I learnt all about paper clay, how to use it, how to maintain it. Graham was an excellent instructor. I really enjoyed listening to him.
Graham is great, very welcoming, and really willing to impart his knowledge, and experiences. Can't wait for my next class!
I have been casually attending Graham Hay's Pottery & Sculpture classes for the past 12 months and have become absolutely addicted to clay. The room environment is very relaxed and because the passes can be used at a time convenient to you, the classes are dynamic and you are forever meeting new people which is always a lovely experience. The kind of work everyone chooses to do is extremely varied and personal to each student which I think is terrific as there is a real emphasis on simply allowing creation through discovery. I'm very much looking forward to the next 12 months. Ana
