Really loved this class! As a total novice, Sorrel was super clear and helpful when explaining the process. It was also really interesting to learn about medieval techniques and popular themes which Sorrel is clearly passionate about. Such a fun way to spend an evening. Highly recommend to anyone, whatever your ceramics experience!

LOVED this class!! Have had zero experience in building ceramics so I was very pleasantly surprised how much I was actually able to do by the end of the class! Super fun and informative, Sorrel was a great teacher, and I can’t wait to see what my little guy looks like when it’s been fired!

This class was fantastic! Sorrel was such a great tutor and was so patient making the class fun and teaching us about the history of Medieval face jugs. At the end of the class we were all impressed with how we had made such large jugs - all thanks to the amazing Sorrel! I can’t wait to do it all again!

This workshop was recommended by a friend of mine and I absolutely loved it! I I had been thinking of taking pottery lessons and for me this was a perfect introduction. Sorrel is an excellent teacher, very approachable and engaging. I really liked her studio and I’m coming back for more next year. Paulo

This was my first time working with clay and I had the best time. Our tutor was friendly and supportive but also let us get carried away! Would highly recommend.

This is a really lovely hidden gem of a studio with a charming and friendly vibe. The teacher was great and I had a wonderful workshop. I'd highly recommend

Great class! Sorrel was a skilled teacher, demonstrating the technique and assisting when necessary, but also giving us the room to explore and make our own pieces. She also shared tons of historical facts about ceramics!
