I went with my wife and we had a great time making a couple of pinch pots. The instructor was very friendly and helpful, and it was a nice environment. Don't expect your creations to look very good, but this doesn't take away from the fun. Your hands will get dirty, but apart from that it's clean (as long as you aren't clumsy). I strongly recommend doing a bit of research before the class and have an idea of what you want to make - the instructor can help you make it come to life.
