Erika is the loveliest! She was very patient during the class and listened very attentively to what I would like to learn and achieve from her class. She is also very responsive to before and after class texts which is very helpful for finding the way to her studio and collecting your finished piece

Erika is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met! Her warmth and enthusiasm shines through, making the classes she teaches an absolutely wonderful experience. I took for granted the amount of skill and talent one needs in her profession, it’s no simple accomplishment. Having Erika show me her pieces and taking me through the steps of painting my own plate made me appreciate how much depth there is to such an art. Highly recommend her class, not only do you leave the class with a porcelain plate handmade by her and painted by you, you also get a relaxing, happy evening that serves as a brilliant escape from life’s chaos.

This was an incredible experience, and I can not wait for my next class. Erika is so knowledgeable and patient with her instruction. Her mastery in porcelain painting (evident in her beautiful art pieces!) and her teaching method made this the perfect intro to fine porcelain painting!

Erika was wonderful, I had a great time and learned a lot from here. Time just flew away. I made some very nice things which she then ovened for me. She’s definitely an artist and good at explaining her work too. Very recommend!

I really enjoyed Erika's workshop and also to see an artist studio. I was shown how to mix pigments with a mixing medium and to handle the brush, which was quite tricky but Erika was very attentive and helped me when necessary. I practised on a wide plate and painted a mug that I wanted to take home. Erika was very prompt with her email communication and I picked up a mug I painted about 2 weeks after my workshop. She was a very skilled artist and a nice teacher!

I had a lovely evening at this workshop with Erika. She is so knowledgeable and experienced, the time really flew by. She walks you through all the basics thoroughly and gives you time to practice - and you get to create a truly unique piece!

Had a great time learning a unique skill with Erika who is a kind, patient and enthusiastic teacher with plenty of experience in this discipline. She set everything up nicely for me and made me feel at ease and encouraged. Highly recommend this course to someone who wants to broaden their artistic skills and there's the added bonus that you come away with your own hand painted item.
