I really loved this class and would recommend to anyone wanting to learn new creative skills. I was pretty nervous going to class for the first time and doubted my ability to socialise with new people and create something in a group setting. But Sarah is a great teacher - warm and encouraging and puts you at ease immediately. I had so much fun experimenting with shapes and colour and using my hands. And to my surprise, I ended up with a bunch of lovely pottery that I actually made!
