Yen Yu is a really good teacher. The class is very chilled and you can essentially make what you want after you learn the different hand building techniques. You can make practical things or experimental things, Yen Yu is very relaxed and will help bring your vision to life.

It's a very relaxing environment to learn new skills or build new hobby. The teacher is encouraging and willing to teach or answer questions me until I fully understand how it works. There are several workshop options as well as special workshop depends on events and holidays. I highly recommend spending some of your time to learn new things and release your stress :)

Super cosy studio with a lovely and helpful Teacher! We bought the 3 sessions and it was great to be able to come back over a series of weeks to work on our tableware pieces. I would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a more in depth class. It was a chilled out vibe and we had a good amount of freedom to experiment and play. Would definitely go back!

Relaxing ceramic hand-building workshop. You can create whatever you want, Yen Yu will teach you hand-building methods and give you suggestions if you get stuck. You also get an unlimited supply of clay to use as well! :)

We had an amazing two hours making ceramics with Yen. She was very accommodating and flexible and allowed us to reschedule due to an emergency on the day we originally booked. The class was comprehensive, interesting and most importantly fun. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in clay pottery.

Yen Yu was lovely, friendly and relaxed. We settled into making fairly quickly without too much time spent on instructions, which we liked - learn by doing! We learned the basic technique behind making a mug/bowl (though I think you can make anything you like really). For me it was a 2-3hr practice in letting go of what I thought I was making and seeing the beauty of what emerged. All in all, a fun meditative way to spend a few hours with a friend.

As my first experience I would recommend it. Yen Yun is a quite, pacific human being; she’s there checking if everything’s okay, helping you and suggesting you how to reach your “final goal” aka your pottery.
