    The professor explains super well how to work with the clay, then you try on your own. You are allowed to try a couple of times and then keep the one that you like the most. It was my sister birthday, but you can do it for fun or for a date.

    Had a great time at this class. Have been wanting to try pottery on the wheel for a while now and I’m glad they offer a one time course where you can come home with an item you made. The teacher was great, helpful and explained everything really well!
