Ronaldo's pottery taster session was an excellent experience, and has made me want to attend more classes. I learnt basic throwing techniques using the pottery wheel. Ronaldo was extremely personable, a great teacher - friendly, relaxed and patient. The venue was well set up, safe and provided lots of space to work comfortably. I would highly recommend his classes to anyone looking to try their hand at pottery.

This class was so much fun. Felt like I learnt so much, and could have continued with it as a hobby. Ronaldo was an amazing teacher, and it was also great to hear about his artistic practice as well. We've immediately booked another session so I can't think of any better praise than that!
Anna - June 21st
The class was so much fun! Ronaldo is passionate, knows his stuff and is a really great teacher. I'd highly recommend the class! Can't wait to see the finished the pieces!
Kuba - June 21st
We had so much fun and actually have learnt a lot about pottery! Ronaldo is fantastic! Very talented and knowledgeable - we all got inspired. Under his supervision we managed to create 3 bowls each, which is quite impressive since we are beginners. Def recommend it!

We had a pottery taster session with Ronaldo. He was friendley and made the session fun and informative. As it was our first time using the wheel, he thoroughly went through the steps guiding us along the way. Highly recommend the session to others.

I booked this taster as I had always wanted to try throwing and decided to bring mum along too. We both had such an enjoyable time learning from Ronaldo! He was patient, knowledgeable and attentive; the perfect instructor! More than this we had issues travelling to our class and he was so understanding and accommodated us with a full class ( which he didn’t have to as the fault was ours). I couldn’t recommend this taster session more highly, honestly.
Dan - May 11th
Very good class. Ronaldo is soft spoken, easy going, experienced and personable which makes for a very enjoyable, educational and productive introduction to pottery. We loved our class and may book again. Highly recommended.
Alesha Pryce - April 27th
Ronaldo is a brilliant and extremely skillful teacher! We loved the session! So much so I will be taking up pottery as a hobbie now lol! Will definitely be booking more! I can’t wait to see my finished pieces! Thanks again so much!

Matt - December 19th
Ronaldo was great! We learnt how to handle clay from the very basics to throwing a few pots! This was a very informative and super fun class in a great atmosphere! Recommend to anyone interested in pottery!!
Eddie - October 27th
The class was incredible, from start to finish. We both felt very comfortable and confident when throwing. Ronaldo's professional approach to the class allowed us to enjoy the session. We even managed to grab an aromatherapy burner. We highly recommend a class or two with Ronaldo and we look forward to joining him again and will continue to invite more of our friends. Ps. Gents take your babe here, she'll be impressed
Isaac - September 16th
We had a great experience with Ronaldo, he was very helpful, attentive and fun to talk to. He guided us through the whole process of pottery making as we were complete beginners. He is an excellent teacher and was very patient with us while we learnt the basics. The session was really fun overall and we would definitely like to go back! We would highly recommend this experience to anyone, either as a gift or just for fun.
Helen and Josh. - September 12th
Friendly and relaxed class, we made bowls and a cup each. Ronaldo put us beginners at ease, we will definitely be recommending to friends.
Ilaria - September 11th
So much fun for my first experience in pottery! Ronaldo, our Teacher, was very patient and friendly. He teach us the basic skills and we were able to make 3 bowls/vase and wait to collect then once ready. It’s a very nice class and an alternative way to spend your afternoon/day, especially if you would like to challenge yourself. The place from outside doesn’t look so inviting , but it is actually a friendly place, equipped and ready to make you feel at home! Strongly recommended, if you are not afraid to get dirty! ;)

LWe learnt the basics in 2.5 hours and Ronaldo was really encouraging and got us having plenty of goes on the wheel explaining carefully what to expect and how to work with the clay. Great morning which we all enjoyed with a range of abilities. Only one of us three had done pottery in the last few years and nine had used a wheel. Really relaxing and stimulating.

This was my first time ever doing pottery and I must say, it was such a pleasant and therapeutic experience! The teachers were so kind and patient with my friends and I. They were also very encouraging even though it was my first time. I cannot wait time go back!

