Pink Ember is a great studio and if you're interested in learning how to use a pottery wheel, I highly recommend it! The space is well-equipped and very welcoming and Lauren is a great teacher - very good at demonstrating and explaining the processes involved. I learnt a lot and am very happy with the pieces I made!
