Vicky was an amazing teacher! I had such a great time learning to work with clay. We learnt lots of different techniques but also had plenty of time to work independently. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who has an interest in learning something new!

Great way to spend the weekend learning, sharing and creating with a visiting artist. Very special and lots of fun.

It's unusual and very special to be able to learn from an international visiting artist when you're not an artist yourself but rather an everyday person with no particular skills in ceramics. Felt very privileged.
