When I saw the add on Airbnb I knew it was something I was interested in doing and Luke didn’t let us down. He is warm and welcoming and knows what he’s doing. He’s very patient and very involved in what you’re creating. As soon as we were done with one project he would literally “slap on” another ball of clay to keep going. Wonderful experience and we will definitely be back again! Also- beautiful scenery driving to his location.

I booked this experience as part of a birthday gift for a friend and it exceeded our expectations! Luke was so friendly and welcoming. He took the time to show us the basics and then let us take the wheel. We were able to make multiple pieces during the allotted time (I made 5 pieces total) and we had a lot of flexibility in terms of what we wanted to make. After the class is over you get to choose the pieces you wants glazed/fired and eventually shipped to you. Luke was a great teacher and let us experiment as much as we wanted, but provided a guiding hand when we needed some support. I can't recommend this experience enough, we are already talking about going back!

Luke was great and I loved the experience. I've always wanted to do something like this and Luke made it an amazing experience. Small group size is a huge plus, and he really took the time to go in depth, show us, and help us when we needed help. Kitties were a super cute bonus too!

This was an amazing experience. After watching Luke explain and demonstrate what we would be doing, I thought, there’s no way I can do this. But with great teaching I did it! Left there feeling newly learned, inspired and accomplished! A must do if you’re in the area! And the cats only made the whole experience that much sweeter!

Amazing experience! Luke makes me feels competent enough. Great teacher. I had low expectations coming in, not knowing I would be able to assemble even a piece. At the end of this, I am hooked and would like to continue my learning. Thank you Luke for making this experience wonderful.

This was a great experience. Luke is an awesome teacher and I felt like we accomplished a lot in 1.5 hours. I made 4 bowls and can’t wait to see how they turn out (Luke plans to mail us the finished product). Highly recommended!!
