Clay session
Nov 2021
We enjoyed our 2 hour sgraffito session very much and learnt a great deal. The tuition was very good and we were pleased with our bowls. It was well organised and structured.

Brilliant Gift Idea
Nov 2021
I booked a 2 hour Virgin Experience with Katherine Fortnum Ceramics for my mum for her birthday.

Once I had the details and contacted Katherine, it was super easy to book and communication was great.

We decided before hand that we were going to make hedgehogs.

When we go there we had a quick low down on the techniques we would be using and got to work. Katherine was really informative and was able to help whilst letting us take control of what we wanted to achieve.

I recommend booking more time with Katherine if you're wanting really detailed pieces as we only just finished in time but this didn't hinder our experience.

We both had so much fun and were proud of our creations.

Thank you for providing a lovely experience!

Hi Maxine, Thanks so much for leaving such a fab review that will be so informative for future workshop goers! 😊 I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your workshop, you and Jackie really did amazing jobs creating your hedgehogs! It wasn't an easy item choice to create and required some skill, and the fact you managed something complex in only a couple of hours was very impressive. I really loved the cute expressions, 2 wonderful hedgehogs that were completely different in style.1 You both should be really pleased with yourselves. 😊 I’ll be in touch soon. Kindest Regards, Katherine

Hi Jacky, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. I'm so pleased that you and Maxine enjoyed your experience, your hedgehogs were both so cute! I might have to make some little wildlife critters myself now for a bit of fun! :) I'll be in touch when they're fired and ready to collect. Best Regards, Katherine

Not the best
Oct 2021 • Friends
I think the demonstration should be outside your time for workshop. We ran out of time and was charged £12.50 for extra 15 minutes. Also, colours limited unless you pay more. Glazing also extra cost. You also have to provide your own bubble wrap when it’s ready for collection. There was pressure to pay more and increase your time. Take your own drinks as we didn’t and wasn’t offered one.

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for voicing your concerns, I am very sorry your experience wasn’t as you expected. I provide a variety of colours which are included in your workshop session cost, along with a wide array of tools and techniques for you to choose from. I do have the optional extra of additional colours and glazing should you wish to go for them, I do email this to you prior to your session. As emphasised throughout my workshop any extras are completely optional as pieces look lovely in their bisque form and in the included colour selection, it is all on personal preference of what you imagine for your created pieces. With the ongoing global pandemic of COVID19 I must adhere to the current guidelines and as a shielded person I must do my best to keep myself and my family, and my customers and their families safe. I am currently not providing drinks in order to keep everyone safe; I do let my customers know this in advance of attending. Taking into account feedback about time, I ensure throughout the class regular reminders to encourage efficient time management, allowing your pieces to be created within the workshop timescale. You can decide to extend for longer should you choose if your pieces are not complete. I will take on board your feedback and hope to see you in the near future. As a gesture of goodwill, please contact me for 15% off, of a bespoke one-to-one workshop. Kindest Regards, Katherine

Given the Christmas workshop as a gift. What a great present. The 3 hours flew by.
With Katherine’s expertise and all the materials provided 7 beautiful luminaries were completed and will no doubt be enjoyed around the home for years to come. Thank you.

I really enjoyed my personalised pottery lesson in decorative and slip techniques, I will definitely be booking some more lessons to continue my pottery journey. Looking forward to seeing my finished bowl once it has been fired and clear glazed.

Excellent workshop. Definitely recommend
Sep 2021 • Couples
Easy to find location with clear pre-workshop instructions. Felt safe and secure in post-Covid times.

Very friendly and informative throughout the workshop. Helpful when needed to make sure pots were made as best as possible.

Plenty of time management to ensure everything was finished on time.

Would definitely recommend to others, even those with limited creative ability like myself. A very enjoyable day.

Pottery flower
Sep 2021 • Friends
Katherine was very organized and knew exactly what our aim was. She divided the four hours well into demonstration and participation. She guided us but encouraged our creativity. She is keeping us informed of the glazing progress of our creations through photos. Would strongly advise allowing 4 hours to make a simple thing like a flower. It's surprising how long it takes.

Hi Judith, I just wanted to say thanks so much for leaving such a lovely review. I really appreciate it and it goes so far to small businesses like mine. Your comments will really help other workshop goers with time scale expectations, when creating ceramics and modelling time flies by like you wouldn’t believe! 😊 Warm Regards, Katherine
