    I enjoyed your workshop so much! Everything was perfect that day, the company of the other potters, the setting, the lovely lunch, being surrounded by your work, and getting to work with the lovely clay. It was truly one of the highlights of my year in the Burren. I can’t thank you enough. Best Regards, Rhonda

    Thank you for Saturday – I totally enjoyed the day and the fabulous simple and delectable lunch! ( a glass of dry white would have made it perfect but maybe not for points on my licence if I were stopped ! 🙄😁) and the lovely view ! Not of David, the foreshore and sea.

    Loved every minute of it! Such an enjoyable experience. What a treat to arrive to such a beautiful setting, to learn and work with your hands, to be guided individually, to be thought so many aspects of the craft. Amazing atmosphere and people to spend time with not to mention the scrumptious food! I had to ask to see Jackie’s artwork & was delighted to be able to bring home and share with my friends & family. Highly recommended for all, I went as an individual but would also recommend as a great idea for a family, group of friends also. Never stopped laughing! Thank you Jackie, what an amazing woman you are x
