Spent 3 hours with Katherine creating a plaque with my sister. A great experience and opportunity to create something unique as well as learn new skills. Katherine was welcoming and attentive.

This was a gift voucher experience for two with Katherine. After a very clear demonstration of how to work with the clay we both had a thoroughly enjoyable and totally absorbing experience, so much so that time flew by and we booked an additional hour and a half to fine tune our bowl and plaque. Throughout the process Katherine was friendly, chatty, attentive and very patient, giving plenty of practical advice where necessary so that the end product is 99.5% your own work. In this difficult year this was the only event that was not cancelled on our social calendar and was set up to adhere to all the Covid safety measures.

My partner and I had a private bespoke workshop with Katherine at her lovely studio. We have never done ceramics before so we had no idea what to expect, but Katherine is such a professional, she put at ease straight away. Not only is Katherine an incredibly talented Ceramicist (as you can see on her website and IG/FB pages), she is also a great teacher and was very patient with us whilst we were learning the basics. She allowed our imagination to run wild and encouraged us to create whatever we wanted, whilst guiding us every step of the way. We both created something really unique and special to us and thoroughly enjoyed our Ceramics experience. I would highly recommend Katherine for a Ceramics workshop. You won't regret it!

Such a fabulous workshop. We would really recommend it. Katherine gave clear demonstrations of various techniques, was on hand to talk us through the tricky bits, and helped us not make mistakes. It was a very enjoyable morning. Katherine is super lovely and has adapted her workshop to be Covid19 compliant, without losing the freedom of creativity.

My husband and I spent a morning with Katherine after we were given a voucher for Christmas. We had a fabulous time creating our bowls and time went so quickly we paid for another hour. Katherine demonstrated and gave clear instructions and helped us along the way. We were both really happy with our creations by the end of the morning. A great morning well spent.
