Mandisa was absolutely great and she ran a fantastic workshop! We had an amazing session and we will absolutely be back for more!

Really great experience. I was a beginner and Mandisa was incredibly kind and patient with me. She helped me make two pieces, a bowl and a plate, intervened when necessary but was also careful not to alter my original idea or construction. She has an incredible energy and great talent, which she finds a way of sharing with the rest of the class. I recommend this class to anyone who wants a chill (and relaxingly productive!) Sunday afternoon.

'Stuff and Fings' was born out of Mandisa's love of tinkering with, well, 'Stuff and Fings'. Playing with textures and shapes, art and design, experimentation and fun are at the core of all things, 'Stuff and Fings'.

Having studied 'Surface Pattern Design' at Jacob Kramer college in Leeds, clay was never a medium she'd ever seriously considered, until recently. As a mother (to a young child), looking for something new to get her teeth into and to fit around the busy school schedule. She absolutely fell in love with clay on her first pottery taster workshop.

Ever since…

This was a great introduction into the world of clay work. Mandisa was great and her knowledgeable and friendly approach to teaching really made it fun. I recently picked up the piece I made and was very happy with it! I'll definitely be back again.
Robin - June 28th
Great introduction session, I'm in love with ceramic now!
RIKO - June 28th
Super fun! Super crafty, Mandisa was extremely friendly and would love to come back for longer courses
RS - June 28th
Mandisa was fabulous and very patient with all our requests. My friend and I each had 2 very different things we wanted to make and gave us even more clay when we run out of it. It was generally a very friendly environment having a conversation with Mandisa about her work, techniques and workshops. It was an inspiring and definitely crafty session and made me want to come back for sure.

My husband and I loved this class! The class was really enjoyable, super hands on which we liked and the teacher gave us great guidance and advice throughout- would 100% recommend!
Samantha - August 19th
Very relaxing time and was guided through various techniques clearly and patiently. Would definitely recommend and go myself again.
Amy - February 4th
I really enjoyed this class. Mandisa was very welcoming and helpful without being overbearing. I liked the loose structure that allowed one to play. There was still someone experienced there to instruct when necessary.
Katie - January 27th
Such a great way to spend a Sunday evening, which for me can often be filled with Monday anxiety and boring work prep. Mandisa was welcoming, easy-going and clearly super talented. She whizzed through a really helpful demo before letting us get on with our own work. She had loads of tips, ideas and suggestions - and was really great at explaining the processes. The hand building was challenging but very therapeutic and I cant recommend it enough to anyone wanting to give clay work a go. Thanks so much Mandisa! Katie x
India - January 26th
Great workshop with a lovely teacher. Learned the basic techniques for hand building with the freedom to make whatever you fancy. Thanks!
Miranda - November 20th
Mandisa was lovely, helpful and the class was so much fun! Can't wait to pick our pieces up!
Kate - October 8th
Absolutely brilliant time was had by all 6 of us during this class. Mindisa was a fab teacher and also lovely to spend our Sunday afternoon with. Mindisa was super knowledgeable and very patient with us as well! The 6 of us chose the class (as complete beginners!) for a chilled sunday afternoon experimenting and learning a new skill. However, I'd say that the class would be suitable for all levels of experience and whatever the occasion, whether it be a birthday celebration, Hen party, or to acquire a new/ more advanced skill.
Daisy - July 1st
We did this for a company social and had a great time! We were all beginners but Mandisa walked us through and helped with everything.
Ella - June 25th
This workshop was so much fun! A big group of us came and all had a great time - it was really well organised, we got given a tonne of help and she put up with us asking a million questions. Loved it x
Gigi - May 23rd
We absolutely loved this class and would totally recommend! Mandisa was great, she gave us a little demo and instruction but mostly let us get on with it, but was always around to help and give us some handy tips. I found the booking process on here to be a bit confusing but Mandisa’s communication is great and things were sorted quickly. We can’t wait to see how our work turns out! Thanks so much for this!
