A great introduction into clay making. Shannon was welcoming and informative in her teaching! Can't wait to see the final product!

I really enjoyed this course. Our teacher easily built rapport with us and demonstrated and explained the techniques involved very clearly. Then we were able to make what we wanted, with her guidance and suggestions. I now have skills I can use for future projects. The venue was spacious and airy and all necessary tools were provided. It was lots of fun and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to work with clay.

An amazing experience, very welcoming and although we were in a small group of 5 it felt very personalised. 3 hours went by so quick - I just wanted to stay longer to make more designs. This was fun and would recommend to anyone!
