"I can't believe how much pure joy I feel every time I go along for my pottery class at Yoxford Makers...the whole experience has been so positive.
The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed; Nancy is such a good tutor, she is extremely patient and encouraging. I look forward to my weekly class, not only is it an outlet for creativity but its also strangely cathartic, I am hooked!"  CK
" It's such a joy to find an artist who's not only great at their craft but also proves to be a brilliant teacher. The two, as in great artist and brilliant teacher, don't go together as often as people think. Fortunately for Yoxford, Nancy Main is a natural when it comes to instruction, and it was a wonderful experience for me, a complete novice potter, to join one of Nancy's very first workshops and imbibe something of her skills, knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm. I loved every lesson and learned a huge amount as did my fellow students. I have, of course, signed up for the next tranche of Yoxford Maker's courses. Watch out 'Great Pottery Throwdown'! "  Frances
 " The Pottery Experience Day lived up to all expectations and was exactly that, an amazing experience! Such a welcoming, relaxed and calm environment with excellent tuition and guidance from Nancy and the odd rescue! The wheel is addictive and fun, I loved it and was astounded how much I was able to achieve over the course of the day. With glazes chosen, I am looking forward to seeing the end result of my work once the firing process is complete. I am hooked and will return, joining one of the longer courses offered.
Thank you Nancy ! " CR
"Enjoying the classes so very much - so interesting, with a new topic every week, and on-going learning encouraged. Not only are we learning to throw pots but also all that goes with it, such as prepping and recycling clay, the different types, glazes etc. Demonstrations each week including handles, bowls, spouts and cylinders.
Nancy is so supportive and encouraging, leaving you to experiment in your own way but jumping in before disaster happens. I have learnt so much from my mistakes too.
Highly recommend these classes." RL
" I knew it'd be good, but not this good!!! I took a chance and now I'm completely hooked!!! Nancy guides everyone so beautifully and with remarkable results. The clay, the glazes and array of tools are wonderful, a slab and coil machine making hand building so much easier! There is an air of concentration in the room and it's a perfect atmosphere to experiment, create and think !
I've struck GOLD!"  AN
" Had a fantastic morning with Nancy at Yoxford Makers, learning (for the very first time) the basics of pottery - Nancy was extremely patient and I loved every minute of it - will definitely be returning and am even delighted with the finished pots! "  TO
