Cute small studio in a residential area, so no problem parking. Class size was also just up to 2 people, so I loved the attention we received (I definitely needed it!) The instructor was super welcoming, made great conversation, and did great teaching us the skill.

The class started with a demonstration, and then when it was our turn, he would walk us through the steps, lending a hand whenever needed. We were able to try our hand at it twice to make 2 cups, and I definitely improved on the second one! He was very encouraging and accommodating, even when obstacles came up, such as my partner making the base too thing, or me forgetting to cut my nails (DON’T FORGET TO DO THIS ).

He was funny and I never felt an awkward moment. I was satisfied with my cus, even the wonky one, and his selection of glazes was beautiful, even if slightly limited compared to larger studios. I would definitely come back! (:
