Great experience, very chill and encouraging environment, and so great that one fired piece is included!

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



Teacher was very good. Materials were provided. Would have liked a little more individualized instruction, but it was a packed class. Also, it was supposed to be a two hour session, but they ended it pretty early.

Had a lot of fun! The teacher was great watching over and giving pointers to make sure my bowl didn't break apart.

The class was really fun - highly recommend. I wish they had a subscription that would allow us to do this more frequently / allow us to paint the pots

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



The teacher wasn’t the best at making sure everyone was helped. There were multiple times that we asked her for help and she said she’d be right back and then would help others instead and never come back so we would just have to figure out what to do on our own. Pretty frustrating. We had a good time, but this was a gift for my mother and she was disappointed because she didn’t end up with a piece she liked. Even when the instructor said she’d come help her with the last piece to make sure she had a good piece, she didn’t. It also would’ve  + more

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



Unique experience to try pottery once, but it's a bit difficult to learn in such a large group. The classroom is set up as one long strip, with the instructor all the way at the end. Unless you're all the way at the front, it's quite challenging to see what happens. You probably spend 15 minutes checking in and doing intros. The demo is probably another 20 minutes. You then get to start doing it yourself. The last 15 - 20 minutes is allocated to cleaning / getting instructions on pick up your pots. So, of the 2 hour class, you are probably only  + more

Mariana was a wonderful teacher. I loved that she was open, honest, and thorough in her instructions. I appreciated her embracing each individual’s artistic nuances and processes. She sparked something amazing in me. I will definitely be taking another class.

Sergio Perez Jan 2023

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



Teacher was nice and patient, the group was large and she was able to run up and down the length of the store which is narrow and help anyone who was really struggling. some people did not want help and just wanted to try themselves without assistance. Like every restaurant and smoke shop on this block between 52 & 53rd, its narrow and long but it’s NYC so expected. We had unlimited clay!  + more

The teacher was so sweet and did a great job with making us all feel welcomed and important. She remembered all of our names and helped whenever I was in a rut. Her demo was awesome too. The studio itself was really cute and good vibes. The turnaround time is pretty quick too. I'm excited to go back!

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



I had a blast at pottery NYC this past weekend. I went with my two sisters and we all agreed that is was such a great experience. Price wise the class is a little steep but when compared to other pottery classes in the city the cost tends to even out as this one includes a fired piece that you can pick up in just a week! Lou (or Lu, I did not catch the spelling I apologize) was a literally saint. They were SUCH a good instructor and so patient with everyone. She brought my first born pottery piece back to life and I can’t thank her enough. Lou  + more

It was a little expensive but definitely a great time! Our instructor was great, he said it was his first day and he was really friendly, helpful and really got the whole class engaged. He came over and helped when asked (above and beyond if you ask me) and was really supportive by really wanting us to make our own personal pieces. All the materials We’re really easy to work with which was really  + more

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



There were too many people in the class. For a $100 class there should have been a lot fewer people. Wasn’t able to get too much time from the instructor. The class was supposed to be 1-3 pm but we were told to stop making our pieces at like 2:20 pm and we were all done with cleaning and out of there by 2:45 pm


Heather Lavalle Jan 2023

I hosted a private class for my birthday and couldn’t have asked for anything better. Lu was my instructor and she jammed out to music with us, showed EPIC levels of patience, and almost effortless skills as she led my group of friends.

Our instructor was great as she gave us step-by-step instructions as to how to craft the pieces. As she floated around to observe our work, she was patient, encouraging and honest. I look forward to picking up my completed piece.


Adam Rosen Dec 2022

Lou was a great teacher and my wife and I had such a great time. Can't wait to see how our pieces turned out after being baked. Will definitely do it again


Alexander Dunn Dec 2022

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



Our teacher was great, she was very helpful to the class when we had problems and gave us all enough attention to help guide us through the process which we were all unfamiliar with. It did seem like having a second person on staff for such a packed busy day would have been good though. All in all money well spent for my girlfriends birthday, and we each got a piece of pottery to take home in a week.  + more

Our group had so much fun in this class. Can’t wait to see how our pieces turn out.


Kiara Lora Dec 2022

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class



The venue is small and it difficult to teach a whole group, perhaps having two instructors on each end and divide the groups, especially if it’s their first time. I didn’t know you can only fire one piece, so if you worked on hard on multiple pieces, you would have to choose. Wished they mentioned that at the beginning of class. Also, 30 minutes of the session shouldn’t be dedicated to cleaning up. I shouldn't have to pay to clean up the space. Otherwise it was first good experience. The instructor was nice and helpful.

My partner and I did our first pottery class and it was a BLAST! Our teacher, Lou was laidback and knowledgeable which made the two hour class fly by. Lou was also a source of positivity and encouragement for the entire sold out class. We can’t wait to go again to get our hands deeper into pottery!

Our teacher was amazing and the class was well-worth the money! We each made about three pieces in an hour and a half, and could ask for help whenever we needed it. The studio was clean and prepped before we started, and cleanup didn't take long either. Great experience — we will definitely be coming back!
