Very enjoyable. Carolyn was helpful and generous with her knowledge.
We thoroughly enjoyed weekly casual ceramics classes with Carolyn as it was fun and an enjoyable/interesting recreational activity where we could bond with our family. Carolyn is a very accommodating and encouraging facilitator.
I really loved the two week introduction to hand building with clay! It has provided me with opportunities to be creative in a way that I haven’t before and has sparked a real interest in pottery.
