Pottery is playing with clay and I'm passionate about this, I run my own ceramics business. I have a background in creation education and communication, I grew up in a creative household both parents artists and went on to love the process of making too. I've also taught science and geography in both schools and university and so feel comfortable with communication.

Her skal du være

We will be in my ceramics studio, cosy often warmed by the kiln, a converted fisherman's net loft located in the heart of Porthleven, just off the high street.

Brilliant experience, really friendly and relaxed. All stages well explained and freedom to have a go yourself without any pressure of ruining anything! Good general conversations throughout too, with some cheeky biscuits and drinks thrown in! Can’t wait to receive our pots in the post!

Thank you Jake for a wonderful pottery class, which had just the right balance of instruction and independent practice. You have stimulated my interest in pottery which I hope to explore.

We absolutely loved having a go at the pottery wheel! Jake makes you feel relaxed and comfortable before you take on the wheel and then shows you what to do before letting you have a crack on your own. Brilliant experience and we’ll be having another go when we can!

Brilliant experience. First time for both of us throwing on the wheel but Jake explained the steps clearly and gave brilliant instruction. It really showed because at the end he left us to our own devices and we were able to fly solo

Fabulous day with Jake. As I had done pottery before ( not on a wheel though) , it allowed me a head start, meaning I had lots of time on the wheel. Jake is a very good teacher and I learned so much. His studio is also warm and welcoming . I would highly recommend his sessions to anyone . I will certainly be looking to get my own little wheel soon, so I can continue to practice . Wonderful day. Thanks so much Jake

Fantastic experience learning about clay and how to throw a pot. Jake was informative and friendly but happy to let you play without being too hands on. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go again. Thanks Jake .From David & Laura
