We had a wonderful time and our teacher, Darlene, was fantastic!!!
We had an awesome time throwing pottery on the wheel!
Our instructor "Durleen" was early and let us get started. She took the time to show us around, help us set up, and introduce us to regular students. After the basic instruction she gave help to the other person in my group and let me forge ahead as I have had some previous experience. She answered questions and talked about various techniques. It was a wonderful experience. We had purchased additional time when using our certificate, and it was absolutely worth it! I would recommend this to anyone who has either experienced throwing or even never touched clay before!
This was a team member building event for which I only booked and did not attend. However, everyone that was present said it was nice and they really enjoyed the experience. Thank you.
