Introductory Wheel Throwing Class

Both teachers were great.

Pauls experience showed during his demonstration and he was able to explain the process clearly.

Abbey was patient and helpful when I needed the hand positions to be shown to me again (and again) and she was able to share her expertise with me in her suggestions about how I could improve my technique.

Japanese Brushstroke Painting Class

The teacher was very experienced and brought with her a wide range of brushes, watercolours and acrylics for us to explore the medium. The class size was small enough for the teacher to give us individual attention and encouragement. All in all it was fun and very instructive

Turkish Mosaic Lamp Class

What was the teacher like? The teacher was very helpful
How was the venue? It was pretty good, accessible, parking was easy, I did some shopping after the class and got a cup of coffee. So a shopping centre was a good place
If materials were provided, did you like them? Yes everything was provided: all the mosaics available, with lots of different colours (although some pieces were not quite right and as an inexperienced person with gluey hands it got tricky sometimes). Also glue, the grout, the light bulb for the lamp and different lamp bases were included as part of the payment for attending the class.
Was the class good value for money? Indeed. It was fun and relaxing, there were people to chat to and it was a new thing for me to try. I got to take my lamp home after the class, which was also very cool. Unfortunately the light bulb provided popped as soon as I assembled the lamp and turned it on, which is a shame.
What did you do / learn? How to design and attach glass mosaic tiles onto a glass bowl to place into a light fitting.

Beginner's Kintsugi at Home

It was brilliant. I was a bit nervous about doing it online, but it was fantastic. I was so happy with Kumi-sensei, she was so friendly, welcoming and experienced. We chatted like friends while I was working on my plate. I didn't feel rushed at all, and had time to do it to the best of my ability. Thank you Kumi-sensei I am COMPLETELY delighted with my plate. It is SO much prettier for the repair. I'm chuffed <3
