We had such a great time at this class. Candy was friendly and attentive and gave us the freedom to make what we wanted. We didn't feel at all rushed, although would happily have stayed another hour to make more! Such great value and really looking forward to picking up our finished pieces. Would definitely go again and have already recommended to lots of friends!

My best friend and I signed up to Candy's signature boob pottery class. We were 8 beautiful women having a go at making boobs we have or would like to have. I've never had so much fun and laughs while doing something so different and creative. Highly recommend.

We had so much fun at the workshop! In a way it had a gals sleepover kind of feel - sweets, popcorn, music, giggles. Perfect activity to bring a friend to whether youre creatively inclined or not. Candy was an awesome host - knows her stuff and on hand for advice but not overbearing. Also a great message about female body positivity. Highly recommended.

Candy was great - really informative and welcoming. She explained everything clearly and we had everything we needed, including snacks! I really loved the workshop and I can't wait to see my little boob pot when she's back from the kiln. Would definitely recommend. Also the venue was adorable ☺️ Thanks Candy!

I learnt how to make different style pots, and tailored them to my preference! I learnt the basic steps, and then learnt various techniques such as shape and design. Candy was informative, kind and helpful. She made me feel at ease and the 1:1 class was definitely helpful. The venue was quirky and cosy, we absolutely loved the area we was in! I would definitely recommend to any friends / family and had great fun!

Candy is a great teacher. Very patient with me as am a novice potter. I had lots of fun exploring the techniques of handling the clay and working it on the potter's wheel. Would more private lessons her studio. Looking forward in collecting my jug and dish that I made.

Did Candy’s pottery taster for 2 as a birthday present to my parter, it was so fun!! She’s a great teacher, really friendly and made the whole experience really enjoyable. We collected our fired and glazed pots today and they look great, couldn’t recommend this enough.

I booked myself and a friend a private pottery class and it was everything we hoped for and more. Candy is a great teacher, she was very patient and considerate. When one method wasn’t working for us, she gave us other options and allowed us to keep trying until we got there. while she taught my friend first how to use the potters wheel, I made items with clay by hand. This allowed for more one on one time with Candy which was exactly what you need when learning a new skill. We thoroughly enjoyed our lesson and I’m definitely going to book another :)

The class was great. We booked this as an anniversary present for ourselves and it was really good fun. The space is a lovely little workshop and Candy was very friendly and informative. We were complete beginners and a little nervous but candy put us at ease and taught us how to use a pottery wheel. It's a lot to cover in 2 hours but we managed to make three pieces each in that time. I would definitely recommend this class. Candy is lovely, the class is great and the venue was nice too.

We had a great time learning some pottery basics and Candy was a knowledgeable and patient teacher! Coming away with at least 3 items each (if the firing goes well!) it was great value and I highly recommend it, especially as it was pretty much 1 on 1 teaching. Also the venue is cool with a quirky secondhand shop to explore downstairs. Thanks Candy!

We had the most brilliant time with Candy, who put us at ease straight away. She explained and demonstrated the techniques really well, so that we - as complete novices - ended up with six credible pots between us! The studio is easy-to-find and the perfect size for the session. We'd definitely recommend, and are even planning to try another of Candy's classes soon.

We both had an amazing experience above and beyond our expectations! Candy has the patience of a saint, and the character to match. Managed to make several pieces while learning it’s not quite as easy as it looks, but with the right teacher, you can pick the basics up in no time. I would highly recommend this class, as it’s not what you’re thinking a pottery class will be. Candy creates a fun, informative environment and I can’t rate her highly enough!

Amazing day with Candy. She was very helpful and made our experience even more memorable with her vast knowledge. Not only did we get our hands dirty and create our own unique items but we also got the opportunity to decorate them. My wife managed to make a cake stand and a bowl, i on the other hand manged to make a miniature mug and something that resembled a gravy boat. Great day - keep an eye out for the Candy's signature items in the workshop, perhaps next time I might try replicate them.

Me and my friend booked a pottery class with Candy. It was fun! Candy is friendly and helped us through the process. The only downside is that you cant carve your name underneath the ceramic. The place is a cosy little rooftop, the steps to make your pottery are clear and Candy help you through it, the stairs to reach are a bit steep so watch out, the shop underneath it’s lovely. I recommend the experience.

We had an amazing time in our private pottery class with Candy. Candy was an excellent teacher and it felt like a really personal experience. It was our first time throwing down the clay and Candy was really patient and taught us lots of great techniques and tips to get us on our way. By the end, we were able to create some some lovely pieces. I'd recommend Candy to everyone!

My partner and I absolutely loved our class with Candy! She kindly accommodated us in her new studio at the last minute. Candy is very patient and explains the process very well. We can’t wait to receive our finished pieces in a few weeks time once they’ve been fired and glazed. We made mugs, bowls and pots. We wish we could have had more time as it was so enjoyable!
