Melisa is such a friendly (offers tea and lovely conversation) and helpful teacher, and really makes you feel comfortable! She focuses on your mistakes and makes you learn through practice - and then you get to keep things you made after they're fired and glazed! Had an awesome experience would 100% recommend and visit again. Maria

This was our first pottery class and we were both instantly hooked! Melissa helped guide us through the basics of throwing on the wheel and, by the end of the quickest hour and a half ever, we had made a selection of fantastic looking pots! She managed to perfectly balance teaching with allowing us to work and experiment independently. Her experience really showed by her ability to instantly recognise mistakes and help you correct them with clear and simple guidance. She is a very patient and talented ceramicist and we would highly recommend her classes to anyone wanting to start pottery. We absolutely intend to go back!
