The word ceramic can be traced back to the Greek term keramos, meaning “a potter” or “pottery”. Keramos in turn is related to an older Sanskrit root meaning “to burn.” (from Ceramic Studio Prague)

Thanks so much Clover, Frankie and I had such a great morning with you. It was such a relaxed and inspiring environment - you helped us so much with our pieces and we're so happy with what we made! Can't believe we managed to make so much! Can't wait to pick them up 😊 Would definitely recommend and we're already looking to plan another session with our friends.

The basics of throwing were covered and we enjoyed lots of hands-on experience on the wheel.

The 2 hour workshop was great fun and it was good that we could take away 3 items we made at the end. It would have been good to have a little bit more time to go through the techniques but she came round and helped us individually and we managed to get a lot done in the time. Great fun and very relaxing!

This workshop was so much fun! The class size was perfect, so everyone got the attention they needed. Clover was an amazing teacher. We got stuck straight in and I made so many more pieces than I expected. I'll definitely be doing more!
