Good instructor, gave us enough time to throw. Cool environment. Enjoyed learning something new. Yay

Sarah Tonos Sep 2023

Lou was out instructor. She was beyond great- very helpful, funny, and pleasant to be around. All materials that were provided were good. The instructions were easy to follow. Overall great experience.

Carla Pratico Sep 2023

The instructor Lou was so funny and incredibly helpful. Really enjoyed it Will do it again and bring more friends next time!

Michael Catton Sep 2023

Teacher was great! Really personable and easy going.

Venue was perfect but we were the only ones there. If it was fully booked I think it might’ve been a little tight.

Had a great time.

Sandya Muchimilli Sep 2023

The teacher was fun, relaxed & patient! Good price point & nice time length. Thoroughly enjoyed spending a Sunday morning with my girls doing this activity

Austin Joseph Sep 2023

Our instructors Malissa? and Thistle where great in getting us setup and rolling. Would 100% recommend the class to anyone else.
The class felt like good value for money and served as a great way to take a first crack at pottery.

Louisa Holden Sep 2023

The class itself was a lot of fun, however, a lot of it was just figuring it out for yourself because the instructors checked out half way during the class and were chatting amongst themselves in the back corner.

We started 10 minutes late to wait for people and the instructors said we would finish 10 minutes later to make up for it which did not happen -- we ended the class 10 minutes early.

It was difficult to see the instructor do the demonstration in the very beginning. The room was very narrow so the person in front of me was blocking the entire time. The layout isn't set up for watching someone teach you what to do.

I don't think the price of this class reflects the level of instruction and professionalism I experienced

Veronica Basara Sep 2023

It was awsome. Even tho I was running late we still got a quick simple demo of what to do. She walks around and helps guide you when you need. You can restart as many times as you want. You get as many tries to make something as you want and by the end of the night you get to choose your favorite one to bring home with you. You may intend to make one with and make something better later on. You can be as creative as you want. I was trying to make a candle stick but it looks a bit lob sided but the instructor helped me fix it a little and let me know not everything will be perfect but if I wanted perfect I can get it at IKEA. It can get messy but stains aren’t permanent. This is an awesome group activity or even a fun simple date night.

Terrence McSweeney Sep 2023

Mariana and Thissle were incredible instructors! Great energy and really nice people. Class is super fun, there's enough time to work on several pieces (you get to choose 1 to keep at the end of the class, can also keep extras for additional fee). Would 10/10 recommend this class. Fun for people of all ages of any artistic background.

Christine Boutin Sep 2023

The teacher was welcoming, patient and through. Everyone was on time and on schedule. It was a fun experience.

Kelli Scott Sep 2023

Thank you Mariana for such a wonderful experience for myself and my team. This was an incredible bonding and relaxing experience. You were so patient with us and answered all our questions with ease. I know large groups can somethings be overwhelming but you made sure we all had a great time. I would definitely take this class again.

Instructor was the perfect balance of helpful and letting us have our space. Would highly reccommend

Brian Wang Sep 2023

fun and informative! Instructor was encouraging and made sure to help anybody who needed it

Marquis Simpkins Sep 2023

I enjoyed the class. The instructor was helpful a great space. I’d go back again definitely!

Juanita Harty Sep 2023

The experience was fun. I didn’t know what to expect but was comfortable with trying and learning. The teacher was ok, not as enthusiastic as we expected. She helped us though, and explained the 5 steps. Overall, we had a great time and would do it again.

Rasha Sep 2023

Teacher was great. She was very very patient and checked up on each student during class. Time went by really fast, especially for a first timer. Only got to do 3 pieces, but definitely got one that I was proud enough of to keep. Studio is small and I would have rather had a little more room between each person / wheel but made best of the space I guess. Thank goodness my class was only 6 person big because I think having more than that can be a bit overwhelming especially if one or two persons need more attention than others. I would definitely recommend this experience to others and being able to have one piece that you made to take home is worth the price.

Derek Sep 2023

Had a great time. Our teacher, Thistle, was really nice and helpful. We had plenty of time to get the hang of it and make something fun.

Bailie Brown Sep 2023

Amazing experience! As first-timers, we were presented with all the materials, instructions, and help we needed. Instructor was super nice and explained things well. Had lots of fun and came away with cute pieces!

Barbara Samuels Sep 2023

Thistle was so kind and patient! We only wished we'd had a little more time!

Michelle Meserati Sep 2023

Had such a wonderful time! Will be signing up for a pottery course next. Thank you.

Kristie Hung Aug 2023

We went in on a Sunday and lucked out on getting the whole space to ourselves. The studio was clean and tidy and we were greeted warmly. Before trying out the wheel for ourselves, we got familiarized with all the materials available to us and watched a live demonstration by our instructor Lou.

During the process I asked for assistance often. Lou was always patient with me and enthusiastically helped with any questions, it made the experience really enjoyable. At the end, we made 3 pieces on our first try - super satisfied and would definitely recommend.

Riley Feinour Aug 2023

great experience, nice teacher, instructor was not rude although we were late from the office.

Eunji Kim Aug 2023

We had an amazing teacher and we got our hands dirty!

I loved that we could make multiple pieces to practice, and there was freedom on what to make. I wish there was an option to fire up more than one piece at the end, even at an extra fee!

Haitham Jendoubi Aug 2023

The teacher, Thistle, was super kind and patient. I loved my piece, can’t wait to see it fired and glazed!

Robert Weinstein Aug 2023

The pottery throwing class was a lot of fun and the instructor was excellent. Lots of help provided along the way when needed.

Daniel Chalk Aug 2023

Really fun and interesting intro class. Teacher was great, very supportive. Great date night idea.

Kimberly Mei Aug 2023

Great experience! Informative and relaxed, positive instructor and demonstration. We had plenty of free time to play around with the wheels ourselves and create our own pieces. Highly recommend

Bom Lee Aug 2023

It was really fun and the instructor explained it very easily. I wish we had a bit more time since I felt like we were rushing by the end of it.

Agostino Sandolo Aug 2023

Had a great 1st time making pottery. Our teacher was excellent and so helpful. Will definitely recommend this location to our friends and family.

Excellent class! Lu was a fantastic teacher - funny, kind, thoughtful and helpful. This is what a 10/10 experience looks like.

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class review by Arjun Desai - New York City

Cai Salstein Aug 2023

We had Lou as our teacher and she was FANTASTIC! The studio itself was a super clean and chill environment and Lou made sure to attend to everyone personally and help them out! She helped me center my clay and pull a handle for my mug and was so sweet throughout the class. We will definitely be returning! I think the only downside is that you can’t choose a color when you fire your clay, it’s just porcelain white! Other than that this is a lovely studio with a great vibe (:

Michael Christatos Aug 2023

The instructor was amazing and gave us plenty of coaching and guidance.
Would love to come back and learn more.

Akeilia Thompson Aug 2023

Had such a wonderful time! Our teacher was so patient, encouraging and kind! We’re coming back!

Jin Zheng Aug 2023

The class was very beginning friendly. I picked the 7PM class and there was 5 other people in the class. I would say about 30 mins was an intro and demonstration and 15 mins at the end to clean up. The rest of the time was making our own pieces which I was able to make 3 pieces in total. For the price I think it’s definitely a fun solo activity or even date/ group event.

Whitney Madrid Aug 2023

Our teacher was great and we had an amazing experience! Great date night idea and bestie date

Alisa Alferova Aug 2023

The class was awesome, we had a very good time! The teacher was super friendly, approachable and a lot of fun She explained everything really well and then would come over and see how everyone was doing. Really nice touch - she would refer to everyone by their name. We were able to make a few pieces and could keep one. I'm very excited to collect it in a few days. Would totally recommend this class

Jayne Whitman Jul 2023

This class was great! Our teacher, Lou, was so lovely - explained everything super clearly, was very enthusiastic, so friendly and attentive. The class was structured well with a 20 minute demo, 1.5 hrs of time on the pottery throwing wheel, and 15 minutes for clean up. We got to make as many items as we wanted/could and choose one to keep/have fired in the kiln to be picked up later. Lots of fun, very informative, a great activity!

Carli Wargo Jul 2023

The class was great! Pottery is hard but Lou was so helpful and supportive. This was my first time taking a pottery class and I really enjoyed the class, and the people in the class.

