Marilyn Stegmann - October 3rd
Had a lovely morning doing the throwing class, was well organised and thorough
Sophie - October 3rd
Absolutely loved the workshop. Eloise was a great teacher, she explained everything clearly and was very patient. The class size of just 5 was great as it meant we each got plenty of time with Eloise. It was the perfect way to spend a wet and grey Saturday afternoon. I would highly recommend attending a workshop here.
Rachel Bergo - August 9th
Brilliant class for beginners! Friendly and helpful tutor, wonderful workspace, and a great introduction to throwing. I definitely got the ‘bug’ and plan to go back!
Juliet - August 7th
The class was a really good introduction into throwing on the wheel. With a small group it was easy to get lots of practical hands on help which was really appreciated. The tutor was clear and patient with an adaptable approach and it was easy to ask questions. Overall I really enjoyed it and managed to make a couple of not too wonky items!
Hannah Stone - July 25th
I absolutely loved this workshop. The tutors were kind, fun and really helpful and the space is brilliant and calming - I didn't want to leave! Really proud of what we were all able to achieve in just one evening.
Amy Papa-Hughes - June 20th
Will be coming again! The class was so much fun, the facilities and workshop space was great and we really felt like we had lots of care and attention to help us go from complete novices to creating some nice pieces!
Anonymous - June 13th
Great workshop, and loads of fun. The tutor was attentive, and explained everything carefully, but also let us get on with it when we had got the hang of the basics.
Jessica Chen - June 10th
The workshop was nice. Emily was very friendly and helpful. I had a good time.
Emily Tudor-Williams - June 7th
Thank you for such a wonderful pottery throwing class- my whole family enjoyed this special birthday experience with me as it was something I had always wanted to try. It was so well explained and expertly led throughout. Thank you all. Can’t wait to pick up our pottery soon.
Shirley Butler - June 6th
Very relaxing everything explained thoroughly. Lovely professional tutor. Would recommend anyone thinking about taking this class.
Sarah Ainsworth - May 20th
I really enjoyed the wheel throwing class. The teacher was excellent - with clear instructions and guidance at the beginning and during the class. With only 4 of us there, there was time for individual help and the 3 hours felt long enough to complete some good pieces of work. I would highly recommend this class.
Hollie Copas - May 18th
Had such a great day, learned so much. The workshop is lovely and the class size of 4 is just perfect :) thanks!
Katie G - May 10th
Really lovely class learning how to throw on the wheel. Eloise was a great teacher, giving clear instructions and a patient calm manner. This along with small class sizes meant we all produced successful pots and I can't wait to see the end result once fired and finished!
Doug Stafford - April 24th
Bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday and went along to support/try. It was soooo much fun, way above expectation! Learned loads, very good teacher who was very helpful and personable. Class size of just 4 means there is plenty of 1 on 1 time to teach individually and 3 hours is a good amount of time to keep practicing and learn the neccessary skills. My girlfriend has already booked another class to go with her friend! I can't recommend highly enough!!
Dominika Sawicka-Harris - April 20th
Great fun and introduction to something different. Thank you 😊
Amanda Kendall - April 18th
Fantastic workshop with Eloise - clear instructions and very supportive. Keen to learn more now!
Nilusha - December 16th
Lovely place and a really fun class!
Alexia - December 16th
This was fantastic. A great way to spend the evening and super therapeutic. I was a total beginner (still am) but thoroughly enjoyed learning the process. Our teacher was fantastic everyone was really welcoming and friendly. I am looking forward to seeing my work fired and glazed. Would definitely recommend.
Rob - December 13th
This was a really fun and well managed class! I hadnt used a wheel since being at school, but managed to turn out 5 pieces by the end of the afternoon. The Worshop is a friendly and comfortable space, and is well worth your support! Definately going back for more and a “mystery class” too! You will love it!
geraldine - December 13th
Absolutely loved this workshop. Our excellent instructor showed us the ropes and was ever patient when helping us individually. It was very relaxing and the three hours flew by. None of our class of four had done hand throwing before yet we all made pots that we were very happy with. Covid rules were scrupulously observed throughout.
