My brother and I took our Mum for a potter's wheel experience last year, and she enjoyed it so much that we decided to do it again this year! Our first time had been fantastic, and so we knew what to expect - but this time it was even better. I won't say that our skills learned from the first time kicked in, but certainly our results were just that little more refined and pleasing. Probably mainly down to Rachel's patience and skill - which is boundless - but we came away really pleased with the experience, and now looking forward to seeing the final fired items in a couple of week's time. Can recommend highly enough for a slightly different way to spend an afternoon.

Had a BRILLIANT morning with the super talented Rachel Byass...our first go on a potter’s wheel. We were tutored & guided every step of the way. Rachel has lots of stories to tell whilst patiently directing you to create a mini masterpiece - she makes sure any errors are repaired swiftly to ensure a lovely piece can be achieved. We didn’t have a romantic “Ghost” moment but we did have a great time. Would highly recommend.

We had a brilliant evening trying the potters wheel and painting ready made pots. With a glorious afternoon tea and much laughter, Rachel made us seven 'older' golfing ladies very, very welcome. We're looking forward to another visit later in the year.

Had a fantastic afternoon which we'd arranged for my Mum's birthday as something she could do together with myself and my brother as a bit of fun. I hoped it would be good, but it certainly exceeded my expectations! Rachel is not only a talented potter, but also very experienced at getting the most out of a total beginner, and is particularly adept at salvaging a result from any disaster along the way! We all came away with three really quite reasonable pots - and it didn't look that promising at some points during the afternoon! In the end we had a great time, and learned something too. I really can't recommend this highly enough!
