I bought this workshop as a birthday gift for my mother. She didn’t think she would be any good at it and therefore was very apprehensive about the session. She was pleasently surprised and we both enjoyed everything from start to finish. Our tutor Emily was so patient and helpful. Needless to say we will be back for more.

I attended a introduction to pottery workshop just before Christmas. It was a lot fun. The class size was small and intimate which meant plenty of time to get on the wheel and moulding. We were taught some great techniques for both the wheel and moulding. The teachers were patient, friendly, made the class and even let us rest our arms with a midway tea and biscuit break

Lovely friendly staff, very welcoming. The venue was easy to find and very interesting to look around all the good work they do there. I bought the taster session as a present for my partner and wasn't expecting to enjoy it so much myself, we are now going to book the next session to glaze the bits we made on the evening.

It was a relaxing and fun session. I'm so glad this was gifted to me as a bday present. The session was well organised and the teachers were very patient and quick to come to your aid if they see you struggling. We were able to try a couple of pottery techniques in one session, throwing and molding which was a great use of time. The only think I would say is I wish we had more time on the throwing wheel because it was so much fun. Will definitely be signing up for the glazing session.

This was a great introduction to Pottery. I made 2 pots by moulding the clay around moulds and 1 pot on the wheel. The instruction was detailed but easy to understand and the teacher was onhand to help while I was making my pots. The teachers had real passion and enthusiasm for their work and it made it a fun experience.

Really enjoyed the workshop, thought it was a good introduction to both handmade pottery and throwing , and the ladies were lovely and helpful! giving it 4 star as the timings were a little off, only had about 25 minutes on the throwing whereas the first group had about 40+ minutes. Look forward to collecting my pieces :)

Very creative , inspiring and relaxed atmosphere, friendly people.The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because of the location-industrial zone, it was a bit scary in the darkness to get there.And one tip-have an idea what do you want to create, at least kind of idea. After all WORTH IT!

Another great session where we did the glazing of our small pots from the first session. It would have been even better if we had been given a few samples beforehand as example to get some ideas on different ways how to glaze. Overall, really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it was real fun! Will be signing up for the pottery course!

The mosaic taster was so interesting that I shall be joining hopefully the last three weeks of the course. There are many interesting projects to begin and there are piles of mosaics and tiles to make your imagination go wild! Having already had a taster session for Pottery I was able to find my fired work and get it glazed. What a friendly place to have a go and the tutors are very helpful.

Really loved this session. The workshop is calming and lots of fun stuff to look at around the walls. Working in a corporate office but being quite arty at heart, I really loved being here for a few hours. It is so calm, after the running around I do daily in my job! Very much considering doing a full course as I enjoyed it so much The girls at the workshop are all very nice and know their stuff. Great teachers, and very patient. Went through techniques such as: - pottery on the wheel - hand building with different techniques - using moulds - using stamps to pattern the clay I wll be returning to Glaze, very soon - and discuss full courses. Thanks team, Sam -

Thanks for a fantastic session trying pottery for the first time. Very knowledgeable teachers helped me with my very own bowl and tea light holders. Will be booking the glazing session and in the near future will sign up to a longer course to really learn the intricacies of pottery, especially the wheel.

I had a great time at this workshop! I was late arriving as I'd gotten a little lost on the way. I called up and spoke to Kerry, who was really lovely and offered to come and pick me up. I was a bit nervous at first as the class had already started but Saoirse made me feel very welcome and started filling me in on what I'd missed. I made 3 pieces and had a go at throwing clay on the wheel, which as great fun! It was such a fun evening, I can't wait to go back a do a glazing session. I would thoroughly recommend this place for anyone who likes to get creative and fancies trying out pottery! I will be recommending it to friends!

The venue was wonderfully laid out displaying art for sale made by others who attend the venue. Easy parking. The teachers were lovely; patient and knowledgeable and made us feel welcomed. It was a birthday gift to me and we learnt a number of things during our two hour lesson including using the potters wheel. We enjoyed ourselves so much we booked onto the glazing class to decorate what we made. I highly recommend this course.

Absolutely loved the course, I’ve always wanted to try a pottery class so was delighted when I was given a gift voucher for Christmas and I wasn’t disappointed. The teachers are extremely helpful and very patience. Not only do you get the opportunity to create your own clay masterpieces you get to have a go on the pottery wheel, which I found very therapeutic. I can’t wait to go back and glaze my pieces. Thank you.

I learnt how to throw on the wheel which was great fun and also how to mould the clay into any shape! The teachers were AMAZING. Caroline (I think!) was so encouraging on the wheel and explained it in a way which made sense and the Irish lady (I'm not even going to attempt to spell her name) was excellent at showing how to use the moulds and make whatever shapes we wanted. She was also hilarious! The venue was lovely and spacious and loved all of the work that was displayed around the place, including the giant whale!

The session was incredible, I learned a lot in the short time we had and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I will definitely be back for more classes. My only feedback is it would have been nice if the teacher was a bit more encouraging and engaging with the students e.g. going around and checking work and offering help, ideas etc. As I would’ve liked to take advantage of her experience and creativity a bit more. Her explanations and showing of techniques in the beginning was very informative and helpful however. Overall a lovely and unique way to spend an evening.

the working space had a very relaxed, easy atmosphere and I felt free to be creative whilst also receiving helpful advice from the teachers. the class offered a wide array of skills to learn that gave me the opportunity to expand my ability and develop better technique. Throwing on the wheel was the highlight of the session for me, however, it was more restricting in terms of creativity, as it demands more confidence, which comes with practice. overall it was a very enjoyable experience, would recommend to all ages. it left me wanting more and I am excited to return and glaze my pots and see how they turned out.

I took my 8 year old son along to a Pottery taster session last night and we both had a wonderful time! The instructors, the space, the equipment and the tuition were all top notch and it was great to finally be able to 'throw' pottery using a wheel...most places don't seem to have that equipment. I really recommend this experience for young and old as it is was fun andwe made some lovely pottery that we'll actually be able to use as it looks so great! Thanks! Julie

The teachers are so friendly and welcoming at this workshop. It’s fantastic for beginners to get a feel for the different pottery styles! It is quite hard to find, definitely look for Weir Road on the map as there are two L&R scaffolding’s on google in the area.
