In-person course
Fiona Akins - - #33338

My daughter and I attended Karen's pottery class and had a great morning. The class was relaxed and informal, Karen talked us through the process of throwing the clay and demonstrated the process before letting us loose on the potters wheels. Throwing the clay is a lot harder than I thought it would be physically but would definitely have another go. Certainly would recommend a class with Karen.

Was very impressed with the Covid procedures Karen has in place, felt a very safe environment, strict cleaning of utensils, no sharing of equipment, open window, hand sanitizer etc.

Absolutely loved the 6-week pottery course with Karen. Each week a new task to learn in pottery-making.

Very much enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend to anyone!

Thanks Karen!

In-person course
Deborah Jones - - #25602

The lady who took the class was very welcoming, and was interested in what we needed from the course. I enjoyed the throwing session very much, and was also shown other techniques.
There was good correspondence regarding how to get to the venue, where we could park and eat etc.
I would definitely book another class. The environment where the studio was based is inspiring and in a comfortable setting.

Response from Karen Dawn Curtis:

Hi Debs,

Thank you so much for the review and so very glad you enjoyed the day!! It was a pleasure to teach you and Louise. Your work is drying nicely and I look forward to firing it.

Kind regards
