    I recently picked up my pieces from the intermediate wheel course and I’m blown away! Two teapots, a large platter and a couple of small vases. After just completing the beginner wheel course I really didn’t think I was ready for making teapots with lids (that fit) and working with 4kg of clay. But Isaac gave me the confidence to give it a go, and I’m so pleased I did. Thanks Isaac, Kell and the rest of the team, for your patience and making the learning environment so relaxed, fun and creative, you are all amazing. You’ve made me feel like a real part of your pottery family – thank you!

    This course was the gift I never saw coming. I was so unsure about diving into the intermediate course having finished the beginners course just a month prior (and still very hit and miss with my abilities to throw consistently).

    I’m not sure if it was the promise of being able to make my very own teapot, maybe it was the challenge of working 4kg of clay into an actual functional and potentially decorative piece… but I think it was the reassurance that having completed the beginners, I was absolutely ready to take on the challenge of the intermediate course (even if I definitely didn’t feel ready).

    I’m so glad I signed up. The anxiety I’d had in the beginners course definitely and very quickly faded into confidence. Suddenly all the tips Isaac had repeatedly been prompting previously were making sense!
    I’m hooked. If there were more intermediate level courses
    with varying focusses I would absolutely be wanting to consider them all.

    If you’ve completed the beginners course and unsure about whether or not you could manage the intermediate course… from one unsure pottery head to another… I say do it. And definitely keep up with the practise sessions.
    Isaac is there to help you throughout, so just ask for his help if and when you need it.