Matenin Doumbia Jul 2023

Lou, was great, so nice & a Wonderful instructor! I definitely will be taking this class again. Hopefully something long term.

Barbara Cifelli Jul 2023

My daughter and I truly enjoyed the class. The instructor gave an excellent demo, had a great vibe and was most helpful. We choose a group class which was at full capacity, in retrospect it might have been better to choose a "private teacher" session. We look forward to returning in the future. Loved the space!

Lou was an encouraging and supportive instructor. Her class provided a great intro to the basic pottery techniques in a relaxed environment.
I’m definitely going to be back for the 4-class intro in the fall.

Kelly Marroquin Jul 2023

Teacher was great at explaining what we needed to know quickly and concisely. We had a great time.

Andrea Rodriguez Jul 2023

Teacher was fun& helpful. I really appreciate how he made us feel comfortable and encouraging. The space is nice and simple. Can feel a little crowded but you will be sitting down most of the class.

The value was good and price known it was discounted for a dry run. The place was great, teacher was great. The pedals need something so they do slide around and clean up became chaotic with a bottle neck. All in all I want to go back,

Rachel Ho Jul 2023

Lou was so helpful and cheery the entire time. The 2 hours flew by but I love how it was an intimate setting with ~10-12 people so it was not intimidating to talk to neighbors or ask for help.

Anjelica Macgregor Jul 2023

Absolutely loved my experience! I learned so much and the teacher was patient and knowledgable. The class made me want to sign up for the course. I would definitely recommend! :)

Iuliia Bogatyreva Jul 2023

Kausar Rehman Jul 2023

It was such a wonderful experience. The teacher was so kind, patient and helpful. All the materials were provided and it was a cute, little and comfortable studio.
I’d definitely go back!

Nancy Wayne Jul 2023

Our teacher Lou (sp?) was terrific. She explained and showed all the steps very clearly and was super helpful during class. She was also very encouraging. It was a wonderful mother-daughter-daughter activity. We had a great time. Thank you!

Our instructor Lou was great and super patient with my niece and nephew.

The venue was small but clean and had everything organized perfectly.

Would definitely be back.

Gabriela Suarez Jun 2023

Thistle was awesome Brought my boyfriend here as a birthday gift and he absolutely loved it. Great instruction, great intimate studio, and loved that we were able to make as many pieces we wanted in the time allotted.

Eileen Deng Jun 2023

Our teacher was amazing, extremely active/supportive and constantly checked-in on everyone. He had great tips for us :) Really like that we will all be able to take home a piece (once they're glazed).

Nicholas Gomez Jun 2023

We had a great time, the teacher explained everything very well and made everyone feel comfortable while playing relaxing music and giving helpful advice to all of our questions. The space is like a long hallway but you have enough space to create comfortably. I went to a different pottery class (different business) a few years ago and enjoyed this experience a lot more- You are allowed to make as many pieces as you want with in the time frame and you pick the piece you like most to keep. The price includes them cooking it as well (the other pottery class required we pay more to keep the only one piece you created).
I would like to do this again and get better, I think its a good value for the price and would recommend anyone who wants to do this to go here.

Julie Pelaez Jun 2023

We had a terrific team building activity here. So much fun! Looking forward to see how our pieces turned out.

I couldn’t give this whole experience more stars! The instructor-her name was Thistle- was so great, fun and patient. We got to make a few pieces and pick one to fire. It was so much fun and I want to come back next week. We’ll see ;)

Tracy Nguyen Jun 2023

She was very attentive and a clear instructor! We'll be coming by again in the future for sure

Jordan Jeter Jun 2023

I had an amazing time for my birthday at Pottery NYC! It was my first time and our instructor Lou was great! Everything we needed was provided to us. I was able to create three pieces (that I was proud of LOL). I shopped around for some spin wheel pottery places, and Pottery NYC offered the best deal. If you are considering booking with them, DO IT!

Bilal Rizvi Jun 2023

We had been struggling to find a pottery workshop we could do as a couple so stumbling onto this was AMAZING. Lou was great as an instructor, kind, patient, and willing to help. Lots of mistakes were made but we had a great time and can’t wait to try again. Especially with the discount mentioned by Lou!

