Perfect beginner session! None of us had any experience with pottery, but our teacher guided us through the entire process from start to finish - she was very passionate and let us run with it (she did have to step in a few times and fixed our work even when we thought it was beyond saving!). The studio is brand new and super cute, and everything you need is provided. Would love to come back soon and experiment with some different shapes and techniques. Highly recommend to anyone who fancies their hand at some pottery for the first time, or is looking for a fun alternative afternoon with friends.
