Such a fun, relax class, it was my first time ever learning pottery. The teacher was supportive, friendly with great instructions. I wish we had a bit longer time on the wheel for beginners :)

This class was most enjoyable & informative. Georgia was knowledgeable, friendly, kind and encouraging. Having never done wheel throwing before, I found the ephemeral nature of working with clay quite relaxing: we could try, focus on technique & sometimes succeed, or test ideas and accept imperfection, or learn that when things get too wonky you needed to stop, reset & move on! Helpful life skills in a very lovely, inspiring atmosphere!
