The teacher was so good she explained what I needed to do went away left me to try and then returned at the right time to show me more or correct my mistakes she was friendly calm and explained the process very clearly I felt very comfortable with her explanation.

It was a gift from my daughter and I feel I want to learn more about the process of pottery.

The room was cool and calm nice people going about the pottery process.

Our teacher is quite friendly and patient! Always remind me put down ur elbows hahahahha. And the venue is good as well. Not a big place but be very organised. The first class to make three bowl like potteries, for me is not easy but is a great beginning!

The teacher was very patient, accommodating and encouraging. The space was relaxed and had the right tools which meant we were able to focus on getting into the actual pottery lesson. I'd definitely recommend to other friends and am looking forward to continuing on with my bowl making!

Yegana is lovely, patient and helpful. She provided slow and easy to understand instructions.

I loved being able to use my hands to create something!

Thoroughly enjoyed this class.

It has been really fun, working with the clay was not my second nature but thr teacher has been extremly patient. The venue is a walking distance from home, spacious and relaxing. I am looking forward to next two classes and see the final products.

Yegana was very attentive and accommodating. Her instructions were very clear and at a good pace to follow. This was also combined with visual demonstrations which accommodated all types of learners.
The venue is convenient and close to public transport. The materials were good and easy to work with and all tools were provided. The class was very informative and good length for weekly consecutive sessions. I learned a lot and it was a great crash course. I learned enough to take away and refine my skills with practice. The class size was small and intimate and ensured you did not get lost or forgotten about. I also loved the succulents and orchids that adorned the windows in the studio! Added charm and inspiration. Thank you!

Fun class and great atmosphere and vibe. As a beginner I probably needed a little more hands on coaching as I found it quite difficult but I'm sure with more practice I'll get there.

It was my first time doing pottery and it’s a really good experience. I loved it the way my teacher ( Jioana) explained the each steps from the starting. I still need to learn more which can only gain by experience and more practice. I definitely recommend my friends to try upcoming class sessions.

Just did the first class of three, the teacher was excellent. She provided clear instructions and demonstrations for each step of the process, and gave us plenty of room to practice but was quick to step in as soon as anyone needed help. Highly recommended.

Lovely little venue. Yegana?( sorry not sure how to spell her name) is an absolutely lovely instructor- she caters for all abilities and makes sure that everyone is on the same page. Very patient and great materials to work with. Loved how everything was included and easy to follow. I'm very happy with the end result and had an absolute blast, would definitely come again. Can't recommend this course to my friends enough. xx

Yegana is so patient in teaching step by step techniques. If you've fallen behind, she would come to you and guide you until you get it. Absolutely worth every penny spent.

I’ve only had my first lesson but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The teacher was incredibly patient and kind and the classroom was as expected for pottery work. I really enjoyed creating with my hands and I cannot wait to go back for my next lesson.

I bought these classes as a birthday gift for my partner. We both enjoyed the whole entire experience. It was really interesting and a lot of fun. The teacher Yegana was really nice and supportive. Can't wait for our next class.

Had a ceramic's painting class for a Hen's Night. Yegana was so welcoming and helpful. She provided a space for us to set up nibblies and drinks early, explained the painting and glazing process and then let us get to work. We all had such a wonderful time. The venue was easy to find. The Bride enjoyed the class immensely. Top quality.

Nice studio with a small group of beginners enabling the instructor to provide regular support & technique advice. The studio was being used by a nice number of others who were at differing stages of experience adding to a nice vibe. Instructor has a lovely manner about her, provides great instructions, guidance & assistance.
