We had an amazing time in our private pottery class with Candy. Candy was an excellent teacher and it felt like a really personal experience. It was our first time throwing down the clay and Candy was really patient and taught us lots of great techniques and tips to get us on our way. By the end, we were able to create some some lovely pieces. I'd recommend Candy to everyone!

Me and my friend booked a pottery class with Candy. It was fun! Candy is friendly and helped us through the process. The only downside is that you cant carve your name underneath the ceramic. The place is a cosy little rooftop, the steps to make your pottery are clear and Candy help you through it, the stairs to reach are a bit steep so watch out, the shop underneath it’s lovely. I recommend the experience.

After finishing her degree in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, Candy was keen to pass on her learnt skills to others. Around teaching, Candy also makes her own work which is focused on the female form and explores representing this in the medium of clay. Candy has worked with a wide range of students from young children, people with learning disabilities, mature students and people living with dementia.

We had such a great time at this class. Candy was friendly and attentive and gave us the freedom to make what we wanted. We didn't feel at all rushed, although would happily have stayed another hour to make more! Such great value and really looking forward to picking up our finished pieces. Would definitely go again and have already recommended to lots of friends!

Amazing day with Candy. She was very helpful and made our experience even more memorable with her vast knowledge. Not only did we get our hands dirty and create our own unique items but we also got the opportunity to decorate them. My wife managed to make a cake stand and a bowl, i on the other hand manged to make a miniature mug and something that resembled a gravy boat. Great day - keep an eye out for the Candy's signature items in the workshop, perhaps next time I might try replicate them.

We both had an amazing experience above and beyond our expectations! Candy has the patience of a saint, and the character to match. Managed to make several pieces while learning it’s not quite as easy as it looks, but with the right teacher, you can pick the basics up in no time. I would highly recommend this class, as it’s not what you’re thinking a pottery class will be. Candy creates a fun, informative environment and I can’t rate her highly enough!

We had the most brilliant time with Candy, who put us at ease straight away. She explained and demonstrated the techniques really well, so that we - as complete novices - ended up with six credible pots between us! The studio is easy-to-find and the perfect size for the session. We'd definitely recommend, and are even planning to try another of Candy's classes soon.

We had a great time learning some pottery basics and Candy was a knowledgeable and patient teacher! Coming away with at least 3 items each (if the firing goes well!) it was great value and I highly recommend it, especially as it was pretty much 1 on 1 teaching. Also the venue is cool with a quirky secondhand shop to explore downstairs. Thanks Candy!

The class was great. We booked this as an anniversary present for ourselves and it was really good fun. The space is a lovely little workshop and Candy was very friendly and informative. We were complete beginners and a little nervous but candy put us at ease and taught us how to use a pottery wheel. It's a lot to cover in 2 hours but we managed to make three pieces each in that time. I would definitely recommend this class. Candy is lovely, the class is great and the venue was nice too.

I booked myself and a friend a private pottery class and it was everything we hoped for and more. Candy is a great teacher, she was very patient and considerate. When one method wasn’t working for us, she gave us other options and allowed us to keep trying until we got there. while she taught my friend first how to use the potters wheel, I made items with clay by hand. This allowed for more one on one time with Candy which was exactly what you need when learning a new skill. We thoroughly enjoyed our lesson and I’m definitely going to book another :)
