Sensei was super super nice She listened to our questions and had very clear instructions. We (short term first day class) made plates and bowls of different shapes and sizes from moulds, and smoothed them/patterned them. The room had fresh air and an authentic feel to it, and a very casual atmosphere. Looking forward to the next class
