My mum and I did Sarah’s intro to hand building workshop and it was excellent! Sarah was a great teacher and created a very welcoming and encouraging environment. The course was very good value too, we made multiple pieces of varying sizes and it also included wine and a delicious spread put on by Sarah. Would highly recommend!

I've participated in a few of Sarahs workshops, and this one was no different. The experience was amazing, we were greeted by smiling face, and humbly welcomed into her beautiful studio. After a nibbling on a grazing table and having a glass of wine we had a quick introduction to Sarah before getting into a demonstration and then onto the clay. Overall, the 3 hours in the space were welcoming, informative and we felt supported in our endeavours to make some vases and plates. I would recommend this workshop for individuals and groups.

Sarah's class has a wonderful and relaxed environment. She let's you set the pace while she attends and assists as needed. Different techniques and designs are demonstrated and she offers a kind of template (to follow if you wish) but supports all individual pursuits as well. I used so many different tools. She provides lots of snacks, coffee, prosecco, and I can't wait to come back for a wheel class.
