Sarah is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had the pleasure of having! She offers 1:1 help/teaching throughout the class and isn’t just an excellently skilled and super talented ceramicist and teacher, but becomes your friend in the process! Her studio is cosy, yet spacious and you get delicious teas and sweet treats while you’re there. I felt super comfortable, learnt a lot and quickly too, and really enjoyed every class with Sarah! Can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic course! I was eager to attend each class to apply the skills I had learnt. It was very fulfilling to see the growth made from week to week. Sarah was a great teacher and very helpful. Her passion for what she does is infectious. I’m planning to enrol again!

I have feel so lucky to have Sarah as a pottery teacher the last 3 terms. Sarah is extremely patient and takes the time explain and teach pottery techniques time after time. Sarah is very generous with her time and knowledge and because of that I have been able to finally make pieces that are symmetrical and functional for everyday use. I am so excited to learn more pottery techniques next term! Thank you, Sarah :)
