Such a fantastic class! Loved every minute of it! The teachers were so helpful and patient. Really liked that it was a relaxed environment in a cute little studio with so many friendly people. Will certainly be back!!

Loved the beginners session!! I've tried pottery on the wheel before and not really had much success but Kevin was out tutor and gave really clear demonstration, explanation and individual assistance and I managed to produce a bowl and the beginning of a mug (still needs a handle at a later time). The workshop is really well set up, warm, good parking, friendly kind of 'drop in' type feel which is really flexible rather than having to book into a term of classes. The beginners session runs from 6-8.30 but after that the sessions are 7-9.30. This means you get an hour of dedicated tuition before the other students arrive. However, I didn't know that difference in times from the information available on the website (may be there....and maybe I missed it?). I will definitely be going back as often as possible. Cheers, Kylie
