Sarah has created an amazingly open, comfortable and greatly inspiring space. No matter how much experience you may have Sarah always takes the time to ensure you are learning and creating with no pressure to only keep your very best also means she allows you to experiment and push yourself and enjoy what you have created. The studio is always well kept and inviting. And your pieces are cared for and kept safe between classes.

This is now the fourth term I have taken with Sarah and I am of course signed up for the next! Her teaching style is warm, relaxed, and engaging, and she shares all of her industry secrets and years of experience so willingly with her students. You certainly do get the pleasure of seeing your skills improve under Sarah's thoughtful guidance. Most importantly, her studio is beautiful, relaxed, and fun, and the endless stream of sugary snacks and tea certainly make for a lovely learning environment. I could not recommend Sarah's classes highly enough!