Roshni Shah May 2023

This class is fantastic! This was my first time taking a pottery class. The instructor was very friendly and helpful. She took time to explain how to do the various steps. Overall, it was a fun class. I even got to pick up the completed bowl (glazed?) I made in class at a later date. I would highly recommend it to people interested in trying out pottery for the first time.

Maya Pandurangan May 2023

My group had a great time learning to throw clay! Our teacher gave us a super beginner-friendly and thorough demo of what to do & gave helpful feedback throughout our class. We all had an amazing time.
Thank you Thistle

Meryem Guzelcumbus May 2023

For the price, you'd expect a slightly more attentive teacher, but I suppose given the size of the class I don't think that would be possible. I had created a few pieces in this class and had asked the teacher to help me remove one of them (the one I was going to keep) onto a tile since I was a little nervous doing so myself. She had unfortunately very forcefully pulled it off the wheel, leaving it lopsided and deformed with a large bubble underneath it. We were also told that the final piece would be clear glazed and would be just white at the end. Again, for the price of nearly $100 (which I'm aware in NYC is relatively normal) this isnt really good enough. The teacher was polite however and some tools were provided.

Sophie Bronsil May 2023

I bought this class as a gift for a friend of mine and we had the best time. We had never done pottery before and yet we managed to make a piece that we were proud of. The guidance and support of the teacher is awesome as it is a small group so she has time to come help you whenever you need. I would definitely recommend and I am looking forward to going back!

Marianna was wonderful. She explained each step well and was super encouraging during the class.

Samantha Han May 2023

Lou and Thistle were very helpful! Lou instructed us how to make a bowl and the class was so small she was able to go to each one of us and provide personal help.

Yi Zhao May 2023

Great class, I made great achievements. Pity that I can only fire one item. sad had to give up one

Alana Daniel May 2023

Teacher was amazing & the studio was so cool! The class was perfectly paced & small enough to where the instructor was able to help anyone 1:1 that needed it and make sure we were all setting ourselves up to make pieces we loved at the end.

Frieda Abettan May 2023

The beginner class was awesome. The teacher was super friendly and helpful, making sure each person went home with at least one piece.

Sharon Yan May 2023

We had around 1.5 hours of the 2 hour class to actually work on the pottery wheels. I spent the majority of that time on just one piece and perfecting it as much as possible before removing it from the wheel to be fired. After removing from the wheel, I noticed a small scratch on my piece that I was trying to fix manually since I wanted my piece to have a seamless exterior, but the instructors assured me that they would go back and touch up everyone's work before firing them. When I went back to pick up my completed piece, there were multiple new scratches and marks and small bits of clay stuck to the inside and outside which made my piece rough and bumpy to the touch. I was surprised since it seemed like the instructors did not handle our pieces very carefully after the workshop and definitely did not go back to touch anything up. Given that this workshop was almost $100 and we could only have one piece fired, I was pretty disappointed with the quality.

Such a great class, highly recommend it. This is the 2nd time I sign-up for pottery classes at Pottery NYC - the instructs are great, fund and very helpful. Time flies by and you'd be surprise to see how much progress you make in 2h.

Highly recommend it as a solo activity or friends.
Thanks Mariana for the great class!

Doreen Liang May 2023

Such a fun class with Lil! I booked this session for a bachelorette activity and the girls enjoyed it very much. The instructor was very accommodating and patient even though we were running behind schedule that day. She had a positive attitude and was super helpful throughout the class.

It is pretty good. The staff was very friendly and patient. I enjoyed it. Thank you!

Sarah Varughese May 2023

My two friends and I booked this class to celebrate a friend's birthday and our experience at Pottery NYC was wonderful! From the moment we entered in, we were greeted by our instructor, Lou, who was warm, welcoming and extremely kind. Throughout the class, she was attentive to all of our needs and swooped in to save us when we needed it (which for myself and my friends was fairly often). She made us feel at ease and truly made the whole experience so much more enjoyable! We are so grateful to have had her as our instructor and will definitely return for another class with Lou!

