Student Testimonials

“2 hr Pottery Wheel Intro Experience” was great! Jeff was super chill and helpful. Great lesson to get is started throwing clay. Great atmosphere with a super relaxed vibe. Definitely coming back again! Sara

Jeff was a delight! We ended up getting a private lesson and it was well worth it. I learned a lot about clay and how to handle it with your hands. I will definitely return to refine my skills.
Huy Tran

Thank you Jeff for all the help! I had fun using the wheel again. I definitely need more practice so I’ll be coming back! Nice relaxing class to take!!
Amber Montoya

Awesome experience. We luckily got some one on one time but itwas very hands on and felt like their was a good balance of educational benefits without being too invasive on the “date night” aspect. Would love to come back again
Suzanne Birchard

Great time throwing this week. Will definitely look into open studio availabilities for the two(2) of us. Interested in seeing if there are kiln fees for firing pieces that we throw on the wheel at home and bring to the studio for bisque and glaze firing? We will definitely stay in touch. Thank you!
