Claire is very talented, kind, knowledgeable. She has passion for what pottery, makes her own stunning creations and is a wonderful teacher. The class size is small and the course runs through everything from edging to glazing. She has a beautiful studio and strives to see all her students come away with incredible pieces of work. I've already been a couple of times and can definitely recommend this course, it's 10/10!
