I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah's hand building workshop. It was a lovely, relaxed, inspiring, productive experience. I loved the pieces I made and found Sarah's advice to be spot on. Not to mention the food platter! Fantastic <3

Had a great night with Sarah at a recent hand building class. Sarah is a warm, engaging and generous teacher. Her space is beautiful to work in with many different types of clay and glazes to choose from. Sarah had many great ideas and was always on hand to assist. And the food/wine provided was amazing, lifted the night to another level. Just what you need after a hard days work. Thank you Sarah. We will be back.
