A really fantastic course which I gifted to my girlfriend -we both loved it! Tegan was a great teacher; really patient and helpful. We were pleased with what we made, got the bug and are eyeing up a repeat!

Luckily, I was part of a small class which meant the day was very hands on with a lot of tuition. The studio was a lovely a sight and the teacher was brilliant! We managed to get 6 of the items we made fired. Would definitely do it again and would recommend to anyone wanting to try pottery!

This is a really good pottery class. Our teacher was a lovely girl (who I can't remember the name of!) she's super friendly and helpful and really good at showing and helping everyone. The class sizes are small which is great. A totally chilled workshop were you feel super comfortable and relaxed throughout. I'd deffinitly recommend
