I had a wonderful time, it was a really fun experience and I learnt a lot about creating pottery. I would 100% recommend taking this class- it was interesting, fun plus expertly and patiently taught!

I attended a try the wheel lesson recently and it was fantastic. I have very little experience in pottery and found this class to be really fun! Claire was friendly, informative, patient and so easy to talk to. She had some great tips and tricks and explained things in a way that made it really easy to understand. The small intimate class sizes also made the whole experience less overwhelming and more personal! I will definitely be returning and I will be sure to bring some friends along too. Thanks Claire!
