    5-day course: A fantastic experience
    The 5-day course with Lee and Kathy definitely deserves 5 out of 5 stars. Lee is an excellent instructor and I'm sure you would have to go a long way to find anyone better to teach a pottery course, both in terms of experience and qualifications. Lee's in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm about the history of local potteries and those that worked in them added lots of extra interest. The area is beautiful and offers many different activities and destinations for the afternoons. We went as absolute beginners and left feeling very keen to continue. It was a fantastic experience.

    5 day beginner course
    What a positive experience. Having previously done a half day course with Lee it was great to consolidate what I'd learnt over five days. I had a great sense of achievement by the end of the week. Am hoping to repeat the course to build my confidence to go it alone! Thank you Lee and Cathy. Catherine

    A fantastic crafty morning!
    My daughter and I have just come back from a half day pottery course here. We loved it! Fantastic teaching and really enjoyable. We are complete beginners and came away inspired and googling pottery wheels!

An absolute gem of a crafting experience. We did the half day course with Lee and Cathy as complete beginners, we loved it. Great tuition, relaxed atmosphere, and you are hands on straight away. So good we talked all the way home about where we could put a potters wheel and a kiln! Highly recommended.

We went as a joint birthday present from family. Complete novices but soon made at home by Lee. Educational, informative and practical - a great half day filled with fun, a little competition as to who could produce the best pot and very calming.

Looking forward now to seeing the outcome of our efforts in eight weeks time when they are fired and glazed.

Great half day session with my daughter. The experience is brilliant from start to finish. Even if you never tried throwing a pot before you will be really pleased with what you produce by the end of the session due to the excellent teaching from Lee

Did a half day beginners course and thought it was fantastic. Lee (and his lovely Mum) are gifted teachers, making it a thoroughly fun learning experience.

I attended a one day pottery course on my own. There were two other lovely women who also took part.
What a treat. Lee and his Mum Cathy were really good at explaining and teaching throwing. The photo shows my attempts.
We then made a moulded bowl.
Can’t wait to pick up my fired and glazed bowls.
Highly recommended. It would be a great present for anyone.

Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in beautiful countryside. Lee and Cathy make welcoming and professional teachers. Can’t believe I made 8 pots from never having thrown clay before I’m just a few hours. A great afternoon. I’ll be back. Thank you.