James Oliver May 2023

Felts very comfortable and supported during the class. Instructions were clear and concise. Overall great experience

Avery Ouellette Apr 2023

Our teacher Lu was amazing, everyone was assisted as needed and the steps were broken down simply so that we were all capable of making a simple form at the end of the class! The studio was small but perfect for the class size. I wish the studio offered open throw sessions as well because I would love to “rent a wheel” for a few hours every now and then and keep working on form!

Hanna Horowitz Apr 2023

I don't ususally write reviews but this was so much fun. The instructor took his time and was really patient teaching us with no experience making pottery. I would go again.

Julian Thompson Apr 2023

The teacher was great I think her name was Lau. I sadly forgot but she was extremely helpful even with the other groups involved. Never had a hard time getting her attention when needing help. Very encouraging

The location itself is good but easy to miss/walk pass if your not paying attention.

I think the price was a bit much but it was worth the experience. Me and my partner fully enjoyed our time there. With the other staff there was always clay available and the area was organized

Would do again

Norah Candito Apr 2023

Had so much fun with friends at Pottery NYC wheel throwing class. I had a preconceived notion that wheel throwing was challenging for a first-comer. Our teacher, Lou, was excelent at demonstrating and provided a fun class environment. I got into such a flow and could have stayed for hours. Will definitely be back! Absolutely worth the value of the class.

Courtney Cheatham Apr 2023

Taylor Frisch Apr 2023

The class was great! The teacher was very friendly and created a productive and comfortable learning environment. They were very encouraging! The materials were also seemingly of good quality and we all were able to keep one piece! Good value for your money considering how expensive it would be to do wheelthrowing on your own. Overall very satisfied.

Ido Michael Apr 2023

I recently took a pottery class and had an amazing experience. The teacher was great, the venue was well-maintained and all materials were provided. The class was good value for money, and we learned basic pottery techniques while making a variety of pieces. The best part was how relaxing it was to create something with my own hands. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in pottery.

Tiffany Silverstein Apr 2023

All the materials were provided and Lou was an eager patient teacher who was happy to give personal attention. A great experience!

Ewan Richards Apr 2023

This class was amazing! Our Instructor, Thistle, was so patient & extremely helpful. She was able to lay the fundamentals for us to understand easily without much effort. It was very laid back in a serene sort of way but soo much fun. This is our 1st of many!

Mariana was a great teacher and there were great vibes in the room. It was our first time trying pottery on the wheel and it was a blast and a half!

Bhavana Ragipani Apr 2023

My experience at Pottery NYC was fantastic. The studio is a clean and intimate space. My friends and I went as a group of 4 and there were only a few more people there. Lou was really sweet and she took the time to learn all of our names before the start of the class. The class started off with a 20min demo where Lou taught us the basics of wheelthrowing and gave us helpful tips on working with the clay. Then we spent the remainder of the class throwing as many pieces as we could. Because of how small and intimate the class was she was able to go around and really guide us through the entire process. This was my first time and with her careful instruction I was able to make a really cute vase. I had a lot of fun working with the clay and learning all the techniques. I made a total of 3 pieces and I got to pick my favorite one for the team to fire up and glaze. It’ll be ready in a week and I can’t wait to see the final product. I had an amazing time and will definitely be going back.

Patrice Singh Apr 2023

Class was ok. Some things I would change is 1 music. Creating a vibe. 2. The instructor shows us what to do first then lets us do our own thing. I think it would be better to instruct and we follow because by time she was done showing us I forgot everything. 3. Instead of us creating whatever we wanted have the class chose 1 thing we wanted such as a cup and we all follow and create a cup. I struggled mainly because I didn’t know what to create or had no sense of direction. Just my personal opinion.

Tanvee Trehan Apr 2023

Lou was a great teacher. Incredibly talented, very patient with us as students and so helpful. We had a great time and it was truly an experience! My sister and I booked this class for my mother who was visiting us from out of town as a fun, new thing to try and it was different, but so worth it!

