Set in my Lost Garden Studio, you'll experience my end of garden pottery haven, surrounded by trees and plants, the odd fox and lots of birds. On warm days we can work outside too. The studio setup includes two desks and the potters wheel- so you can expect to spend at least a third of the course on the potter's wheel, making bowls, cups and dishes.
