Teacher was nice and the place was also so good. I really enjoyed that making my own pots!

It was okay. Not much structure, and not many options other than pinch pots? For the $$ we paid it wasn't worth it.

Great class - really enjoyed, the instructor was really friendly and encouraging (far nicer than I recall my school art teachers being!) We were given the choice to make whatever we wanted which I wasn't expecting, so my advice to anyone doing the class is to think about what you want to create (coffee cup / bowl etc) and how you want it to look before you go to the session. Also - the firing can take up to a month to be completed so if you are planning on using as a gift keep this in mind.