Crystal Jin Apr 2023

This was such a fun class! The teacher was super friendly and encouraging and we had ample time to get to know the feel of everything. Definitely recommend

Seymone Kelly Apr 2023

Saturday morning, I went to a Pottery Wheel Throwing Class at the company called Pottery NYC. I enjoyed it so much! The class was from 10am - 12pm and there were only 8 of us. Our instructor Lu was so amazing! For the first 15 minutes, she demonstrated how we were going to use the machine and create pieces with our clay. We got to make three pieces but only one we are able to take. She explained that we would have to come back in a week. She played jazz music in the background and came to each of us individually to check in.

Overall I enjoyed my experience so much! I would take this class again and I would want Lu as my instructor. 10 out of 10!

Rachel Hirsch Apr 2023

Thistle was an amazing teacher, we came here for my fiancé's birthday and had the best time! It was crazy how much progress we made in just a few hours. We were allowed to make as many pieces as we wanted but only pick one to keep. This was awesome since it alleviated a lot of pressure in case we messed up what we were working on. Great class for beginners. We have never touched a wheel and both ended up with pieces we love. Can't wait to pick up our work in a week! Thank you again!

Jennifer Rosenthal Apr 2023

Teacher was excellent - patient, informative, helpful & funny. There were three of us, and all new to throwing pottery and we all loved the experience. Definitely plan to get dirty. :)

This was my first time taking this type of class and I am glad to say that Lou was an amazing instructor. She made sure to go over the basics on how to shape the clay and walked around to make sure to help everyone and anyone who had questions. Definitely a fun and insightful class. Would definitely comeback and try a different class to learn a new style.

Instructors were very nice and helpful in learning how to navigate this new skill. It was very fun and we enjoyed being able to make several pieces to get more used to shaping the clay and getting creative with designs. We also liked how it was a small group so everyone could get support when needed.

Lou was an amazing instructor. They were very attentive and loved the fact they used everyone’s name when addressing them. I can’t wait to have another class there!

Francis Distor Mar 2023

Teacher was very enthusiastic and helpful! Only downside is there’s one teacher so getting her attention was a struggle as others definitely were getting more help.

Heather Hamacek Mar 2023

The wheel throwing class was so much fun and Lou was an encouraging, patient and friendly teacher. I’d highly recommend this to anyone interested in trying out wheel throwing — no matter how novice or nervous you are!

Chloe Becquet Mar 2023

Great class for beginners! Lou was awesome, patient and super helpful. You start with a short demo with Lou going over the basics, then you spend the rest of the session getting your hands with the clay and making your own pieces. This was super fun and i'm looking to come back for a course. Highly recommended.

Allison McCants Mar 2023

Really enjoyed the experience. Great instructor and very cool vibe. Ample time to learn and make a couple of pieces. Would recommend!

Definitely worth the money! It was a great beginner class to get a feel for it. The teacher was very hands on if you neededmore guidance.

Caroline Welch Mar 2023

Marianna was a great instructor - super helpful, patient, and positive. very fun class, lots of time to try on the wheel. For the price, I do wish it was maybe at least a half hour longer - it felt like we were just getting the hang of it when we had to clean up. But great that they include one piece in the cost and the location was awesome (right in Hell's Kitchen). Overall, would definitely recommend!

Claudia Degteva Mar 2023

She should be more attentive to the students with more difficulties. But I loved the introductory class!

Jeff Blackman Mar 2023

What a great time for date night - so much fun to learn to wheel throw. The instructor (Lu/Lou?) was patient and seemed to have a lot of fun answering our questions over and over.
Would recommend for small groups looking to try something new.

(also I had to reschedule my original date and they were very helpful with refunding the original date so we could attend a few days later)

Brooks Ross Mar 2023

Thistle was great. First timer but picked unit up toward the end. Thanks a lot

Janna Joassainte Feb 2023

The teacher was great with instructions. She also spent time helping everyone fix their pieces. She made sure everyone has plenty of opportunities to make a good piece to bring home.

Anna-Sophia Haub Feb 2023

Great class! Very experienced teacher who was patient and excited about small successes by students. Would highly recommend! Pricing is fair, but I wish you could take home 2 pieces instead of one!

Micah Wallingford Feb 2023

Teacher was very nice! Learn how to spin some pots here. It was very fun, and especially perfect for a date.

I had never taken a pottery class before and this was very fun and a great introduction to a pottery wheel. You can practice as many times as you want and get to choose which of your finished products you can take home. Recommend for a fun night.

