If you have some experience of throwing this is a great class as Sarah is there to help and inspire but so are the others in the class. Sharing ideas and generally just enjoying the friendly environment of creativity.

Sarah is such an amazing teacher. She is so kind and caring and just an absolute joy to be around. From Sarah’s classes I have been able to make mugs, cups, vases, bowls, teapots and citrus juicers. Sarah work incredibly hard to ensure everyone’s pieces are ready in a timely manner. Can not recommend this class highly enough!!!!
