This was such a wonderful course! I learnt so much from Georgia, our teacher. She is patient, informed, adaptive, skilled, kind and created a safe and fun environment from the get-go. I liked the structure of throwing with the same weight of clay each week and having a specific base shape/item shown to us to work on each week too. Can’t recommend this course enough!

This series of classes is great for anyone who wants to learn wheelthrowing from zero knowledge. Georgia is a very good teacher who is thorough, supportive, and funny. I am actually planning to do this series again as I know I have a lot to learn and Georgia is very flexible in her teaching style, meaning students at many levels will be able to learn. Thank you, Pink Ember, for your inclusive and comfortable studio 💙