Camille Cortes Feb 2023

Amazing class! Lou is a phenomenal teacher. It was very fun and felt like I became a pro after 2 hours although I came in as a beginner. The space is also pretty adorable. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in making pottery, beginner or expert.

Tanyapat Jarupichitpong Feb 2023

Great experience! The instructor was so kind and the place was so clean. I definitely gonna come back again ;)

Joseph Pierce Feb 2023

Thisle was great! She made a difficult activity fun. She was hands on when needed and hands off when it was time to explore the clay.

Suzanne Dengel Feb 2023

Absolutely loved this class! It was so fun to learn something new! Lou was so patient, kind and thoughtful about guiding everyone through. I am certainly no artist and failed many times and they reassured me that I’d get it! Even with five minutes to spare, they saved the day and guided me through it. 10/10 would recommend.

Hannah Smith Feb 2023

The class was fantastic! Our instructor, Marianne, was helpful in the overall demonstration and individual guidance with a relaxed and informative personality. We were able to work with the clay for the entire time and choose our favorite creation at the end to be glazed and take home after a week. The space was the right size where each person had their own working space but were able to talk with those around and quickly find the needed materials. Highly recommend to anyone trying to have a few hours away from everyday and work with their hands to create something!

Joseph Jr Feb 2023

It was great! Excited to see how they the pottery turns out. Thanks Thistle for a fun class

Gusta Veitnere Feb 2023

The class was a bit crowded. For the price of the class would expect one can keep all the pieces they make and would also expect hiring someone to clean up after the class and not ask the attendees to do so.

Siena Mayer-Costa Feb 2023

What did you like most? === having your own time to make pottery and having unlimited attempts with the clay

What did you like the least === wish we had more time for clay throwing and did not get interrupted by people who kept showing up late. We had to clean up after ourselves which wasn't that bad but took away from time to wheel throw

What was the teacher like? === Lu was very informative and helpful!

How was the venue (if applicable)? === venue was small and cozy. little hard to navigate to get the supplies if it's a crowded class

If materials were provided, did you like them? === materials were fine

Was the experience good value for money? === it was kind of pricy but a good experience. Wish they double coated the glaze before firing

Fu Chen Feb 2023

The class was very informative and very fun. Throughout the whole process we had help even if we were stuck at any point of shaping the clay.

Zohaib Ahmad Feb 2023

Class was excellent and instructor was very friendly and nice, would definitely recommend this experience

Melchor David Feb 2023

This experience was so much fun Our teacher was so helpful and explained everything so easily

Sabrina Feb 2023

Got this as a Christmas present and I loved it! We got a feel for the clay and were able to just have fun and make little pots and bowls. Definitely want to go back for another class

Clara Smith Feb 2023

The class was great! Instructors were super friendly and helpful! It was a gift for my mom, would recommend.

Kyle Brenn Feb 2023

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

Joshua Gelineau Feb 2023

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.

Andy Zhang Feb 2023

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

Kainat Malik Jan 2023

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

Toni-Ann Langella Jan 2023

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 helped if she had asked people in the back of the room to gather around her for the demonstration because we could not see the demonstration (worth noting that we were the first people there and chose seats in the front but were forced to move to the very back because people got there late and there weren’t seats together for them).

Jenny Zhang Jan 2023

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 throwing for 60 - 70 minutes.

Elise Pinnock-Toliver Jan 2023

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.

Chelsea Nolan Jan 2023

Really great and supportive teachers especially for a first timer. The class was a lot of fun!

Mujun Liu Jan 2023

Really good experience! I am so excited to see my work! Wanna try to learn more class

Gella Polanco Jan 2023

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! Which i like because I know ceramic materials are not cheap.

Was the experience good value for money?
Yes, the other local options stated a 6-8 week turn around and here it’s just one week from class date for pick up!

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!

Jeeyun Kang Jan 2023

It was great experience! 2 hours went super fast. I got this for my husband's birthday gift and he loved it so much ~ The place was very clean and staffs were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for giving us unforgettable memories.

Blaise Jacobson Jan 2023

So fun! Lou was great and very patient. Lou was very energetic and never made you feel like you were asking too much - which we both noted we appreciated since it was our very first time. We had such a fun time.

