This was my second workshop with Kate. Once again I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try something new and creative in a friendly, relaxed environment. Kate organises everything for you, including the tidying up at the end. She was enthusiastic and encouraging, inspiring us all to experiment with texture and colour. Thank you Kate, I'm looking forward to seeing my finished pots!
Response from Kate Schuricht:Hello Kirsty. Thanks for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed the workshop and the chance to experiment with a new technique. It was good to see you trying out the wax resist and the underglaze colour, with some lovely outcomes. Not long now before the pieces are ready! See you at 'Clay As A Canvas' in a few weeks.
Relaxed, informed, room for creative experiment, perfect for beginners like me.
Response from Kate Schuricht:Hi Julie.
After Kate's clear demonstration, it was fun to try out a new technique. Kate creates a relaxed atmosphere, making it easy for people to experiment, she is very encouraging. I really enjoyed it, thank you again Kate :)
This was my first workshop with Kate and I would recommend it !

Response from Kate Schuricht:I am really glad you enjoyed the workshop, Dominique. Thanks for the feedback.
