"Emma has a unique way of facilitating learning through demonstration and instruction, whilst allowing you to develop individuality within your own work. I thoroughly enjoy the friendly small group sessions and would recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about ceramics." - Amie B., Head Teacher
"I had a great experience on the ceramics course. Emma is an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher, creating a fun, enjoyable atmosphere to work in. I found the lessons therapeutic and easy going, yet learnt a great deal about the materials and processes required. Emma made me feel like I was actually good at something. I only wish the course was longer, it became one of the highlights of my week." - Luke Evans
"Emma is a brilliant teacher and incredibly easy to connect with. As a beginner, her private lessons have helped me to learn and more importantly understand the process of wheel throwing. If there is an aspect I am struggling with she will help me work through it until I have got it. Emma makes the lessons relaxed and enjoyable, she is constantly encouraging you and helping to build your confidence on the wheel."
- Alice Carter, artist
“Emma is the winning combination of a skilled artist and an excellent teacher. After just two one-to-one lessons I feel so much more confident on the wheel and am excited about continuing to work with her to develop new skills. Oh and she’s nice and great fun which always helps!”

"I have attended ceramics classes in the past so had a basic knowledge of clay, but the tutelage Emma is able to provide in these smaller classes really helped to push my skills."
- Lorretta Wyatt, Jewellery Designer
"Emma has such a clear and methodical way of teaching, understanding that people learn at different rates. This meant I didn't feel rushed and that I felt a lot more confident to just go for it with no fear of it not working out when I first had a go." - Abi L., 2nd year student on 3D Design and Craft BA at Brighton University
"Emma is a very approachable, friendly & helpful tutor, who has a lovely and very natural rapport with her students. She creates a positive and relaxed atmosphere, and actively encourages developing your own creativity. She has an infectious enthusiasm, which is borne out of a genuine and authentic love of her craft.” - Ele Pack, artist
" Fantastic one to one training. It taught me all the little steps you need to do to make a cylinder which is the main basic skill you'll need if you are going to progress. The teaching gave me the confidence to really get going. Emma has a teaching style that makes it fun to learn. Highly recommended. "
- Dr. Tanya Siann, Scotland
"I've been going to pottery lessons with Emma for over two years now and I never get tired of going. Emma is a very creative and supportive teacher who has given me so much confidence in my abilty. She encourages me to explore my creativity and pushes me to achieve things I woudn't have believed I was capable of. I love going to Emma's on a Saturday and enjoy the small, intimate class size and get to benefit from socializing in a relaxed environment with lovely, like-minded people. I highly recommend Emma's classes as a brilliant and therapeutic hobby. Get into it!"
- Jessica Turrell, Nanny (now earning her living as a potter)
"I have been having ceramics lessons with Emma for almost a year now and have enjoyed every second of it! She is a knowledgeable and patient teacher, she tailors her lessons to cater to her individual students, and is full of joy and laughter while she does it.I have made some wonderful creations in her classes that I am really proud of, which now take pride of place in my home, I wouldn't have been able to make these without Emma's guidance and expertise. I always hugely look forward to my lessons with Emma, and even if I'm in a foul mood at the start of a lesson I always have a smile on my face by the time I leave." - Sarah K., social worker
