Such a great experience in the 6-week courses. The teacher has guided and helped me through the whole process of pottery with great patient. I had 9 final pots done in various sizes and the environment is so happy and relaxed with ladies every Thursday night.

Ally and Claire are excellent teachers- patient, knowledgeable and supportive. They create a peaceful and creative space to learn new things and make exciting peices. The classes and whats included are the best value for money I have found all across melbourne and I make a point to drive the 50 mins each way to attend this particular studio. Their COVID safe practises have been excellent throughout the last 12 months and the studio size allows for safe distancing while still being able to feel cosy and connected. Thanks for another great term Claire and Ally!