Elouisa - March 8th
Ronaldo was very patient with me, this was my first time working with clay, and something I always wanted to try. Ronaldo gave a demonstration which I thought was great. Overall I felt comfortable and have decided to book a 4 week course :) Was lovely meeting him in person after watching him on the Great pottery throw down :) :)
Lauren and Joanne - February 29th
I booked this session as a gift for my mother's birthday and it really did not disappointed. Ronaldo was an excellent teacher who showed clear passion and enthusiasm for his craft. He was very patient and helpful and was always on hand to help. The studio is so lovely and was a really nice setting for the class. I would really recommend this class to both beginners and experienced potters. It really was a great experience. Thank you Ronaldo!
Kate - February 23rd
Ronaldo was very friendly and welcoming. The session went so quickly I had so much fun. I had never used a pottery wheel before and Ronaldo was so helpful, letting us make what we wanted but also giving us enough help to make something good. I would definitely recommend this workshop.
Dilys - February 21st
The class was fantastic, I learnt both hand making and wheel based techniques and was able to make a hand made vase as well as a bowl on the wheel. Ronaldo is an excellent teacher, he describes techniques carefully and with precision, he is patient and super friendly. The venue was great too, a lovely environment to spend time in

Ben - February 16th
Great Taster Session/Workshop, Ronaldo was an excellent teacher and as total beginners we managed to create 4 pieces between the 2 of us. Informative but lots of fun, highly recommended!!!
Amy + Tom - February 15th
I booked the pottery taster as a birthday present to my boyfriend - and it didn't disappoint! The session was a lot of fun. Ronaldo had an amazing balance between teaching & helping us enough that we ended the session with some nice pieces, while also letting us get lots of hands-on experience. We learnt a lot while also having a really relaxing and enjoyable time. Ronaldo is a great teacher and was very welcoming and friendly throughout. I think the session length was perfect too - we had lots of time to attempt bowls and cylinder vases, and were engaged the whole time. A great experience - I highly recommend it!
Puesan - February 8th
Really fun and relaxing class
Laura - February 5th
Great session. We learned so much, including just how complicated the skill of potting is! Ronaldo is a great teacher, patient, has a good sense of humour and we felt very relaxed and enjoyed the lesson. Looking forward to seeing our finished products! Highly recommend this class!
Adrian Lourie - January 31st
Had a great time on this pottery taster class with Ronaldo, which was bought for me as a surprise Birthday present. We were immediately hands on with the clay, building a pot and in no time at all we were throwing on the wheel. The venue was great and Ronaldo was a brilliant teacher.
Hatty - January 21st
Ronaldo is a very patient and helpful teacher, he was always on hand to help with any questions. The class was exactly what I had hoped it would be, and the venue is also great! I would definitely recommend.
Ben - January 5th
Ronaldo was an excellent teacher, really friendly and easy going. He was really good with us as total beginners, and made the class fun and entertaining. Definitely money well spent!
Phil - December 31st
This was a fantastic experience and Ronaldo was a brilliant teacher. My wife and I booked the session for our wedding anniversary and certainly had a memorable day. Right from the get go its hands on preparing the clay and then after a little practice we were making our first of two bowls each. Every step of the way Ronaldo was a clear and helpful guide and there was a definite improvement by our second bowl. For a relaxed and enjoyable experience I highly recommend this, we had zero experience but came away knowing we'd achieved something - and had great fun along the way!
Dami - December 19th
It was a good introductory session. Ronaldo was very helpful, informative and nice in his method of teaching. I would definitely recommend.
Adrian - December 13th
We had a such a great time with Ronaldo! It was fun, Interacting and messy! A good date night idea! 🙂
Gideon - December 9th
We learned to make pottery on the wheel and on moulds. The session was really fun and Ronaldo was a great teacher. We're looking forward to seeing our final pieces when they are finished.
Oliver - December 9th
The taster session was exactly what we were hoping for and more. Ronaldo was a great teacher and very relaxed, patient and helpful. We learned a variety of techniques and managed to make several items we can take home. Would highly recommend!
Alpie - November 30th
Always wanted to learn pottery again and when I found this course I was so excited. Hadn’t done pottery since a child but had the most amazing time. Ronaldo explain things so well and I was like duck to water !!! Created a lovely vase in my first class and then booked more sessions. Such a great teacher and so addictive playing with clay !! Highly recommend ronaldos classes.
MARK - November 28th
Great place and fantastic teacher! I had a great time and was able to take the little I learned on my taster day onto a full-time course. Thank you Ronaldo 👌
Nathan - November 17th
Ronaldo is an absolute class act and a master of his pottery craft. In the short period of time i managed to take away the necessary pottery skills i needed in order to kick start my business. Ronaldos teaching is very insightful and straight foward to follow. I very much enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend new pottery to starters to check kn and book a class🙂
Eloisa - November 6th
I learnt to throw on the wheel and apply slip onto my finished pieces. Had a great time learning and being taught by Ronaldo. He's a really great teacher, patient and encouraging. Will definitely continue my ceramics journey!
Gina - November 4th
Great class! Loads of fun even though I am a beginner I think it would be perfect for all levels. Definitely going to the next one
RRachel - October 27th
Me and my friends did a workshop with Ronaldo. It was a fantastic and fun experience! We learnt a lot in just a couple hours. Ronaldo is a lovely and paiten tutor, most definitely will be booking another session ☺
