We had a wonderful afternoon with expert friendly and encouraging tuition. Most of the class were first time wheel users and Sarah made us feel welcomed and at ease. The food was a lovely spread and delicious! So pleased to find multiple clinical grade air purifiers located throughout. Fantastic to see particularly for those that are vulnerable and immune compromised. Thoroughly recommend.

A great session! I went on my own (to try it out) and felt very welcomed and comfortable. The grazing platter was very beautiful and it turns out that (with a bit of good instruction from Sarah), my wheel skills are much better than my pinch pot skills from year 7. Lots of fun. Highly recommend.

Such a great afternoon! Both Sarah and Lisa are amazing teachers who are highly skilled and incredibly patient. And the workshop format is perfect to catch up with friends over lovely food & drinks between time on the wheel.
