Booked the class to try something different and we had an excellent time. We're beginners but Patrick was extremely knowledgable and a great teacher so wouldn't hesitate to recommend to more serious potters. Humour clearly suitable for potters of all abilities.

Patrick is a great teacher for an introductory course on the wheel. A small intimate class seemed to be the right choice, as we got his full attention. Had a good laugh, thank you Patrick!!

Patrick was an excellent teacher and made sure we had plenty of time to work with the clay on the wheel. Our pots came out really well in the end. Great fun and highly reccomended!

Jonty - November 24th
I had a fantastic experience with Patrick, who is an excellent teacher. The small class size (only one or two people) makes it a much more personalised experience, as Patrick talks you through the whole process, which was great for a total novice like me. I would highly recommend this experience!

Joshua - October 2nd
Patrick was such an amazing instructor – giving us all the necessary basic skills to start us on our pottery journey: in our case introducing us to the wheel and training us to making our first pots on our own. Patrick is clearly a highly skilled potter and is enthusiastic to share his knowledge. The studio was perfectly kitted out for the session, with examples of work displayed, all tools available and great quality clay. I would highly recommend Patrick’s course for all – from explorer to experts.

Really enjoyed this class which I booked as a Birthday present for my girlfriend and I. We were shown each stage in detail and nothing was rushed, so we could relax and actually make some really nice pieces! Nice bright studio, would be interested in some of the other classes here. Very excited to pick the pots up in a few weeks!

Patrick gave us a good opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the potter's wheel. It wasn't just a class to play around with clay, but was jam-packed with life lessons, funny anecdotes and insightful knowledge on the history of pottery and the materials involved. Patrick was incredibly friendly and great company.
