Had a great night with Sarah at a recent hand building class. Sarah is a warm, engaging and generous teacher. Her space is beautiful to work in with many different types of clay and glazes to choose from. Sarah had many great ideas and was always on hand to assist. And the food/wine provided was amazing, lifted the night to another level. Just what you need after a hard days work. Thank you Sarah. We will be back.

I did Sarah's hand building workshop a couple of weeks ago, and had a great time. The studio was so beautiful and inviting, and Sarah was a great teacher and really helped everyone to unleash their creativity and create some beautiful works. I was really impressed with the class, and how much we were able to make in such a short period of time. Sarah was incredibly helpful with everything, and it was such a lovely and relaxing morning. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone.
