What a fantastic workshop! Two friends and I went to the Elephant & Castle workshop and spent a few hours with Nam Tran. He was a great teacher and we had a very enjoyable day. He made the session fun while also talking us through a little of the history of Raku firing. Would definitely recommend booking this.

This was my first time experiencing Raku Pottery - I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and am pleased with the outcome of the pots. It was interesting hearing about the history of Raku; Nam is brilliant in sharing his knowledge about ceramics and a great host. I will definitely be signing up for more pottery workshops at Art in the Park.

Really relaxing and interesting class. Were given two pots to glaze and decorate however we liked using multiple colours to choose from. We then learnt how to fire the pots which was so fun. Nam was a patient teacher :)

100% recommended! We had such an awesome time at the raku workshop! Nam was super helpful, the glaze options were great, and the work space is lovely. Most of our group had no pottery experience and now everyone is keen to take it up! Huge thanks to Nam for a brilliant morning (and for letting us pick his brain about all things ceramics!)

I bought this as a birthday present for my sister and it was perfect! The class was well paced and so much fun. Nam was an awesome teacher who explained the magic of raku super clearly, and our two little pots came out beautifully. Highly recommend !
