We attended this class for my friend's Birthday and it was incredibly informative and fun!! Our teacher was amazing at showing us how to do each step and being available to everyone when necessary. We made a few different shaped vessels and have left them to be fired and can collect them in a few weeks. We will definitely be back for another class, it was soooo fun!!!

Todays class was fantastic! Jess was so fun and her instructions were seamless. She was so attentive to each guest, making sure to come and show us how to get the most from our pottery pieces and time at MuddyGirl. 6/ 5 🌟 Cannot wait to book again (and again; and again) 😋
