I bought this workshop as a birthday gift for my mother. She didn’t think she would be any good at it and therefore was very apprehensive about the session. She was pleasently surprised and we both enjoyed everything from start to finish. Our tutor Emily was so patient and helpful. Needless to say we will be back for more.

I attended a introduction to pottery workshop just before Christmas. It was a lot fun. The class size was small and intimate which meant plenty of time to get on the wheel and moulding. We were taught some great techniques for both the wheel and moulding. The teachers were patient, friendly, made the class and even let us rest our arms with a midway tea and biscuit break

It was a relaxing and fun session. I'm so glad this was gifted to me as a bday present. The session was well organised and the teachers were very patient and quick to come to your aid if they see you struggling. We were able to try a couple of pottery techniques in one session, throwing and molding which was a great use of time. The only think I would say is I wish we had more time on the throwing wheel because it was so much fun. Will definitely be signing up for the glazing session.

This was a great introduction to Pottery. I made 2 pots by moulding the clay around moulds and 1 pot on the wheel. The instruction was detailed but easy to understand and the teacher was onhand to help while I was making my pots. The teachers had real passion and enthusiasm for their work and it made it a fun experience.

Really enjoyed the workshop, thought it was a good introduction to both handmade pottery and throwing , and the ladies were lovely and helpful! giving it 4 star as the timings were a little off, only had about 25 minutes on the throwing whereas the first group had about 40+ minutes. Look forward to collecting my pieces :)

Fab, fun, knowledgeable and helpful staff! A friend and I went to the pottery class which was so good we decided to go back a few weeks later to paint our pieces. The class size was small, and there was a lovely chilled atmosphere throughout. Staff talked you through the different techniques for painting your pieces - but ultimately let you have fun with it! I hadn’t heard of obby before this experience but will definitely be recommending it, and the class, to my friends 🥳

Great time decorating the pieces we made at the previous pottery taster session! After the initial overview of different techniques, the teachers are there to support you and give you practical tips, while you have your own space and time to practice and play with creativity. We are already looking forward to the next opportunity to go back to Community 305 and make other pieces soon.

Very creative , inspiring and relaxed atmosphere, friendly people.The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because of the location-industrial zone, it was a bit scary in the darkness to get there.And one tip-have an idea what do you want to create, at least kind of idea. After all WORTH IT!

Another great session where we did the glazing of our small pots from the first session.

The mosaic taster was so interesting that I shall be joining hopefully the last three weeks of the course. There are many interesting projects to begin and there are piles of mosaics and tiles to make your imagination go wild!

Really loved this session. The workshop is calming and lots of fun stuff to look at around the walls. Working in a corporate office but being quite arty at heart, I really loved being here for a few hours. It is so calm, after the running around I do daily in my job! Very much considering doing a full course as I enjoyed it so much The girls at the workshop are all very nice and know their stuff. Great teachers, and very patient. Went through techniques such as: - pottery on the wheel - hand building with different techniques - using moulds - using stamps to pattern the clay I wll be returning to Glaze, very soon - and discuss full courses. Thanks team, Sam -

I had a great time at this workshop! I was late arriving as I'd gotten a little lost on the way. I called up and spoke to Kerry, who was really lovely and offered to come and pick me up. I was a bit nervous at first as the class had already started but Saoirse made me feel very welcome and started filling me in on what I'd missed. I made 3 pieces and had a go at throwing clay on the wheel, which as great fun! It was such a fun evening, I can't wait to go back a do a glazing session. I would thoroughly recommend this place for anyone who likes to get creative and fancies trying out pottery! I will be recommending it to friends!

The venue was wonderfully laid out displaying art for sale made by others who attend the venue. Easy parking. The teachers were lovely; patient and knowledgeable and made us feel welcomed.

Absolutely loved the course, I’ve always wanted to try a pottery class so was delighted when I was given a gift voucher for Christmas and I wasn’t disappointed. The teachers are extremely helpful and very patience. Not only do you get the opportunity to create your own clay masterpieces you get to have a go on the pottery wheel, which I found very therapeutic. I can’t wait to go back and glaze my pieces. Thank you.

I learnt how to throw on the wheel which was great fun and also how to mould the clay into any shape! The teachers were AMAZING. Caroline (I think!) was so encouraging on the wheel and explained it in a way which made sense and the Irish lady (I'm not even going to attempt to spell her name) was excellent at showing how to use the moulds and make whatever shapes we wanted. She was also hilarious! The venue was lovely and spacious and loved all of the work that was displayed around the place, including the giant whale!

The location is a little out of the way, but don't let that put you off! Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, the tutors were really friendly and approachable, full of good ideas and support. Looking forward to going back to put the finishing glaze on!

Venue was perfect, plenty of space & equipment, a fourth wheel would of meant more time to experiment. Both teachers were very patient & helped without being condescending.We learnt how to create & had fun .only criticism is a schedule for a shared amount of time on the wheel would be a good idea.

The pottery session was amazing! I had an opportunity to use pottery wheel as well as learn a little bit about hand building. It was a great experience and I can't wait to glaze my work on the next session. :)

I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Pottery Taster Class. Kerry and her team were welcoming and informative. As a local resident I can't believe it has taken me to long to find this little gem but I will definitely be back.

I really enjoyed the taster class and am already planning to go back to blaze my pieces, as well as looking to book a throwing course! The two women leading the workshop were extremely knowledgeable and very approachable. Would absolutely recommend Workshop305 and their courses!

The class was fantastic with 2.5 hours going by in a flash. The teachers were really skilled, carried tons of patience, were super friendly and gave great guidance throughput. Would thoroughly recommend anyone who want to try a bit of clay work and spinning pottery.

Friendly instructors and a very useful beginner's introduction to pottery. The session was split into throwing clay and then working with pre-cut pieces and we ended up with some nice pieces to glaze.

After initial difficulties to find the venue, the pottery taster session at Workshop 305 was a fun experience! I had never done pottery before so I was grateful for the helpful introduction and tips. We had the opportunity to do both throwing on the wheel and creating our very own pottery. The tutors were very helpful and patient at all times. I can’t wait to come back and glaze my “masterpieces”!

Great class, Workshop 305 was a great place to go and get an introduction into pottery. After a long time of wanting to do a course this was the best way for me to decide to splash out and do a full course. The girls that took the class gave good clear instructions and helped all the way. Looking forward to returning and glazing my pieces soon.

Great class - managed to get a number of hand built pieces completed and ready to be fired plus we got to try out using the pottery wheel! The teachers were very informative and friendly and helped us to build great quality pieces like mugs and bowls that we will be able to use.

The session was incredible, I learned a lot in the short time we had and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I will definitely be back for more classes. My only feedback is it would have been nice if the teacher was a bit more encouraging and engaging with the students e.g. going around and checking work and offering help, ideas etc. As I would’ve liked to take advantage of her experience and creativity a bit more. Her explanations and showing of techniques in the beginning was very informative and helpful however. Overall a lovely and unique way to spend an evening.
