Super fun and less stressful than working with a wheel! Nice and patient teacher, too. I’m looking forward to see the fired product!

This was my second workshop with Pedro. He is excellent at explaining the steps clearly and making sure that everyone has an organized setup before the students begin. As with the first workshop, it was a real pleasure to learn the best practices from someone with deep experience in ceramics.
