Testimonials

Michael

"What I get out of pottery is a chance to express myself in a fun and rewarding way. From Wendy I learn so many new and varied techniques that I can take forward from project to project to create whatever I can think of. Everyone is really friendly; definitely one of the highlights of my week!"

Vanessa

"For me pottery is a two hour escape from my normal life where I can be creative and learn some new skills. The two hours go so quickly and because its so engrossing its also very relaxing enabling me to switch off from daily life and just focus on what I'm making. Its also a chance to meet new people and enjoy a relaxed and friendly environment. In short, I love it!"

Emma

"I look forward to pottery because it gives me the opportunity and time to concentrate on something outside of daily concerns. Handling the clay is relaxing and restorative. The sessions also provide a supportive environment to develop creativity and challenge personal perceptions of skills and abilities."

Auriane

"What I enjoy about pottery is that it's a versatile, relaxing and non-competitive hobby. Building with clay is accessible to anyone and the process brings about concrete satisfaction for it allows free running exploitation of personal creativity."
