Thursdays have very quickly become my favourite day of the week. I've loved this class more than I can put into words, and am so appreciative of the care, patience, skill and passion of our teacher Allie, and how this class has helped to reignite my own creativity. I very much now see potting as a constant feature in my life moving forward, and thank Muddy Girl Studios for giving me my first taste of this wonderful, enlivening experience.
