Clay was provided by our wonderful teacher. We made about 2-3 utensils and it felt therapeutic in a way. Calm and cozy environment, with a friendly dog.

Carol's class is fabulous! We learnt and applied the techniques to making our pinch pots in a wonderful calm environment. The classes are small and personal. The other students and I are all coming back to take more workshops with Carol.
