I can’t speak highly enough about my experience at the introductory pottery session. A warm & welcoming studio & shopfront. The open heartedness of both Claire & Ox allowed a sense of ease & creativity. 1:1 explicit & hands on teaching made for a fun & playful time on the wheel. Thanks Claire for your down to earth approach. I will highly recommend Oxart to my network of friends.

My first lesson at ox art was fabulous. Clare was a very encouraging and helpful teacher. I loved it so much I’m booking weekly classes. I would highly recommend Ox art - a thoroughly theraputic experience. - Adele
