First time attending a sculpting workshop & thoroughly enjoyed it!Hosts/Teachers were fantastic & great at running through the steps to create the peices & explaining processes and methods.Highly recommend the workshop if you fancy trying something new / different!Great value for money.Both myself and friend enjoyed it and you get to take your creations home.

Elaine Stockton Nov 2023

This was such a fun class and the tutors were amazing, so helpful! I would definitely do this again.

The only negative is not a reflection on the provider but the location. My session was help in Revolution but they did not accommodate it at all. Right behind us they were blasting music and MCing meaning the tutors had to shout but they did their very best and absolutely made it work!

Bernadette Nov 2023

Beam our teacher was fantastic, she was so cheerful and explained everything clearly, she was also very helpful. My friend and I had a fabulous couple of hours, it was such a fun activity.

Gabriel Llanos Subijana Nov 2023

We had a fantastic time getting our hands dirty with some clay, like being kids again. Our teacher Beam was lovely, very supportive and extremely enthusiastic. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Jules Howdin Nov 2023

The venue was great; Beam was
really friendly, supportive and encouraging of creativity! Really enjoyed it.

This was my first time attending one of these classes and I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. There were two teachers guiding us who were both super helpful. Especially Millie, who kept coming over to make sure we were okay, had enough supplies and knew what we were doing. Without a doubt, Millie made the experience and I will keep my fingers & toes crossed, that she will be hosting the next event I attend. The venue was super spacious & felt comfortable and that I had enough room. I'd happily recommend these classes to anyone, it's fun and different and a nice way to socialise with friends and family.

Very nice experience :) I would definitely recommend it. It's a nice way to enjoy and spend the afternoon having a drink and doing some artistic sculptures.

Emily Challenger Oct 2023

We had a great time at the sip and sculpt class in Manchester. It was a corporate group, and everyone had a really good experience. The teacher was friendly and patient and really helpful.

Michael Graham Oct 2023

A very enjoyable session. Was gifted this experience as a birthday present and it didn't disappoint. The teachers were friendly and engaging, providing useful guidance while letting you run free creatively. They provide everything you would need and the pottery is great to have after. There was plenty of space for all involved. Would reccomend to anyone.

Sandra Benson Sep 2023

We had a great time…brilliant experience…good teacher…such a good idea…will recommend to others!

Anonymised ClassBento student Sep 2023

Teacher was friendly, but expected there to be more guidance. No examples of what we were making to look at, or ideas for inspiration which could have helped with the hour + of free time.

Amelia Morgan-Gumm Sep 2023

Brilliant class! Had an amazing time. The teacher was very friendly, helpful, and good at explaining.

We booked as a works night out and had a fabulous time. The instructor Beam was patient - we didn’t have a clue - gave instructions to make a pinch pot and then advised us and helped with ideas when we were given free choice. All 6 of us had a ball. The venue was downstairs in Revolution bar - it was spacious and although you had to go upstairs to order drinks, this wasn’t a problem. We’d definitely do this or another class again.

Aslam Lone Jun 2023

The class was amazing, Katie our teacher was incredibly helpful and had endless patience for our questions. She made the class feel completely at ease for beginners and created an amazing atmosphere for the class. All materials were provided including a tray and bag to take away any sculptures made which was such a fantastic thing to be provided as many wee travelling and wanted to keep our models safe. The venue was revolution bar but we had a space set aside and never felt intrusive by any bar patrons. A genuine all around amazing experience so much so we'll be booking to go again especially if Katie is teaching !

Leanne Starkey Jun 2023

Location was easy to find and friendly atmosphere.
Teacher was pleasant and kind
was a fun day with a variety of tools to be used, could have had a few more cut outs or stamps to make something more creative. some ideas of things to create, pictures, ideas, examples.
Could have been a little more organised, some poeple were starting while some people were waiting, didn't know what we should be doing. wasn't sure if we should be doing our own thing or following instructions as it was a bit all over the place.
We could get drinks at the bar but we were covered in clay so it was difficult, would have been nice to get table service as we would have had more drinks if that was the case.

Lisa Stevens Jun 2023

Teacher was fab, really fun and knowledgeable and taught us lots. Would definitely book again!

Tamira Kasan Jun 2023

My friend and I absolutely loved this class! The teachers were so positive and engaging and made you feel like your pottery was 10/10. Jess and I will be back! We want to do this once a month or once a season because we had SO much fun!

Matthew Ball Jun 2023

The instructor was great! Really knowledgeable and built a great atmosphere and kept checking we knew what to do. Pub was a great venue as well.

Josie Hull Jun 2023

It was really good we all enjoyed it. I just wish that there was atleast one drink included or you could take tools home

Melissa Cooper Jun 2023

Lovelyyy ladies who run the event. Super chilled with no experience or intent needed with what you want to create. The atmosphere was lively whilst still being quite therapeutic. Around 30 people for a class without feeling too intimate. Nice venue with a private area for the event. Would 100% do this again. Worth it for 2 hours and the atmosphere.

Abi Eyre Jun 2023

I loved it It was so fun to play around with they clay with your mates and also meet new people as well! The girls leading it were sooo friendly and supportive! I would 100% do another class !

Elizabeth Chapman Apr 2023

Absolutely brilliant evening. The teachers were great and very encouraging. I was in a group of 6 ladies and we all had so much fun and laughed a lot. Had everything we needed and we sculpted our pet dogs and some Christmas tree decorations (which will make it to the tree this year!) I don't know how you do it for the cost, fabulous.

Caitlin Scotf Apr 2023

The atmosphere in the class was really nice! The teacher taught us a few techniques of how to work with the clay which was interesting and allowed us to be creative with what we make. Really enjoyed my time would definitely recommend.

Janine Flannery Feb 2023

Thought it was a strange venue at first but it worked really well. Really good atmosphere crested by those attending and the hosts were fantastic, they gave some good info to get us started and then continued to encourage throughout. Being able to grab a drink at anytime just topped it off. Great night and a lot of fun, thanks

Emma Thompson Feb 2023

Teacher was lovely, very attentive to us all, chatty and helpful.

I did find it difficult to know what to make as I'm not very creative but it sort of flows at the end.

This class is a great idea for couples/friends/family!

Lola Gustin Feb 2023

Very nice teacher, she gave some good tips and encouraged creativity !
Would do it again :)

Caz Brazell Jan 2023

We had such a great time. It was on a lovely venue, very relaxed vibe. The hosts were great, it felt like an evening with friends with the added bonus of being shown how to do something new with tips and ideas to try out.

I'd certainly recommend giving this a go.

Thanks for a great event x

Great location and lovely class. It was my first time playing with clay and it's really relaxing. You are given more clay to play with of you want to build more thigs. Highly recommend

Beatriz Barbosa Oct 2022

It was a lot of fun: both the chatting and the ability to experiment a bit with pottery!

The class was amazing from start to finish! Alice was an unbelievable teacher and all of the assistants were so down to earth! Everyone makes a pinch bowl to begin with and then you have free reign to make something of your own. If you're like me and have 0 creativity the girls are there to offer support.

The Kings Arms where it's situated is also a very lovely pub and you're tucked away in a room with other people doing the same thing.

10/10 experience and cannot wait to book more paintvine experiences!
