This was a great class and a fun was to spend the morning. I had zero experience and my partner has much more. Luke did a great job switching from being very patient with me to encouraging my partner to go further. It was a relaxing environment and he spent time with everyone.

I had never created pottery from scratch, so this was a brand new experience. It was so much fun, and Luke was an amazing instructor. He was patient, personable and extremely knowledgeable about all things pottery. It was an excellent experience. And the location and the ride there were beautiful! I would highly recommend this experience.
