Handbuilding and Wheel (Beginner)
Reviewed by Cat W. on 8/18/2016
The class was awful. The instruction amounted to a couple of demonstrations on the wheel and one class on pinch pots with a bit of hand building ideas if you wanted them. It was mostly a free for all; folks clamboring for materials and personal attention and a lot of people who were not in the class vying for materials and space as well. The studio is a mess; no one knows where anything is. Sadly, the instructors meant well but were just not good at instructing.
