My daughter and I had a great time at the Try the Wheel workshop and we can’t wait to go back to learn more. The adorable pottery studio is set amongst a leafy hillside, It’s the perfect setting for a fun and friendly introduction to throwing clay.

I booked this experience for my husbands birthday and man was it fun!! Claire was friendly and welcoming the moment we arrived. The environment this class is set in is perfect - rustic mountain hideaway with big ferns and trees surrounding. As for the technical side of things, Claire was very informative and I learned a great deal about throwing clay :) highly recommend!
