During the Glossop Art Trail weekend in December 2011 I visited the home studio of Adrian Holt.  I enjoyed his relaxed and friendly welcome and was so inspired by the variety and beauty of his work that I took the opportunity to sign up for a Ceramics Taster session.  Some weeks later I was fortunate enough to have Adrian’s patient and enthusiastic tuition during the workshop.  Myself and fellow novices were given an introduction into the theory and practice of ceramics and were able to create our own clay masks.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and one I would recommend highly.

“I went along for a taster session, and a return visit to glaze my ‘work of art’ after firing. It was fascinating; Adrian was very welcoming, easy to talk to and had the ability to inform and teach in a relaxed and informal manner.   Adrian loves his subject and I would recommend anyone to have a try.”
