Awesome Arizona State University degreed instructor...very knowleagle, exceptionally talented. We had lots of fun and were able to take home self-made pottery from Taos, NM. How cool is that? Don't doubt, just go!

We had a great teacher, Maria! We were able to glaze a Raku pot and observe the process of its firing. We also learned to throw pots on a wheel. Many opportunities while we waited for our Raku pot to fire. It was a blast !

Our instructor was very nice and helpful. We would have liked more background information on Raku technique and origins, also on how the kiln works or its process. The class is conducted in the same room with other people working on their own projects. It would be good to have an informal introduction to the others so we could feel more a part of the group as a whole. We felt an awkwardness as though we were intruding. I think an explanation of how the studio works and an agenda of what to expect would also be helpful. Again, our instructor was very nice, and it was a great experience.
