We had a great time! The class was so creatively fulfilling, and the instructor was so helpful.

Had a great time at the hand building ceramics class. Bat Haus was prompt in accommodating my request for a group workshop. Because this was a one day workshop, we weren't aiming for perfection but just learn some basics and have fun and the instructor was perfect for that. Thorough, patient and fun, she helped salvage struggling pieces, offering great advice on design and technique while encouraging us to experiment. The location was great, and we got a beautiful studio space downstairs to ourselves.

I took my daughter to a hand crafting ceramics class with Seda! The class was awesome! Seda was very professional, detailed in her explanations, and very engaging. She had a smile on her face during the entire class and spent a good amount of time with every student. She demonstrated different techniques, offered suggestions and encouraged her students to explore and experiment with the materials and shapes. We will definitely come again!❤
