This was an gift for my two Granddaughters and it went down a storm. What a great way to introduce young teens to pottery, new skills, and build confidence in their own artistic ability in a safe and relaxed environment. Thank you.

Hi Sonya. Thanks for an excellent day yesterday. You were a complete star, keeping us all busy and focused and offering a flexible day tailored to our skills and pace of working. We were really pleased with what we managed to achieve by the end of the day. Thank you again for a memorable family day out.

Response from Werxzovart Studio Gallery:Thanks Judith, it was a pleasure to meet you all and do pottery with you. You were all very creative and it was quite exciting to see what you made! Sonje
Thank you so much Sonje! We had such a great time on our all day pottery and clay workshop at Sonje's studio in Princetown, Dartmoor. Her artwork and pottery is beautiful and she was a fantastic teacher, encouraging us to find our own style, teaching us lots of new skills and keeping the day really fun. She was great in tailoring the day to what we were looking for; a one day private session with 4 of us so i would really recommend getting in touch with her to talk about what you would like to do! Thanks again, we had a great time and would really recommend Sonje's workshops to anyone who is new to pottery and clay to give it a go!!

Response from Werxzovart Studio Gallery:Thankyou Emily, It was such a great day for me as well and I am so pleased you all enjoyed yourselves! If you are ever in West Yorkshire do pop in and say hello! Sonje
I spent two days at Princetown with Sonje Hibbert learning to throw on the wheel, i went with a friend and we both had a very interesting and happy time with Sonje. She is a very skilled and patient potter and her workshop was very inspirational she had beautiful pottery and paintings for us to look at.
She is also very skilled and knowledgeable about glazes and all mediums to decorate pottery.
Two fabulous days and very good value for money with a very skilled patient lady.
