I really enjoyed this class with Barbara. It was my first time on a potters wheel and I was really comfortable knowing that is was one-on-one tuition so all the teaching attention would be on myself. I knew I wouldn't take naturally to it, so this was vital! After prepping the clay, which was a really interesting addition to the class, Barbara demonstrated on the wheel how to make a bowl. She made it look easy but all the same was very confident and patient when it was my turn on the wheel. I was really impressed with what I managed to create. I like the fact Barbara was quite hands-off once I got on the wheel, she let me make my own mistakes and then taught me how to correct them. I'd definitely go back for more classes. I love Thames Side Studios as well, what an awesome atmosphere out there!
I spent 3 days at Baba ceramics and loved it , Baba was very patient and knowledgeable , an excellent teacher , I would recommend anyone who is interested in working on a pottery wheel to give it a go , being shown what to do properly made all the difference , I can’t wait to continue practicing when I get back home and when I am ready to further my knowledge on the wheel I will certainly be hoping to go back . Many thanks Baba x