The class was well informative and fun. Overall great experience and would definitely do it again.

Emmanuella Nsiah Jan 2023

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 was so fun, great at explaining, created the most welcoming environment, and was so supportive throughout the whole class period. I might come back just to hang out with Lou. 10/10 class I could not recommend it more and I will definitely be back :)!

Manuela Velez Jan 2023

Lu was amazing, she was super friendly and very very helpful. Every time I needed help during the session she was there, all the tools were provided and she did an amazing job at showing the class around the venue. I would definitely recommend and come back!

Cristina Santos Jan 2023

Teacher was really helpful and encouraging. Planning to take more classes! It was so relaxing

Michael Kessler Jan 2023

Ritika Modi Jan 2023

Marianna was a kick-ass teacher! She was extremely friendly and attentive and did a great job of explaining the whole process to us, as we were all first timers. We had such a good time and learned a lot about throwing. We are excited to pick up our pieces and would definitely do this again!

Isa Tejeda Jan 2023

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time. Lou is great and took her time instructing. Your venue is just perfect, clean, neat, and the vibe is amazing. I Will definitely be taking another class in the near future.

Booked a private class for a birthday party. Our instructor Lou was so friendly, funny and helpful. Will definitely do this again!

Gillian Bar Jan 2023

Fantastic class, great teacher. Very patient. Wish we didn’t have to spend so much time cleaning up.

Sabrina Huaman Jan 2023

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 nice as well.

Pottery class review by Sabrina Huaman - New York City

Nehan Chatoor Jan 2023

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

Marianna was great and I met some very nice people. Didnt wind up making something on my first tr but had a lot of fun. Will do again.

Lydia Spencer Jan 2023

I really enjoyed this class! Would totally do pottery again! The instructor was very nice and funny! I can’t wait to pick up my piece in a week!

Allyson Castillo Jan 2023

Mariana was amazing! Her enrrgy was contagious and her teaching was phenomenal. Will be coming back to throw!

Jose Rodriguez Jan 2023

Had a great time during class. Pete is a great teacher and very fun. It was my first time in any pottery class and it was harder than it looks but i was warned! We all ended with a small piece to take home as memento. I would go back.

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

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. See my dreadful little thing in the attached image.

Pottery Wheel Throwing Class review by Alexander Dunn - New York City

Ayomide Akingbade Dec 2022

The teacher was super helpful and knowledgeable and gave all of us great encouragement towards making our first pieces. Extremely awesome experience

Kiara Lora Dec 2022

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.

Claire Pujol Dec 2022

My team came here for a private holiday/team building event. The teach was amazing and we all had so much fun. If you're on the fence, do itoverall great experience!

The teacher was nice, was easy to understand, really encouraging and made sure to help everyone that needed it.

Kevin Riddagh Dec 2022

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!

Lou was an amazing teacher who had great advice catered to what each student was making. The class made really diverse ceramics, which speaks to the ability of the teacher. The class was a lot of fun and definitely worth it.

It was amazing for first timers.
Teacher took time explain the techniques properly, fun experience.
Small class so it felt easier to ask for help and actually get it. Teacher really made the experience.

Pete was a great teacher and the class itself had a great atmosphere. He was very hands off in his approach but helped out when needed and overall made for a very wholesome fun and relaxed experience.

Dominika Dudek Nov 2022

What an awesome class! We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Pete was a fantastic teacher and made learning something new tons of fun. (Thanks Pete! :) He is also super knowledgeable and talented. We loved it so much we’re already planning our return visit.

Pythagore Antoine Nov 2022

Hey guys! It was an awesome class. Would love to do it again! Thank you!

Samaa Khullar Nov 2022

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!

Simon Jensen Nov 2022

I’m new to pottery and this class teaches you the basics. Teacher was kind patient and we had time to make 3 pieces. I’m interested in practicing and he mentioned classes are open for us to come back. Definitely have a new appreciation for the art of pottery!

Really great crash course in wheel throwing! Pete was super helpful and was very attentive to everyone in class. I liked the small class size and all the stations were clean and organized. Had a ton of fun and will be back soon to pick up my piece!