Joanna - December 5th
Fantastic as always! Really good about matching you feel safe and comfortable with the COVID restrictions.
Joanna - October 30th
Excellent for both beginners and those just wanting more practice!
Kelly - October 21st
AMAZING! Great! I have tried 3 different pottery workshops and so far this one is the best!! Great teacher, she explains very well, in detail and with patience! Also the clay is high quality, it really allows you to do thin objects rather than chunky ones. 100% recommended!
Fatima - October 19th
All I can say AMAZING
Vicky - October 19th
We had a really lovely day learning how to throw with Elouise. She was a great teacher and we had a lot of great instruction and guidance. It was a really fun activity and we’re excited to see our final pieces once they’ve been glazed and put in the kiln!
Serge - October 19th
Great session led by the team, the instruction was clear and there were a lot of opportunities to get 1-2-1 with the teacher to practice the techniques Also, the care and attention to being COVID safe was exemplary, would highly recommend
Joanna - October 19th
Eloise is a great teacher and explains each step! She is also great at coming round and helping you on the wheel! Would recommend for a beginner or someone with not many hours on the wheel!
Hannah - October 18th
We attended the Wheel Throwing workshop as total beginners and were amazed with what we managed to achieve in just a few hours! Eloise is a spectacular teacher, clear with instructions and incredibly patient. Considered us hooked - we can't wait to come back.
Janneke - October 18th
This was my first time throwing and Eloise was absolutely fantastic, giving me enough guidance to get the right technique, but also giving me the space to explore a new hobby. I can't wait to go back!
Jonah - October 11th
Learnt a lot and even came away with some good pieces as a beginner
Zoe - October 10th
Excellent! Eloise was a fab and patient teacher and I was really pleased with what I achieved!
Lea - October 6th
A fantastic class! Eloise is a really good tutor and explains things in a calm and patient manner. We all had plenty of time at our own wheel to get to grips with the basics of throwing and manage to produce some pieces for firing. I'm looking forward to attending another session soon!
Molly - October 5th
Highly recommend, the teachers were lovely and made it really easy to understand. Would even go again
Sarah - October 5th
Another wonderful class which I would highly recommend. My son and his friend really enjoyed their 3 hours of wheel throwing. The workshop was very relaxed and Eloise the teacher was brilliant at explaining everything and helping them. They both managed to get 3 pieces off the wheel. We will definitely be back.
Lucy - October 4th
Very enjoyable class with Eloise. With only four of us we got a wheel each and plenty of (needed!) attention from the class teacher, with all of us able to produce 2-3 pieces we can collect later. Would highly recommend :)
Jo - September 27th

Tanel - September 21st
It was really great fun! Ellouise was really patient and knowledgeable. The three hour workshop flew by and left us wanting to come back for more.
Sally - September 21st
A really comprehensive tutorial for throwing from base level. Eloise was a superb teacher taking us through step by step instruction at a social distance. Facility is great lots of space and well organised. Learnt a lot!!
Paper - September 20th
Having patience and support, through the initial stages of throwing, felt important for me and to have a good foundation to throw. I'm very happy to be given the time in this session to focus on this. Eloise, our teacher, had this perfect way of being there for you - being there to explain and acknowledge your personal goals in this limited time. It was definitely worth the experience. I know I will definitely be coming back!
Ann - September 7th
It's an excellent workshop. I have never thrown on a wheel, yet it's a great and playful experience. The teacher was very informative and demonstrated well how to start throwing.
Joanne - September 7th
This was such a good workshop. Sufficient tuition to get me started quickly (having never used a wheel before). Most of the workshop was spent using the wheel and having a go at making things. One to one help as required. Felt safe and very clean with all the measures put in place. Inspired me to sign up for the regular Thursday night workshop.
Connie - September 6th
I had a great time at the wheel throwing workshop. Perfect for beginners, lots of fun and a great teacher. I liked how relaxed the workshop was. We were allowed to make anything we wanted and had plenty of clay. I will definitely book on to another class in the future!!!
Frankie - September 6th
This Workshop was great! The teacher was really lovely, experienced and helpful. I would recommend to anyone who wants to give this ago!
