“Just to let you know that I had a great time as a guest tutor on your course and to say again how impressed I am with the way you manage both the students and their varying skills and needs.” Mark Griffiths, guest demonstrator & tutor on 5-Day Big-Improvers 2012
“A very stimulating course. Excellent facilities and very generous provision of materials. Yummy lunches. There was a really good balance allowing me to explore the materials myself and ask for help whenever. The tutors worked hard all the time.” 5-day ‘Porcelain’, with Patia Davis & Matt Blakely
“I achieved much, much more from the course than I expected. A Good balance of demonstration, everything was great, I loved the clay especially. Fantastic value for money!” 3-day ‘Improvers’, with Jeremy Steward
“Home from fantastic Improvers course – thanks Jeremy, had a brill time. Back in 3 weeks for Patia’s porcelain. Great food, great teaching, great company in lovely surroundings. Perfect!
“Just finished an inspiring introduction to wheel throwing with Jeremy Steward, assisted by Jack Welbourne. Thank you both for all your encouragement which helped me enormously through the bumpy early stages of the ‘complete beginner’s process. I am now 2 bowls and 2 mugs better off!
“Studios, facilities and materials are excellent. To be able to see another potter’s own unique approach to handling and throwing clay, (in addition to that of the main tutor) is an advantage and an inspiration, and an added attraction to the course. As in this case, Matt was excellent and shed some much needed light on the complexities of glaze formulation and testing. His explanations were clear and interesting. 5-day ‘Porcelain’, with Patia Davis & Matt Blakely
