We did a Taster class and learnt how to knead clay, spin and mould. We each moulded 2-3 items. It was so fun and so interesting! We certainly got a taste for it and are keen to come back and do some extra classes.

I took part in the Taster Class and would recommend this to anyone wanting to try pottery for the first time! Our teacher was very patient and I felt quite relaxed and comfortable. I can't wait to see my 3 pieces once fired and glazed - all included in the Taster Class, great value I think! Thank you, I had a great time :)

This class was absolutely fantastic! By the end of the taster, I was able to make 4 bowls and fell confident and comfortable on the wheel. The teacher was very hands on and realistic with his teachings.
