We had a lovely afternoon discovering the art of clay modelling and making a quirky bird. It was far trickier than I had imagined but Marika was a brilliant teacher, very patient and encouraged us all the way. It was a fun experience as well as a rewarding one learning something new and being creative Marika is very friendly and welcoming, I'd really recommend the experience
