Learned basic skills of working with clay. Instructor was very skilful, pationate about his work and good teacher. Enjoined the experience but it was not clear before, at the beginning of the class and untill the very end of what to expect from the session ( I had a voucher presented to me for Mother's Day). More structured explanation would be nice.

A very welcoming group of people and well organized . I learned to throw a pot ,a bowl and dish. Very clear instruction. I am going back to whenever I can. The flexibility of access and timetable is the greatest advantage to me.
